After over two weeks, I finally made it back to be with my father for the day yesterday. Good thing that I had thought ahead and taken his birthday gifts early because he celebrated another year in between. Storms! They cause problems.
You know what a trip to my sister's means: Pictures showing the progress on "the room."
That blue is growing on me and the floors are just gorgeous.
Many of my sister's plants are happily relocated. Now, when there are enough funds for furniture, perhaps my father will be happily relocated as well. He is looking forward to it!
Here he is just waiting for the furniture. He asked to be taken out there so he could see everything and so he could watch Grand Central Bird Station just beyond those windows.
I'm sure the room will be lovely when finished. It seems quite big and the floors are indeed fantastic. Happy Thursday, Vee.ReplyDelete
The room is beautiful! I love that wood wall. It looks like it will be a very inviting room with lots of sunlight. Great place for your dad to watch the birds. What a relaxing way to spend a few hours during the day. Beautiful!ReplyDelete
What a beautiful room! The perfect place to bird watch.ReplyDelete
Oooh we love seeing progress! I'm loving the blue paint, and that wood wall...what a wonderful work of art. It looks like the perfect place for your dad to watch the birds.ReplyDelete
So sorry the weather has prevented your visits/travel. That truly is a gorgeous room - every detail is lovely. My dad always loved to sit in front of the windows and watch the birds. Saying a prayer for you, your dad and sister today. God bless.ReplyDelete
So beautiful! I love the color; our living room is blue also, maybe a bit lighter than hers. I also like the cedar (?) or shiplap (?) on the wall by the fireplace.ReplyDelete
It is called Penobscot wood reclaimed from the bottom of the Penobscot River...lost logs on river runs of long ago. Thank you for stopping by...Delete
Bird watching is delightful. Interesting how it's popularity grows as one ages. The room is beautiful and I am looking forward to seeing it with furniture and family installed!ReplyDelete
Such a wonderful room, love the floor and the beautiful shade of blue on the walls.ReplyDelete
That is such a bright and fresh space. Those big windows will provide four seasons of entertainment!ReplyDelete
This room is just gorgeous....love the blue and the wood flooring! It's going to be house beautiful!ReplyDelete
beautiful room - every bit of it.ReplyDelete
your heart is equally beautiful. ♥
What a wonderful room this is becoming! I love the floors, the blue, the windows, the doors, the sunlight, the reclaimed wood -- what a beautiful space it is!ReplyDelete
What a great space, I really like the blue walls with the gorgeous floors, very pretty! Your dad is a lucky man to have family that care for and love him. I hope he enjoys this room, and can listen to the birds and enjoy them as much as he wants!!
I just love the blue and the wide open space where he can enjoy the view. The floors are beautiful and the wall of planks is absolutely the best!ReplyDelete
Oh, they ARE beautiful! I really love the tone of the wood and I think it looks just lovely against the blue walls. What beautiful light in that room and the perfect place for watching the birds!ReplyDelete
It is beautiful! And that wood wall is breathtaking! I'm not a big fan of blue but I'm loving it at your sister's place! Hopefully your dad will enjoy the room for a good long time!ReplyDelete
This looks like it came straight off of an episode of Fixer Upper. I love the floors, the wall color with the crisp white trim and all the big sunny windows. Such a gorgeous space. And it's for your father? I guess I missed that in previous editions. It's going to be such a lovely place for him to live :)ReplyDelete
No, it will be the new living room, which he will also enjoy. However, my sister and her husband did give up their new master bedroom and bath for our father. Yes, he's loved and blessed. Thanks for popping by.Delete
Beautiful floors and I love the color of the walls.ReplyDelete
Soo beautiful! This renovation/addition turned out very well!!ReplyDelete
That shiplap on the wall into the rest of the house is beautiful as well! It all looks like something from HGTV!
Happy Birthday to your dad!
Oh my! Loving the house. Really love those big doors. Thanks for sharing Vee. Hugs and blessings, CindyReplyDelete
I love the blue, and it looks so nice with the wood floors. They did a great job.ReplyDelete
What a big beautiful room. The wood is beautiful and I love the blue...looks like the slate blue that I have in my kitchen. I never get tired of it! Hugs!ReplyDelete
Wow - that room is gorgeous! Such a lovely space for your dad too.ReplyDelete
Love the planked wall and the floors are just beautiful. Happy weekend!ReplyDelete
He's going to love that room! I love it, too. Wish I lived close...I would love to sit in that room and visit with him AND watch birds. You have cardinals.ReplyDelete
It will be a lovely room, the bones are there already and as blue is my favourite colour you can't go wrong.ReplyDelete
Those floors are gorgeous. I am not a blue fan so not sure that would ever grow on me, but it sure complements the floorinf nicely.ReplyDelete
Your father looks very content tucked in the corner - who doesn't love to watch birds?
Had fun with the grand watching birds today - she said buh buh buh more than a few times, so this grandma thinks she'd genius, of course. You know anyone visiting Finch Rest likes those buh buhs an awful lot, right? : - )
What a beautiful big blue room. The floor is gorgeous.ReplyDelete
Perfect place for your dad in front of those wonderful sunny windows.
WOWZA stunning! So beautiful, a great big room waiting to be filled. So glad your dad has a place to enjoy watching the birds. Thanks for sharing the latest Vee. ~ AbbyReplyDelete
It will be nice for your dad to enjoy the renovation at your sister's home and to keep busy watching the birds.ReplyDelete
Wow! It is beautiful. I really like the blue, and you're right, the flooring is gorgeous! What a wonderful addition! So glad your Dad is enjoying it, and the birds!ReplyDelete
That is a gorgeous room! I didn't realize it was for your Dad. So awesome!ReplyDelete
It isn't. See response to Kathleen Grace above.Delete
That is a beautiful room, with or without furniture! The whole family will enjoy it a lot. I'm a fan of blue and that's a gorgeous shade with the wooden floors and the feature wall of wood.ReplyDelete
Glad you managed to get out and about a little between storms.
Stunning. Simply stunning.ReplyDelete
I am sure that a lot of life will be lived in that room. No wonder your dad wanted to go ahead and get started. :)
Hope you're enjoying a little reprieve from the storms and all the work that entails!
I'm loving this, Vee! It's sort of ironic...I've been embracing different shades of blue at the lakehouse as we furnish.ReplyDelete
We have thunderstorms and snow on the way. Odd, wouldn't you say?
This is a beautiful room. I love how light it is. I would love to have a room like that in my house.ReplyDelete
That is one gorgeous room, and your father looks very well there. I know you are thankful for the place he has. Glad you're close by.ReplyDelete
Well, that is gorgeous! Those floors... just lovely. Your sister must be thrilled and so ready to have everything in place. Blue is a good, calming color, so hopefully it will go well with the caregiving that your dad is needing now.ReplyDelete
Looks like a beautiful space. I'd want to sit there and look at that view, too. Glad you finally could make it out!ReplyDelete
What a bright and cheery room, the blue is very warm, yet soft!ReplyDelete
He looks just so sweet sitting there waiting...
What a lovely room. Love that pic of your dad sitting and waiting. A good spot for bird watching.ReplyDelete
Love the room...one of my clients wants a pallet wall like that. The windows are just wonderful to let the sun in and all of nature.ReplyDelete
This wall is more meaningful than a mere "pallet wall." This is reclaimed Penobscot river wood with lots of variations in color. My grandfather and great-grandfather were loggers who were "riders of the king log" in those drives of long ago. Thanks for stopping by, Janette!Delete
Very nice, Vee....and I just love the photo of your dad...and I would park myself right there as well. smilesReplyDelete
What a beautiful room! I love the color, the wood on the wall, and the flooring. I'd love to have a room like this one, complete with bird-watching out the windows. Your father will enjoy this!ReplyDelete
Hope your storms have subsided. Enjoy your weekend!
Glad you got to visit with your dad. OMG that room is gorgeous and I love the blue walls and flooring too!ReplyDelete
The room looks so beautiful and I do love those floors along with the wood wall. It's so nice to see your father enjoying this room and the birds, and another birthday. Have a nice weekend Vee.ReplyDelete
I like the blue room...with lots and lots of white....your dad is really going to enjoy this.ReplyDelete
