The Master not yet Mastered!!!

Today over at Kelly's Korner it's show your Master bedroom so here it is, but beware it's not complete!
 The master of course it's not yet done, the doors still have to be painted and knobs need to be put on! The door on the right goes to the bathroom and on the left goes to the living room.
I'm tired of the big bulky armoire so it will probably be sold in the big garage sale I'm gearing up for. I really want a dresser to fill that wall that is not too deep and maybe paint it a soft gray.
 We still just have temporary window coverings so today I am going shopping to see if I can find anything to fit these windows that I like. I'm thinking of doing some stencil painting on some drop cloths, but for inside the window I'm undecided right now.
The ceiling was lots of work, but I love it!
 My side of the bed, I'm on the hunt for new lamps for both our nightstands.
 My husband's side of the bed, did you notice I get the remote!
 The doorknobs I choose and got them on clearance!...yes I know my hubs only put two of the screws in so far!
We haven't hung anything on the walls just yet, but I going to either hang a large initial wood cutout or the three canvases I ordered from the beach photos I took.

Well that's it hope you enjoy looking around!!!!

My new kitchen in progress!!!

 So today is show your kitchen over on Kelly's Korner so here we go with my new kitchen. We just moved in and still have a few things for the builder to do.
 I love the contrast between the beams and ceiling.
 I know my cabinet maker thought I was crazy when I gave him the drawing of how I wanted my custom hood made, but now he sees my vision!
 Awe my farmhouse sink, I dreamed of bathing my babies in one of these for so long unfortunately I don't think we will have anymore babies.
 You can see the desk area off to the right in this shot and the door to the screen porch which has my husbands man kitchen.
 This shot is from the breakfast area and I am still hunting for the perfect stools. I just noticed you can also see the mop by the coffee bar. This mom of two boys has to mop on a daily basis so I never quite make it to the laundry room to put it up!

 This chandelier was the first purchase that I made and it was on clearance! Also in this shot is our temporary curtains to block the afternoon sun while eating supper. We are shopping for bamboo shades for this area.
 The breakfast area looking from the island and yes only one set of windows has curtains for now! These country french chairs are unfinished right now because after all the decisions on this house I can't seem to decide if I want to stain or paint these!
 This all fridge/all freezer was a big want for us because my husband is big hunter and we always have lots of deer meat to store so no more walking to the shop for meat! I also should say I got an awesome deal on it because of a tiny dent that no one ever notices! The display area above has the tongue and groove because we wanted to use up all we had left and I choose to stain it for a different look.
This is my husband's coffee bar, but I get to clean it of course!
I really wanted the herringbone back splash, but it's not as visible as I hoped.
This piece is not finished it's supposed to look like a china cabinet, but the doors are not done yet. The hallway to the right leads to the garage, laundry, mudroom, powder room and pantry is right around the corner ( that open door).

So there is our kitchen hope you enjoy looking around!!!

My living room still under construction!

I haven't blogged in a long while, but I thought I would join in on Kelly's home tour today. 
 This pic is looking from my front entry. Don't you just love those temporary curtains? I am trying to find some bamboo roman shades, but not having any luck with the length of these windows a whopping 84 inches! The wall with the two transom doorways leads to the kitchen and is still  not painted due to the builder shooting a nail through the water pipes and the flooring and wall had to be repaired!!...yes that was a nightmare that still hasn't ended!
This wall is what you see looking in from the kitchen and of course the only thing on the wall right now is the beloved deer heads and by that I mean they are only beloved by my husband!!! Of course we are still waiting for our builder to come install our mantle and the two custom cabinets I designed that will go on either side of the fireplace.
The doorway on this wall leads to our master bedroom and bathroom.
This shot is looking from the massive windows to our front entry. You can also see the pocket doors and moldings that have not been painted yet. These doors lead to our dining room that at the moment is holding all the unpacked boxes.
For this wall I'm looking for two big comfy chairs, I've always wanted some with a tufted back.
Oh yeah I forgot we still don't have our hearth stone yet either as you can clearly see in this picture. So there you have it and it still has lots of finishing touches left to do. I'm looking forward to finding some great deals to decorate and furnish this huge new home that God has blessed us with!
