Trim work!

All the walls are sheetrocked and mudded..... 

I have got to get me some of these stilts!

 And now the trim work is almost done!

 This looking into the Dining Room. See those blotches of paint colors...well we spent quite a few hours this past weekend debating over paint colors. Hopefully within the next week the interior will be primed and painted!

 Oh and we have an actual staircase!

Next up - Cabinets! Can't wait to see how they turned out!

I's been a while...

We have been soooo busy lately that I have not had the time nor energy to post but the house has taken major strides...

The biggest change is that we have sheetrock!

This is looking into the kitchen... try to imagine a farmhouse sink under those windows!

See that small little door? That is Muffin's pet door. We have big plans for it! 

Here is a shot of the front door...

 And this is the great room... Don't mind me, I am just fixing the window mullins...

The other major change is the house is painted!
It sure is white! 
The color is Benjamin Moore Swiss Coffee OC-45

What do you think?

We painted the windows and the mullins Sherwin Williams Porpoise. I will admit when they were doing it I was a bit scared...

Bathroom Inspiration

We are in the thick of it now! So much is happening with the house right now and I have to make decisions! Ahhh! If you know me, you know I am the most indecisive person on the face of this earth.

But... I am getting close. Here are my thoughts for the bathrooms:

The Powder Bathroom 

We are doing beadboard on the lower portion of the wall and I am going to do a stencil treatment on the top portions similar to the ones above.

This is the dresser that I have finally decided on. It only took me about 5 months!  Now I just need to buy it and put a sink in it, cut about 2 inches to make it a little shorter and find a faucet!  Piece of cake! ;)

This  is the tile I will probably use on the floor in the Powder Bathroom as well as the Jack-n-Jill bathrooms upstairs.

The Jack-n-Jill Bathroom: 

The upstairs bathrooms will have this vanity (similar to one from Potterybarn but at a much better price off of Ebay!) 


 But.... I am thinking that I will paint it a warm grey....

Classic Single Sink Console - Gray

For the tile on the floor I am going to use the white octagon tile but use black grout to warm it up like in these photos:


The fixtures will be chrome and I am thinking something like this for the vanity lights:

Now I just need to figure out the Master Bath!
