Renovation Update


Here's some before and mid-renovation pics. I just can't wait to post the progress until it's all done, so here it is mid-way.

We have these colors, Laura Ashley Home - Deep Cowslip 4 (yellow) and Summer Field (green), in our kitchen in the 'burbs.

(Remember, you can click on the pictures to see them larger.)

The Booth Area

The Kitchen

 The Bathroom is the only green room.

 The Bedroom

The Front Seating Area

This is the curtain that started it all. My husband doesn't really care for it, but I have a vision. ;-)

I am loving it!  The horrible 90s upholstery even looks better! It will still be changed, just as soon as I learn how to do upholstery from YouTube. ;-)

Even the boys said they loved it.  Now, that's one for the record books.  Hopefully, my husband will agree once he sees it...



  1. you were a busy beaver last night!! Looks great! Did you take the mattress out or just paint around it? How do you get a mattress that big out of there?

  2. The mattress is out and will be GONE! NASTY! It gave me the heebee geebees everytime I was near it, so it's gotta go! And yeah, those pictures were BEFORE doing any more work last night!

  3. You both are so ambitious. We get to do siding and maybe some windows this spring. Woo hoo! NOT.

  4. Siding...that needs to be done here too. Are you guys doing it yourselves?

  5. If you mean "Will I be watching Brad, while he does it?" then yes, we will be doing it ourselves.
