So we're finally done with all the major remodeling.
I CANNOT believe it!!!
I thought this day would never come, well, I knew it would
but it didn't feel that way.
No more meltdowns, no more wanting to runaway, no more wondering "what in the world are we doing?!!"
So we'll start with the nastiest part of the house that we finally finished last week before all our family came.
First we'll show you the room that is now the guest suite
Dark green paint with specks of darker paint which we had to hand sand, every inch of this room, NO FUN!
Like the light fixture? 1980's
Here we had the walls primed and new carpet added but we used it as storage while remodeling other parts of the house.
Pale green walls with dark purple accents
Little sitting nook
We Had to replace the doors and windows in this house,
in fact for over a year neither of the sliding doors locked and were partially opened so when it stormed the water came in,
the smells were horrid, mold, mildew, dirt and dog.
Fireplace with fake stone work done terribly.
One of the stones was loose so I pulled on it and this is what we ended up doing. Fun at first until we got to the edges and it was exhausting, but worth the effort.
I have sconces to put up and we'd like to add a shelf/mantle.
So that was the guest suite, next you'll see the guest bath which was also a big project, again, so was everything else.
We called the tub "the big green monster" which grossed us out and we both agreed it had to go.
Another view of the 1990's bathroom
Then for a few months it became the storage room, we shoved everything in here and in the laundry room during the remodel.
Ugh, how awful
Due to finances the "big green monster" had to stay for now, so we tried to figure out how we can live with it and not be grossed out.
So we chose tiles, removed the lovely mirrors, creepy, and decided to tile.
Fell in love with the tiling, love the glass accent tiles, we tried to find something to compliment the green.
Purchased the curtains from Marshall's they go the full length.
I love the wall color, it's a green/blue, so calming and it looks so clean.
We are so excited on how the basement turned out. Guest come and they don't seem to want to leave, hmmm, that could be dangerous. My parents threaten that they may forget to go back home one day....:)
The next Before & After will be of the upstairs rooms.
Hope you enjoyed your tour.
