So the last few weeks have been very, very busy as we make lots of progress on the remodel. We’re getting to my favorite part, the decorating! We still have a lot of big things left – new windows, build out of the pantry opening in the kitchen, and installing all the interior doors and handles after Mike seals them, among other things. But, we see a light at the end of the tunnel!

Here is a after, and before, of the upstairs living area – which used to be a dining room with a wall separating it from the kitchen. Now it is all one open space. Sofa and coffeetable from Four Hands, accessories from Homegoods (my favorite newly discovered store!)
Here is an after and before of the laundry room. We painted the old cabinets and added new modern knobs, added a new door to the garage, all new trim and baseboards, new washer/dryer, new tile flooring, had the walls smoothed (plastered) and painted a very light gray, added a new fun light fixture, and lastly added some funky wallpaper. Whew, it made me tired just to type that!
One of the old bedrooms is now baby girls room. It is still a work in progress, as we haven’t set up the crib and bedding yet, but here is what we have so far. In this room, we painted the walls a neutral gray, added all new trim and baseboards, and put in new gray shag carpet.
This old bedroom, which has an attached bath, is now our guest bedroom. In this room we painted the walls and added all new trim, and put in new shag carpet.
Here is our upstairs living room as it is right now. We’re still working on it.
