Slowly making progress

We are slowly getting things accomplished at The Faded Farmhouse!  We are waiting on some final permits from the city but we hope to open in January!

This is just a little vignette that I put together as I finished painting pieces today.

Some pieces are halfway finished, some not at all.

When I first looked at the space the carpet was glaring and ugly.  I was told I could remove it and use the tile floor underneath.  My son in law brought his tools ready to rip it out and discovered it is glued down.  So the carpet has to stay.
You see these amazing shutters he made for us?  My daughter found the wood on Craigslist and he built them for us.  He had 14 of these shutters made in no time at all.  We found some cute black hinges to put on them at the Habitat store.

I can't wait until we get them hung and get those curtains off the windows!
I'm looking forward to the day we open our doors!
