Starting to come back together!

So stuff is happening!  So exciting!

Here's my bedroom.  It was purple before.  This makes me much happier!

Master bath with drywall in place!

This will be my craft room.  Sweet!

Here's the guest bedroom.  It's actually pink.  Maybe a little pinker than I expected!  LOL

Guest bath.  Tub and drywall in place!

This is the den.  Not painted yet, but French doors in place. 
Pretty, eh?

Kitchen-ish.  Not a whole lotta change, but the cabinet header is in place.  Still need to pick flooring and finalize paint color here.  (check out the can lights - we haz illumination!)

Living room painted.  I love how this color looks!  So warm and inviting.  The original white (in DR) is so cold that it looks blue in comparison!

Wainscotting color in teeny swatch. I think it will be nice.  Another shot contrasting the cold white of the original paint with the new paint.

Just got the price for the kitchen countertop that I wanted - 4K.  Ummm No.  Back to the drawing board!

Demolition under way

Just a couple of snaps of the demolition activities.

Taking out that peninsula has made the kitchen feel way bigger.  Still deciding if I want an island there or not.

Guest bath - just about doubled in size!  Holy cats!

New House!

I am downsizing and just bought a cute little 50's rancher near Braddock Heights.  It's a little rough - here are a few before shots!

Walk in the front door to faux slate.  It's hardwood underneath, so it will probably get a nice entry rug and call it good.

This is the living room & dining room with a glimpse of the kitchen.  Hardwoods in pretty good shape here.

Kitchen - a little rough, eh?  I think I am keeping the colors though.  I like them!

More kitchen, the peninsula goes.

And looking from the outside in - and yes, on the right is another fireplace!  I have two!

Guest bath.  What can be said?  The sink and shower are two little alcoves off to the right behind the door.  Teeny.  This will change.

Master Bath.  Rougher than it looks in this picture.  Sadly, losing the cool blue vintage tile, but it will be purty when complete. 

Bedrooms are in okay shape - need floors done and painting, but all good.
