We got the chance to sneak away in February to Lincoln City for a few days and boy was it nice. It's so odd to live somewhere for as long as we did in Lincoln City and come back to your home, in it's practically unchanged state. Sometimes we wish we could just pick it up and transport it to Portland...if only it were that easy! Anyway, during our stay I was able to get a few pictures of some areas that hadn't been photographed recently, if at all. I have added them to Our Abode in our Portfolio but here is a sneak peek of a few that I was able capture.
I love that sign. We bought it at an estate sale a couple of years ago along with another one. We originally had it on it's side in the corner acting as a pedestal. We decided it would look much better mounted front and center on the wall as a shelf...and yes it does.
Our upstairs hallway has hardly been photographed but it is actually very charming. At night with the lighting it looks like an art gallery. During the day though, it is filled with natural light from the surrounding bedrooms and we placed this large mirror at the end of it to reflect even more light. We custom made the frame out of salvaged, historic wood.
The landing at the top of the stairs has always been a sitting area but it never felt...right. So we designed and built this custom bench/bed and then clad it in old decking being thrown away from another project we were working on. What doesn't work for the deck anymore can be used for the interior of the house (after they are cleaned of course)!
