Man, I just can’t seem to get these renovation updates done on time, but here’s the latest! The floors are done, and we are in looooove. Ripping out the floor in the kitchen and dining area and re-framing was the best idea ever – now instead of that weird ridge, it’s a continuous floor throughout.
The color of the floors turned out exactly as we had hoped. So happy.
Hello, open and airy!
The painters arrive this morning and will start prepping and painting the entire house which should take the next week or two. (After creating a trillion custom whites, we went with Dunn Edwards “White.” Typical.) The kitchen will be installed shortly after, and then DRUMROLL, we will move in. Let’s just keep our fingers crossed because we are out of our current home by December 1st regardless. (I can’t believe we are moving in 3 weeks! ACK! Packing? What’s packing? Do you remember how efficient I was at packing for the last move?)
Also, here are some photos of the bedrooms – you know, just in case you were wondering what 40-year-old carpet looks like.
The master bedroom.
Wito’s room. (Such a great room.)
Wita’s room. (Her view ain’t too shabby, either. Also, perfect window for sneaking out? Noted.)
We also replaced the kids’ bathroom floor because, well, it was fairly new, but heinous. (Obviously, the walls and casing have yet to be painted.)
All in all, we are on schedule. D and I are off to pick out material for the formal living room fireplace this morning.
We’re thinking grey marble with white veining to complement the white Calacatta marble in the kitchen, and frankly, I can’t think of a better way to spend my anniversary.
(HAPPY ANNIVERSARY, D! 8 years, baby!)
I’ll try to post one more update before move-in, but we are almost there, you all. SO EXCITING.
