house progress

Just thought I'd give you a little update on how my house is going! We're still in the demolition stage, though the french doors (!!) were supposed to be put in today. We're trying to do this the smart (and cheap) way, so it's all moving a little slowly. Progress IS being made, though, so I'm content.


This wall has given us the most trouble. It had really thick wallpaper on it, and when we went to take that down there was paneling underneath. So we decided we'd rather just take the paneling down, which exposed the plaster, and showed  that both of the doors had originally been double doors. The plaster was falling apart, so we took it down and got our hands on some french doors. We're finally to the bottom layer... so it's time to build back up!


This is the blue room, which is now the spotty white room (yay primer!). When we took out the carpet we realized the floors underneath weren't that bad... except they hadn't put down a drop cloth when they painted. So it looks like that room is getting new floors, too. I'm going to try to keep that geometric flooring that's in the closet, though, just because its so quirky.


While we wait for a day where we can work on the big projects my boyfriend and I are cleaning up a bit in the kitchen. You can tell how much scrubbing is involved when you look at the before and after of the light fixtures...


So next is drywall, then paint, then floors. Then maybe I can move in. And maybe, as a reward to myself for all my hard work, I'll get this awesome blanket.
