" TA DA "

We're No Magician's..............




But we did turn this................



Into this in one week! Notice that the top shelf is empty?



It's reserved for this 50th Anniversary set of GWTW plates from 1989 that I bid on and won on EBAY! They should be here Friday! :)


Here's a view from the kitchen doorway...............






From the foyer looking toward the FD's that go into the dogroom............






Standing in front of the new EC. The Fireplace is on the wall where the sofa was...........









Another shot from the foyer....









Now I'll let you browse the awesome Sunset we had yesterday! Some shots were taken with a flash and some without.............



















































































































This morning we have heavy fog.........

















HAVE A GREAT DAY EVERYONE ANd Thank You For All the B'DAY wishes to Melanie, She loved it!! :)

Beautiful sunset and absolutely splendid job on your project. Still cannot believe that it was all accomplished in just one week. I think you need to start your own business!!!

Gaston Studio said...

Great finished project and great sunset photos! I need to hire you to come help me recover my sofa and chaise lounge; the fabric's been sitting in my closet for over two months.

Congrats on your buy at ebay.

willow said...

Well done! Perfect for your TV. Can't wait to see your GWTW plates on the top.

Love the foggy fog.

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Oh My Goodness, Carol.. That is FABULOUS. The entire room looks better. Like where you put the little fireplace also. I'm so happy for you all. You are BOTH just too darn talented...

The sunset was smiling at you for all of your hard work...
Hugs,
Betsy

You are magicians! And, that is an amazing sunset. Wow.

Jen Chandler said...

Carol the shelf project turned out wonderful! It looks like it has always been there. Congratulations on winning the ebay auction! Isn't that fun? I bid on a stack of old Victoria Magazines once and got them. I did a little dance, thought I was the most spectacular thing in the universe :)

Tiffany Norris said...

LOVE it. Please come to my house. :)
I think I have that first GWTW plate of Scarlett surrounded by her suitors. I didn't do so well on collecting the rest, though!

Dirt Princess said...

I should have known you were a big GWTW fan!!! You're sunset pics are always gorgeous! What would be better is BILBO in those sunset pics!

Does the hubby hire out? Looks great!

Vicki Lane said...

Wonderful skies!

Reader Wil said...

You've done a great job, Carol! Thanks for letting us share in the warmth of your house and the stunning view of the sunset!

Kat said...

Love it all! Now that is a room to watch TV and relax or read in! But I love your sunset photos the best! And the fog in the morning. You live in a wonderful place.

Janet, said...

You all did a great job, wish I had an empty shelf to fill in my house.

KentuckyFarmGirl said...

Love the entertainment center! It looks great. Beautiful shots of the sunset, too!

Carolyn said...

I wonder do you ever run out of perfect sunsets?

The handiwork is wonderful. With 4 kids under my feet I marvel at such feats of accomplishment.

Pat in east TN said...

Your entertainment center turned out GREAT!

Love all your outdoor shots too.

PS You'll love your John Parris books!

Deb Shucka said...

What an amazing transformation! Enjoy.

Journaling Woman said...

Absolutely beautiful -your new entertainment area.

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

Hi Carol!

That is a wonderful entertainment center! The new big flat screens are making a lot of people have to come up with a new solution for display and I like yours very much!

I collected plates like that in the 70'sand early 80's, only mine are primarily of Norman Rockwell paintings. I still love them and display them on plate racks in my dining room.

Your sunrises and sunset photos are always spectacular!

lakeviewer said...

You know I envy you, right? Enjoy that bookcase. It's a great change.

Elizabeth Bradley said...

Absolutely fabulous! I wonder what you have up your sleeve next? Or do you ever just kick back and veg out? Naw, that's not likely to happen! ;-]

susan said...

Carol_ I think it is so hard to have a flat screen tv blend in a room, but you accomplished it! Looks great! I loved your tribute to your daughter. You know Miss Melanie did say "the happiest days are when babies come". :)She looks like a daughter any mother would be proud of--all except that TN vols stuff :) Oh yes, you can send me your Clark Gable plate if it won't fit up there :)

Nezzy said...

Absolutely magical. You and your Hubby must rock and roll well together. It's just perfect in your room, a job well done!

Have a wonderful day and just enjoy!!!

Pastor Sharon said...

Well. . . excellent project there! I love what you guys did!

I abosolutely love the sunset photo that is orange and black. I think it's my fav out of them all!

Marguerite said...

What a great job that hubby did on the EC! And those plates are absolutely gorgeous!! Lovely sunset, too!

Wobegon Cottage said...

It really turned out great. Everything looks so nice and those plates are to die for, LUCKY YOU.

Renie Burghardt said...

Wow, Carol, looking good! And I love the sunset shots. Most of my hundred some acres are woods, so I don't get a good sunset. Too many trees. The small 4 acre field is to the east, so I do get some nice sun rises, especially in the winter, when the trees, beyong the field, are leafless.

Loved all the pictures!

Hugs,

Renie xox

crochet lady said...

Great project. Your wonderful plates will look great on there!

Midlife Jobhunter said...

Scarlett will find pleasure in that top spot, I'm sure.

Love the fog - all of them, but the fog the best.

david mcmahon said...

You ARE magicians, Carol!

Arkansas Patti said...

You and hubby should look almost deformed with your chests so deservedly stuck out. WONDERFUL JOB you two. Such a difference!!!

Ah--tell me again what the "sun" is? Does it come out at night or in the day time. It has been sooo long since I have seen it. Thanks for the reminder photos.

the wild raspberry said...

Great remodel transformation for a room! And love the sunsets. It's rained here so much my memory is not retaining what a sunset is.

Jessica James said...

Wow! Congrats on finishing your project! That's quite an accomplishment. Sunset was beautiful too!

The Things We Carried said...

Lovely. Your place looks very warm and inviting!

Rachel said...

Lovely cabinet. Very fitting for a proper southern lady!

Angie Muresan said...

Now that room looks complete! I love the skies above your house. So beautiful!
