Painting the Cabin

When we were first married, we built a garage on my parent’s farm and lived in it for a few years with the intention that one day we would build a house there as well.  But life has a way of changing your plans and we ended up moving to the house beside our business.  Over the years the cabin has served as  a retreat to us or others and more recently as a fulltime home to various people that needed it.

Well, it is back to being a retreat and we have big plans.  We have changed out the interior doors from standard cheap painted mahogany (remember those old mahogany doors?) to a solid fir.  They are beautiful!

We are also going to paint.  The gold colour in the kitchen is becoming a soft yellow.  The green in the living room is turning into a soft blue.  The blue will also be going into the bedroom.  The hall and the bathroom?  Those colours are still up in the air.  I snapped a few photos with my phone to give you some idea of the changes (and the chaos) as we paint.

We are going to take our time and turn this cabin into a place where we can step out of life for brief moments and rest.
