I admit that I get a lot of satisfaction when I design a room and implement the plan to flawless perfection. When I first look at a room, the idea that pops in my mind is this: What color am I going to paint it? Honestly, the idea of paneling for the walls never enters the arena. Don’t even get me started on wallpapering; that’s a whole different evil monster.
In my opinion, the fundamental idea of paneling is that it can be used to cover areas that are difficult to paint/wallpaper or where you need something that can be put up quickly. As a person that has spent many a year in rental units, I have seen paneling put up as a way to cover nasty wallpaper, holes in the wall and more.
Although it looks similar to the log cabin of my childhood this one is actually located in Blowing Rock, North Carolina.
My two sisters and I were excited about the first Thanksgiving at our own home after spending 4 years in a nearby orphanage following our mother’s death. We had a fire going in the fireplace in the log cabin and elder Sister Wilma was busy preparing dinner and shouting orders for us to help.
We couldn’t afford a turkey but the fattest chicken in the barnyard and a smoked ham , sweet potatoes , green beans, corn and fluffy buttermilk biscuits made a “gracious ” plenty as we say in the deep South.
Wet bars are becoming a standard part of modern housing and are no longer banished to the basement with the foosball table and pictures of dogs playing poker. They’re popping up in the kitchen and occasionally even the living room.
The main difference between a wet bar and a dry bar is that a wet bar has water hookup and a sink apparatus, so you can wash your glasses. It’s basically a mini kitchenette with a boatload of booze. There isn’t a red-blooded man on the planet who hasn’t at least thought about putting a bar in his home.
Bars were once thought of as the man’s haven, where he and the buddies would congregate and drink beer after beer. But with entertaining groups becoming more popular, they are leaving the basement and entering the main home.
