We took down a major wall, made a larger entrance to the kitchen, new lighting in the living room, and refinished and installed hardwoods into the kitchen. We painted the living room ourselves (we've yet to finish the ceiling- don't look), and we've yet to paint the kitchen. Mr. Spice just installed new lighting in the kitchen and I 'updated' the kitchen knobs with hammered black spray paint.
Without further ado. Here are the major updates:
Kitchen after: new floors, updated knobs, new stove, and no more boob light!! And no, I didn't have time to clear off the counters- keeping it real!
Progress- one room:
Even more progress: With furniture and baby proofed! Again, we've yet to hang anything on the walls.
From the other side of the room, and a good view of the colorful, but WAY too small Crate and Barrel Outlet rug:
Our second furniture purchase- new dining table from the Restoration Hardware Outlet, less than $1000 for the table and delivery:
And as a bonus, backyard before:
And backyard progress. New to us dining table bought from Sister Spice and lots of work on the 'lawn' - ready for seed once the weather cools down:
So that is the three month update. Progress feels so good. But we still have so much more to do. Other than possibly buying a new living room rug- we have decided that we are done with all major purchases until next year.
Up next: Painting the kitchen and entrance!!
