Dining Room Finished

Eric finished all his projects in the dining room, it started out as shadow boxes and a column to divide the space but turned into door frame, tray ceilings, crown molding, decorative beam, and canned lights.  When Eric does a project, he means business!  So after a month of dust, bangs, and constant construction, I think he has finally given the room his stamp of approval and yes, I like it too.
After: (you can also see the new hardwood floors Eric installed and Upholstered furniture that he finished a couple months ago)
Tray Ceilings/Can Lights:
Crown Lights that wrap around the entire floor:
 This door frame is particularly special because it is made mostly of the moldings pulled out of Eric's grandma's house and they are over 100 years old and repurposed.

Family Pictures 2014

Literally took us 20 mins to take these pictures thanks to my awesome sister who came to help.

My Dancer

I took the few minutes we had this month (why is May worse then December???) And took some pictures of my little dancer before she outgrew her solo dress.  She was pretty terrified to be up on the rocks but was mostly a good sport :)

Built in

Eric spent the whole weekend (and last) finishing this little beauty so we could have our family room back.  Its been a long time coming but it is finally finished.
Eric had a great time putting in all kinds of hidden cabinets.  This one has an outlet in it so the kids electronics will be hidden while they charge.

Eventually he wants to put in rows of drawers in here but since we still have 3 empty cabinets, he didn't consider it a priority.
Opened (partially):

Eric loves his surround sound, I hate the speakers everywhere.  Our compromise is magnetized hidden speaker covers.

He insisted on mounting the tv inside the entertainment center.  I thought we were building one to set the tv on.  What do I know.  The tv is on a mount that pulls out and this little cabinet is behind it so he can access all the wire when necessary.  Looks like the tv could use a little dusting!

Fake drawers that are actually a hinged shelf.
