So, let's see a small update on what we've done! The ceilings have been scraped of the popcorn, re textured/painted, the main area has been repainted, a small part of the kitchen has been demoed, all the floors have been removed (there were FIVE different types of flooring in this house), the garage door and shutters have been repainted, and we landscaped the front. It looks so awesome and all of our neighbors are so happy we are fixing it up. ;)
So before, the green paint on the house was extremely faded and worn looking. I repainted the door and shutters with a Minwax Gel Stain. It was so easy and I love the way it turned out. It looks like wood and really makes the house pop. We also cut back the trees so you can see the front more.
If you look at the before photo, you can see the three big green bushes in the front. They were not pretty and blocked the porch, so my stepmom and I went to the local nursery and got these gorgeous new plants!
fMy dad and her were here for a long weekend and they helped us so much with the house!
They also gave us a date too! We went to a local breakfast place because ALL i ever want is breakfast food. For real, I am OBSESSED this pregnancy. Biscuits, sausage, eggs... YUM. Oh and chocolate milk. Gotta have a glass every single morning.
So this is before the flooring was all taken out..look how horribly messy. Gives me a headache just looking at it. We also removed the two foot "head blocker" as I call it, above the bar area. It looks so much better without it and opens up the kitchen a ton.
Will i survive these next few weeks? Lots to do, lots to do, but I cannot wait to see it all done. My new kitchen cabinets should be here next week. FINGERS ARE CROSSED.
