MLS Tour: Ravenna Craftsman

I found this adorable craftsman cottage while browsing this week. I love the cozy feel and it has a farmhouse kitchen that is drool worthy. This house is I'm not sure how long the link will be active, but if you get a chance give the other spaces a look too. HERE

The blue paint and red door look just right to me on this house.

One of the things I really love about craftsman homes, is how designers were starting to really open spaces up and add natural light. From the looks of these spaces the windows are original and you can see how the open living and dining work well even today. This house will probably be very liveable another 100 years.

Check out those pretty windows surrounding a bright built in. I really like their choice of dining set too with the dark table and light settee.

This kitchen is perfect! I love everything about it. The style of the cabinets is a good match for the age of the home..

This laundry would also make a perfect craft studio, right next to the playroom area. Love the mint green paint on the cabinets.

This house has a good family feel and perfect spaces.. no wonder it's been snatched up by some lucky buyer. I have to say I'm glad the market in Seattle seems to be hopping again.. it usually trickles into Eastern Washington and maybe our local market will show an improvement too.

Bathroom Update

Our bathroom is still in progress..but looks soooo much better now than before. The new floor, paint, tub and cabinet hardware make a huge difference. The new tub and shower were of course the most expensive part.

You will have to excuse photo quality. I have misplaced the battery charger for my these photos are taken with the phone. (sigh)

The floor was the most time consuming with hubby having to rip out the old tile and cement board and put down some new plywood and then put down the vinyl floor.

I painted this ceiling white, it gets a lot of moisture from the shower and was gray and spotty. It's now bright and clean. My Anthro shower curtain needs an iron after I washed it today...I'll get to that someday when I'm not so busy.

New shiny hardware on fresh painted cabinets.

Fresh blue paint and some beach accessories. I found this canvas print at Ross and I looove it. In fact at the next house it will have a different life than bathroom art.

Next on the list is counter top and sink re-do and finally wall trim and new door. A few little things like a new register cover and outlets. But it feels much fresher now.. and cleaner.
