One Step Closer to Our Dream Cottage

Have you ever felt as though your so close yet so far from crossing the finish line?  Home design and home renovation can evoke such feelings.  In the past month, we've transformed our cottage quite a bit.  At the same time, there isn't one room that I'd call finished.  Painting a room and developing ideas for your space is just the starting point.  Home renovation shouldn't be rushed.  As you live and breath the space, ideas should come to you.  Lately, ideas are pouring in.  Too fast!  Because of this rush of ideas, we've taken on too many projects.  Have you ever felt this way?  Despite taking on too much, I can't help but to feel one step closer to our dream home.  While we're on the subject of steps...

Pretty BORING, huh?

I generally really like carpet runners.  There is something so cozy and traditional about them.  We really didn't even dislike this one.  If you scroll back up to the picture of the staircase, you'll notice that the treads, risers, and side trim are all the same finish.  Rob and I needed a bit more pop.  A entrance deserves more, that's all!  Here's what Rob and I were up to late last night.

...if it looks like this...
it will be WORTH it.
