Carriage House Workshop Construction - Day Four

Pin It
Ahh ... paint is a glorious thing! The color is a bit off in the photos but I am thrilled with the end result. The sage green is a nice and light color (although it looks a bit yellow here which it is not!) and the trim looks great painted in swiss coffee.  The new carriage door is done and Monday they will add the glass, moulding and tracks to hold it in place. How funny to think it's been years since the door could either open or close. They took the track off the wall and polished it up before putting it back on the wall. You can see it in the photo below.

 The windows required quite a bit of TLC as here they are drying after another coat of primer. I think they will be hung today or tomorrow. They haven't opened in almost 100 years ...

Here is a great look of what the ceiling looks like. You can finally see why I had them take out the low ceiling ... hopefully it makes sense!
Electrical comes tomorrow!
