I like to draw things out on paper so I can get a feel for what I want...here's my initial drawing
Finished product, shows the heirloom cabinet my aunt made for my mother, and the last calligraphy art piece I did before my hands got too misshapen and sore from the arthritis.
Close up of my last art piece...some of you might recognize the scripture. It played an important part in the restoration of the LDS church in the 1800's, and holds a special place in my own life.
A fun little window I had added to both sides of the entryway.
Next is the Fireplace/TV/Shelves...I have had a lot of fun decorating this area!
