I can not begin to tell you how excited I was, when Stefanie over at Brooklyn Limestone agreed to letting me guest post on her blog. I have followed her blog for quite some time and I just love all her ideas. Her remodeled Limestone is just breathtaking. She just started a kitchen remodel, so you know I will be glued to her blog to see how it all comes together.

You can find my guest post at Brooklyn Limestone here.

Read all about the fireplace and and entertainment center - more photos - I also added a couple of new ones at the end.

For the rest of our house, please go to Home Tour. Our home tour page includes a trip down memory lane to the house we built in the 90s. 40 before and after pictures and I reveal which styles I think still hold up today and that I would do again in a heartbeat.

Upcoming reveals for July and August will be the patio lounge area and the kitchen view area.

We also slowly started tackling our master bedroom and master bathroom and we are building something in the garage. More to come on that.

If you love desserts, then this week is dessert week here on Shift Ctrl Art. 3 desserts coming up that are sure to please the crowds - any crowd - made from the same egg base.

I am on Bloglovin and Facebook, and between posts on Instagram and Twitter.

I am so glad you are here!
