Here are some current “after” photos, and the “before” photos so you can see the progress that’s happening at the house. (Thanks for suggesting it, Vegas Princess!) It was the end of the night over here for me, and uploading some pics definitely seemed fun since I’ve been transcribing yet another interview all night. That article from Thursday and Friday? I already have to rewrite it since my boss didn’t like it. Yeah. Anyway, yes… house distraction? GOOD IDEA!
So here you go. First, here is the old kitchen–followed by the way the kitchen looks right now:
And NOW (please pardon the horrible blurriness):
We still need to get the sink and faucets installed, and they need to move the electric over so the stove can be slid into place. I also have to take that stupid door off that leads to the laundry room. And do the lighting retrofitting. But this gives you an idea of the new layout, the counters, cabinets and appliances… yay!
The view to the living room area–which you already saw, but here it is anyway:
The French doors:
The bathroom… I didn’t get one that showed the tile on the floor before, really, but I’ll post my “before” photo anyway because, well, why not?
Before (the same tile as that in the whole kitchen area and down the hallway was in here):
And now (still awaiting a sink, of course…but the toilet, vanity and tile is all new!):
(The color on the tile looks so much darker and richer in real life–it seems washed-out because of my awful camera. But this floor tile is my favorite thing so far. I love it! It’s also in the master bathroom, too.)
And here’s how the guest room (on the left) and my office (right) look from the hallway right now. New flooring!! There’s plastic down to protect the new carpet, which is a kind of dark coffee color with gray in it; and the laminate is the same cherry stuff that’s in the living room. I love this, too. The room seems so much brighter and bigger with this laminate in there!
So, there you have it. Obviously there’s still SO MUCH to be done. But it’s coming along!
And the big news is: I will be moving in this coming Saturday, October 3!!! FINALLY!!!
I’ll do the cosmetic stuff and decorate once I’m in there. It’ll be so much easier. I seriously can’t wait!
Thanks for looking at my house. 🙂
