Ch ch ch changes!

We (with the approval of our landlords) have begun a few household renovations.
I'm beyond excited to rid ourselves of the light pink bathroom tiles!








TERRIBLE!!!! Everything about this bathroom is the stuff my nightmares are made of. We are updating everything in here.

Next: our living room had this akward add-on open closet that we demolished yesterday.


Before



During



After
We will be fixing and painting the ceiling, repairing the walls, baseboards and molding.
Our living room will be so much bigger without this closet!!
Bryan found several layers of vinyl tile and wallpaper! Yikes!









Next: we removed the sliding barn door closet door. We never use it. It doesn't work well. We can't close it when people are over because it would close off the bathroom.



We had a strange piece of plywood tacked to our front door that Bryan pried off. I'm half way done removing the 14 layers of paint so we can refinish it.



And the final thing will be repairing our kitchen ceiling. It's cracked and gross and the light fixture needs to be updated.



Whew! That was our Sunday afternoon. We pretty much decided what we wanted to change over brunch, got approval, and did everything else in the afternoon!

We hope to be done in two weeks! I'll keep you updated!

  1. Are you snowed in? And is this why you are finding time to do all this? Wow what a lot to undertake. But now let me think_ I am 84 and you are both 20 something? Age meanes little to me anymore. More power to you both. I think you are both great. MaMaw
