2010 Remodel Fest - Master Bedroom

Now my blog is all caught up with the renovations we have done. Now we just need to keep on working and get this project done! Our house is getting measured for carpet this week! I'm so excited!

Anyways, here is our bedroom. Super messy cause we had already started renovating and it was too hard to do that and keep up with cleaning. The large object being covered by a blanket is our new tv before arriving at it's new home in our living room.

After several attempts of finding the perfect green... is our bedroom now! LOVE it! But we like the green so much we are thinking of painting one more wall...or maybe all four. What do you think??

2010 Remodel Fest - Spare Room

Here's the spare room upstairs. I was lazy and took pictures of the room messy. I can tell, from the stuff on the bed, that we were putting up the new doors at this time.

So while I was painting this room, the closet specifically, I had my hair pulled up and out of the way. Well I leaned back one time, putting my hair right into wet paint. Then the roller hit the wall when I was climbing up the step ladder and rolled across the top of my hair. Two weeks later I'm still finding paint in my hair.

And after painting! To get the decorations up off the floor, I put the decorations right back into the same places. Later, when I have time to be crafty, I will decorate differently. Oh the ideas I have! :)
The pictures don't do justice. The coral color looks amazing with the paint color! Another room - DONE!

2010 Remodel Fest - Hallway

Brace yourselves people. I think this hallway is the BIGGEST change in the entire house. But as I was finding pictures to download, I realized I only focused on taking pictures of the doors before the renovation. So I don't have any really good ones showing the walls. But then I looked at the pictures together and you can TOTALLY see the change. So here are a few views of the ugly hallway before...

And after... AMAZING!!!

Who knew one could LOVE their hallway? I didn't. But I sure LOVE my hallway! Although based on size, I'm not sure its a hallway, maybe more of a landing. But whatever it's correct term, I thinking of moving something soft and comfy in there and cuddling up with a good book. I LOVE renovating!!! :)

2010 Remodel Fest - Kitchen (part one)

Okay - I totally took these pictures when the kitchen was a complete mess. But isn't that how they do it when they make over a person? Usually I'm really good at keeping the counter clean, but I haven't been so good since this remodel project started.

Our kitchen table - also a mess. I made those curtains quite awhile ago and am still proud of the fact that the stripes line up.

TAH-DA!! It really doesn't look all at different but just wait until that door is a beautiful new white one. Really, all we did was paint and clean it up.

See the beautiful hutch my Grandparents gave me? In my tiny kitchen, I love all the extra storage it gives me.
And I made a new sheer curtains so we can finally open the curtains and let in the light. If we did that before, anyone walking by could look right in and I didn't like that. I just love it! There is just something about painting the walls, especially a color that you love.

This is only part one because I still have to put up the tile back splash on the other side. It's painted but not worth posting until the back splash is done. So stay tuned!

2010 Remodel Fest - Living Room

The 2010 remodel fest continues. I've just been too tired to post all the pictures. But here is the living room. I absolutely LOVE it! The yellow makes me so happy. When I sit in there and the sun shines on the walls, it's my favorite time of the day. I really wanted the darker yellow when I painted the samples on the wall. But I was worried it would be too dark. So I bought one can and planned on painting one wall. But as more and more of the wall got painted, the more I LOVED it. And Brian did too! Bonus! So dark it was. :)

It's not 100% done, I'll explain as you look at the pictures.
Here is the living room before...

And the entertainment center before (don't worry - it has two doors. The second one was hidden behind the baskets.)

And NOW...
The new yellow walls! Don't you LOVE it?? (okay I know the cats beds are an eye sore but come on! Our house it teeny and there is no where else to put them.)

And thanks to IKEA, our new entertainment center and, Brian's favorite, our new tv! The book shelves will have doors from the middle to the floor but they are on back order until JUNE! I don't think I can wait that long.

We still have to get a new outside door (goodbye green door) and the stairs will be carpeted once all the painting is done (goodbye green stairs) but I'll post pictures when that is done.

Stay tuned for more pictures another day!
