Before & After - The Renovations

"Renovations" is a bit of an overstatement. Even though it was just some minor paint updates, wallpaper removal and a full re-carpet, for the two weeks it was going on, it felt like a major ordeal. But we survived.

The two biggest changes, aside from the carpet, are the master bath and the kitchen.

The Bathroom



I can't explain what could possibly have been behind the hideous wallpaper, but we never got around to changing it, despite my initial intentions. The new color was a bit startling at first, but I really like it.

The Kitchen


I also cannot explain why they painted the crown molding red, but they did. Someone offered feng shui as a possibility, but who knows?? Another thing we planned on changing, but didn't. Looks so much better now. Of course, we're pretending that we meant for the crown molding to be bright white instead of matching the cabinets...

Overall, we're really pleased with the way things turned out, even if it hasn't been the most fun I've ever hard.

Now, we cross our fingers.....
