Lovely!  I also love the ceiling in your dining room...that's some nice detail!

I have lots of pics up on my blog: http://prairiebox.blogspot.com  You'll have to sift through to find house pictures; all I've posted about lately is my chickens!!  orngtongue.gif

 

We have the same window/door molding, but mine has no fireplace (oh how I wish!!) or box-beam ceilings.  No built-ins either.  We do have an open stairway, which I love.  And our layout isn't a textbook Foursquare layout either.  The living room is across the whole front; kitchen and dining in the rear, each taking up about half the width; and 3 bedrooms, a bathroom, and linen closet upstairs.  A previous owner enclosed our back porch, and we have a laundry/mudroom and half bath out there.  Your floorplan appears to have been elongated to make it fit better on a narrow city lot.  But it still looks like it meets the "official" Foursquare rules!  orngbiggrin.gif

I looked at your blog! I love how much work you've done to the house. I have lots of projects in my head but I don't know when I'll get around to it. Please tell me it won't take me 5 years to get around to refinishing the floors! I really wanted to do it before we moved in but I wasn't sure about the closing costs and we ended up moving in the day after closing. I do like your open staircase. I also see things in your house we like/have -Mucha prints, we had the same old kmart dining room table. My son's room is a blue-green that looks a lot like one of your bedrooms. Also I have very similar ideas for the eventual bathroom remodel, I picked out almost the same materials! (ok well in my head because that project will be in years)

 

Was your trim painted when you moved in? I've contemplated stripping ours but it seems like a huge job.

 

Our lot is really narrow I think it is 33x150.

 

AmmaMama-the chair doesn't belong in the dining room, it was moved there when we rearranged the living room. We haven't decided what to do with the chair yet, so it is in the corner of the dining room. Our kitchen is also in the back of the house but the lot behind us is a big apartment building and now that the leaves are coming down we are quite visible.

 

lookatreestar-that is my dilemma about the open shelves, I worry that cabinets will just get stuffed (like the ones in the island) and things won't be used. But I also think it looks busy the way it is.

 

 

Thanks for the input and compliments! I can't wait to get the rest of the house in order and painted.
