The Plan for Tomorrow

Here’s what I’m hoping will happen tomorrow.

Our friend who knows everything drew up some rough plans to help us evaluate our trim needs especially around the large openings.

The trim that is blocking our use of the living room will begin to be used.

The 5-foot opening bewtween the dining room and conservatory gets trimmed on both sides.

The first areas that need to be figured are the large arches between 1.) the dining room and conservatory and

The opening between the master bedroom and hall across from the new closet also gets special casing.

We purchased 1 by 6, 1 by 4, cove molding, screen door bead, and 1 by 2 for these two openings.

The dining room opening (from the conservatory side) may one day get French doors.

I got my inspiration here.

I hope it looks better than my mock-up.

We’re challenging our carpenter friend to  make it work.  My challenge is to paint it. Can’t wait to show you the before and after.

Do you have great inspiration? How do you implement?

Welcome to The Glade, where the second generation of renovations has just begun and the mania about our home, music and other passions fill our days and nights. We’re Charlie and Jo in the music world; Mary Jo and Charles to family; and JoJo and Charlie to each other. We are renovating a midcentury house in a Victorian historic district where we want to live there the rest of our lives. It's a 1946 house located in Maryland. We were married in this house. Thus far (pre-blog) we refinished cabinets, added a window seat (still working on the cushion), rearranged a wall in the guest house due to sink/vanity replacement, planted a vegetable garden, and other quick and not-so-quick fixes. So this latest zeal for construction is the result of my having lived here since 1997 and feeling a need to ready the house for the next chapter and beyond.
