five walls


Posted by Rebecca, October 26th, 2010

I finally have some real progress to report…yesterday our new floors were finished up!

As a recap, before…

And after!

Top of stairs before…

And after!

We obviously still have some finish work to do. That wood piece up there needs to be stained, the riser needs to be touched up with some paint, all of these nail holes need to be caulked and the new molding painted…

We are going to be very busy the next couple of weeks since we hope do this all on our own!

View from master before…

And after!!

Notice a theme here? My cats (especially Macky) are total photo bombers.  I think we’ve trained them to pose for the camera so that the minute I pull one out, they are all over me.  Many times during this whole photo session I suddenly saw Macky’s snout in my view finder…

And now for the elephant in the room, our new wall! It’s not done being spackled, nor is it painted, but it’s there!

Empty bedroom before…

And after!

Our room is still plenty large.  Our friend Chris did a great job making the wall look like it’s always been a part of the room.

Here’s the in-progress iPhone shot of the wall again…

So we still have two windows in the sitting room and plenty of space. Unfortunately, we have no light fixtures in the sitting room and I rarely get home before it’s dark, so the pictures of that part of the room are crappy. Oh and that part of the room is also dirty, since the drywall isn’t done and there are still some materials in there.  Hopefully I can snap some better pictures this weekend…

You can still see a little bit of the structure from the inside of the sitting room, but I’m sure we can come up with something to do with it!

Hey and there’s a glimpse of Darwin and our awful paper blinds!

Cue a panicked blurry Macky since he was closed out of a room for about 2 seconds.  If you’ve seen his carpet shredding skills, you know he does not like being left out…

So now we have to caulk and paint the hallway molding, touch up some scuffs, then do the same in the bedroom, paint the new french doors, paint aaaall of the walls, get some window treatments (finally) and figure out what the heck we’re doing with this space! But more on that later… 🙂
