|Finished off the barnboard details|
I used hard as nails to glue the stairs in place and was thrilled that they came out level in all directions without needing the pack of shims I bought! I'm getting better at this carpentry stuff! (I'm so proud of myself!)
I also buckled down and almost finish trimming out the loft windows. I wanted to do something creative to cover up the seams of the plywood, but it didn't turn out the way I wanted so, I scrapped that idea, took the loss in money and went for the materials I had on hand...the leaf trim that I hand stained. Not only did it work out perfectly covering the mistakes I had made....but it's beautiful and ties everything in!

I love LOVE the look of aqua/turqoise with deep rich wood colors...so since I didn't get the exact color I wanted for behind the mandala in the salon, I got a more vibrant one for the loft. Plus it will tie in perfectly with the bedspread I found in the fall last year! Again...things coming together so nicely...they always seem to when you follow your heart...follow your true dreams of your true self!
|cutting it up...tedious, but oh so satisfying!|
It felt really good to see so much done...sometimes its the little details we overlook, and don't realize how much those little details really contribute to the vision coming together. I added little 1/4 round trim along the corners of the loft as well and only have a few more things and I'm pretty much done! Hard to believe how close I'm getting to finishing it all up! I can so taste it....but love savoring what is currently in my mouth...it's watering just being here!
