I’m working on a little office upgrade. It’s a quaint little commercial space in downtown Southern Pines, NC and it needs a little TLC. We’ll give it some paint, upgrade the bathrooms, repair and re-coat the maple hardwoods and it will be open for biz.

gallery walls and vintage leather chairs,
think about bathing and getting ready in this bathroom every morning, what a freakin’ treat,

Those lower cabinets and patterned tile,
how I need to finish my Craigslist sideboard,
herringbone floors, brick, marble, ceramic who cares–I like it all
cozy, simple guest room
Barbara Bestor everything–for Betsy because she and Heffe will buy a dump on a beautiful lot with maybe a view of the Pacific and Ms. Bestor will help them turn it around,
