Moving and Shaking

Finally, things are coming together! Our windows are going in today, as is our HVAC unit. Our main floor bathroom should also be finished later this week and carpet is going down on Friday.

We have yet to pick out our hardwood for the rest of the main floor. We plan to do that on Thursday. Hopefully, we'll begin moving our bedroom furniture in this weekend. Pictures to follow! :)

Bathroom #1 Remodel - Part 1

Someday I hope to have the bathroom of my dreams, but until then a nice, clean bathroom will have to do. I knew we would have to completely gut the upstairs bathroom. It's the only bathroom on the main floor. (No master. Insert whiny face here.)  In reality, the bathroom is about the same size, if not a little bigger, than the bathrooms in our other house, and that's not saying much. However, it was in horrible, horrible shape.


Kitchen Cabinet Paint Colors: Part 1

As much as I'd love to have all new kitchen cabinets installed, it's not going to happen. At first, I thought I may buy cabinet doors only. Our cabinets are solid wood and are still in great shape, so why not just update them a little, right? Well, who knew cabinet doors were so pricey? (**sighing in defeat**)

We do have a flea market-esque store here in town called The Peddler's Mall that carries cabinets, doors, trim, etc. I'm keeping my eyes open for what I want because hopefully, at some point, I can find a complete set. It just might take a while.

Until then, we paint.


This Stuff Saved the Day

First, let me say this is NOT a sponsored post. However, I am highly recommending the following product to anyone remodeling an old house, or any house that has pets.

The past few years, my husband allowed our renters to have pets. I say "my husband" because I did not approve, but it's hard to turn down money in your pocket. Our last renters were university students in the vet program. They seriously had every animal under the sun in our house. Dogs, cats, rabbits, and even lab rats.



Our house is surrounded by trees. A few months ago one of the larger trees was uprooted during a storm. Had it fallen forward instead of sideways, it would have crushed the house. Thankfully, that didn't happen. Here's a peek at our back yard now that the trees have been cut. I wish I had taken a landscape shot, but I completely forgot I could do that with my phone. I may come back later and update once the trees have been removed.
