holiday break has lead to decisions, decisions

This summer I replaced the hermitage, micro-forest and my mini-meadow that sat at the edge of the Sam Houston National Forest for PhD studies, a 1929 cottage and lots of renovations. I am trying to take it back to at least feel retro. I am stuck on the floor. Trust me the green makes since for this house. Having peel many a door frame back to wood, green was the original color and is the current color of the exterior. Sigh.

The light green tile are a smudge darker and with a hint of olive than what appears in photos
Original plaster walls match the light green tile.
Ha. This room is two colors–dark green and light green like the tiles
Crazy pants, but the previous owners painted almost every room a different color. The bedroom is maroon and yellow. It is starting to grow on me. The turquoise dining room will definitely have to be given a new color.
The study is reddish maroon and gray. Hmmm.
The 85 year old kitchen cabs are cool but needed a new face, so I built new fronts and sanded the structure down to wood.
I saved the original hardware and will re-attach the doors with them.
This summer while school was out, the neighbors really wanted to help.They got power tool lessons. Sad day, they moved :(
There were somethings I couldn’t do that had to be done. So I hired out.
Hopefully by the end of my PhD
I will have this baby spruced up and retro hip.
I probably should be making art, but renovations are taking priority currently. I do ponder my balls and consider my next art move for the coming summer.
