Well. I've finally got some after pictures to show you of the cabin
living/dining area. Look here to see the before and how
this makeover got started. 
First up is the fireplace wall.
The brick are really old so I didn't want to do anything to them.
As you can see my dad has a checkerboard table
(that he made) ready for anyone to play.

I had a couch that I had been using on my back porch
and I thought it would look great in the cabin.
After all he needs somewhere to recline. Right?
Above the couch is a collection of pictures about the cabin.
We'll add more as we find more.

This is the front side of the cabin.
He has his tv and rocking chair.
He made the Grandfather clock many years ago.

This is just a close up of the t v corner.
He made the tv stand and the hanging corner cabinet.

In this corner is an old peddle sewing machine
that was my grandmothers.

This is just a closer look at the fireplace.

Here we are at the dining room side.
This table was the old farm table of my great grandmother.

Here's a little closer look.

This is the other side by the front door.
A wash stand that my dad made
and some old hornets nest.
Plus an empty clock case that my dad made.

In this corner I've fixed an area of some items for sale.
Years ago we use to sell crafts from the cabin.
And these are a few of the leftovers.
Thought I'd display them in one place.

This is looking toward the kitchen door.

Here you can see the stair ladder to the upstairs.
Also notice I didn't paint the wall at the dining area.
I thought it would make a good feature wall.
None of these logs had been painted originally.
If you notice the curtains at the windows here and on the front window
they are recycled from the nursery I had with my first daughter 
some 30 plus years ago.
They were also used in my granddaughters bedroom.

This is looking toward the front door.

This is a close up of the pig on the dining room table.
My dad made that a long time ago.
I think it's cute.

Please stay tuned for part 3 - the kitchen.

And probably part 4 - the front porch.

Is anything too difficult for me?"

  3. I like the texture that comes through with the addition of adding white. I've always wanted to live in a log house I love the simplicity. This is very nice.

  4. Your dad was quite crafty with wood... wasn't he?
    I almost expected to see the "Crafts sold Here" signs from your previous post over the fireplace or something. Perhaps on the porch instead? I love it!
