Cream of Chicken Soup, the house – a retro — 9 Comments

  1. Oh those before and after pics are just amazing !! JUST AMAZING !! What a job you have done – I love it all !!

  2. Katie, if I recall correctly, you were moving southward about the time we were planning our last trip to the Lot Valley. I cannot believe that was more than five years ago already. You got more accomplished than I did in those 5.5 years.

    What you did to that chicken soup is something I would probably do – if I thought about it – because I hate to waste things. I had to save some boeuf burgundy in January, and I am tempted to make a blog post out of it but I have no photo. Anyway, I think you would appreciate it.

  3. Holy Cats! What an amazing transformation when you see it all at once like that! You have so much skill and so much downright patience!! You have turned a (literally) cow byre into a castle! Kudos!

  4. What a beautiful transformation! I’m jealous. We’ve been debating an 1860 house but after careful consideration and a lot of research, have decided to pass. Lovely property, but we’d be overbuilding by at least $150K and I won’t do that again. So, I’ll just live vicariously through your redo! 🙂

  5. I do love the way the kitchen cabinets turned out!
    Even though I followed the progress, it’s still somehow more impressive to see it as a retro. Fabulous now.

  6. Oh Katie this is beyond amazing, so much work done and so much love (and sweat:-D) put into it. I just love how inviting it looks.

  7. Kate, thanks – I’ll tell mon mari….

    Mimi, it was the same time because I was thinking of trying to get to Cahors to meet you… But we were kind of busy LOL I appreciate anything based on beef burgundy….

    Zoomie, mon mari did the work. I supervised 😉 I’ll pass on the kind words

    Christine, it was good soup. I need to organize all these photos sometime…. Technology came do weird things.

    nightsmusic, that is always a very real risk. Restoration can be expensive, esp. if you have to hire the labor, We didn’t.

    Tanna, and so close to being done!

    Thanks, Babe…. ‘-))
