hello. Welcome to our nook near the shores of Lake Lovely aka Lake Michigan. We have purchased a 100+ year old farmhouse on 5 acres. Feel free to follow us as we enter into the unknown world of renovations. Here we go!
Miss Bird has brilliantly created a floor plan / color palette for every room in the house. In this case, she suggests that the wood paneling (with black groove things) be painted bright green (with red groove things.) I love how this girl thinks!
While not nearly as creative or as cute as Miss Bird, floorplanner.com is a FAN-TAS-TIC site that allows you to create a floor plan for each room based on your exact measurements. It provides 2D and 3D views of your layouts and gives you a great sense of what it will look like when it all comes together. It offers a crazy amount of options for floor selection and counter tops, window types and garden plants, right down to a cowhide rug and even an egg in a frying pan placed on top of the stove. But be careful. This site is addictive. :) Happy Monday!
