More progress on the basement

Another one of these is gone.

And this has taken its place.

These are going. Okay, went cheap, not a good thing to compromise the look for the price.

These will take their place.

The builder white is gone, YAY! Replaced by Revere Pewter.

More is left, carpet, possibly wood flooring in the sewing area, a proper island, be it a repurposed piece of furniture or cabinets. The existing cabinets are to be painted, white, black, charcoal, still vacillating. Then the hallway toward the powder room needs painting. Not the last of the builder white in the house, but damn close to it.
Currently planning a wide horizontal stripe.

Be sure to head over to Susan's for more Metamorphosis Monday!

At long last the peony has bloomed

I say at long last because it took a long, long time for this plant to start to bloom. So long that I wondered if I had planted it wrong. Frankly, I believe that it is planted in too brutal of full sun. It is more accurately full bake.
