I thought I'd take a momentary break from IVF updates to give you an update on our remodel progress.
Ignore the brown lawn and look at the fact that we have columns and all we're waiting on outside is a pergola on the side porch and landscaping.
Oh, and the columns haven't been painted yet.
LOVE my lighting on the front porch from Schoolhouse Electric. The only problem is they're only damp-rated, so we could only use them underneath our porches.
Greg taking a gander into the office/scrapbook room. We changed the color blue from our original brighter color and I'm glad we did. This is much better!
And, my hardware. Ahhhhh...Greg says it's growing on him but he doesn't really like it.
More progress on the mud-room bath.
I never would have thought it would be so much trouble to use pavers inside, but apparently it was.
Thankfully, the outcome is pretty cool.
The downstairs floor is ready to be stained and sanded on Monday.
Anyone want to guess why one board is turned the wrong direction?
Upstairs to the guest bedroom where Mom and Dad will stay while completing their house. This room has another fixture from Schoolhouse Electric.
The majority of our lighting came from there, and I love how you buy the fixture and shades separately. While looking for lighting, I found that I liked the shades, but didn't like the fixture, or vice versa. So, Schoolhouse was a perfect solution for us.
The upstairs hall bath.
The TV room upstairs. We'll have a game table by the windows and a couch/TV where I'm standing to take the photos.
This fixture came from Pottery Barn. We'll put an Edison bulb in it once we move in and lower the chain, but for now, it's a hazard and that bulb is too expensive to waste.
My railing is up and I feel so much safer walking around upstairs now.
And, last my light fixtures in two of the bedrooms upstairs. These were cheapies from Lowe's and actually a little small for the rooms, so we'll have to have good lamps.
Estimated move-in date is 3 weeks.
