We finally have internet. We finally have all our pictures onto our hard drive. You finally get a blog of before and after pictures (a lot of before and after pictures and inbetween pictures too!). Just remember - you asked for it. ;)
First, we start with the before.
First we walk in to a tiny little patch of tile (which would later be cursed at, kicked at, and smashed with hammers, crowbars and anything else at hand).
|Next we walk into the entry hallway.|
Then we come to our main/family room - where we
get a lovely view of the old carpets condition
|We then go up the stairs - where apparently|
Hulks child picked a fight with the walls.
|To the left we have out Master Bedroom.|
|And here is the Master Bathroom. You can see|
the awesome linoleum again with accompanying
moldly mildewy gold shower doors.
|Back to the Hall we make our way to the upstairs|
|Here is the shower/toilet mentioned above.|
|Then to the right of the forest critters bathroom|
we have the other two bedrooms. Here is the left bedroom.
|And the right bedroom - both rooms had|
some nice dings/holes in the walls that
needed patching (and some more forest critter stains).
And now comes the in between pictures! Let the demolition begin!
|This would be cement dust in our hair from taking the tiny|
patch of tile out.
|But we finally got it out and the floor smooth! :)|
|Finally got the unholy linoleum out - I swear this |
was worse then smoothing the cement down where
the old tile was.
Then I tore up the grossandstinkyandcoveredinforestcritterhairandwhoknowswhatelse carpet.
Then it was time for the paint! Luckily we had many helpers - thank you again for all of you that came and lent a hand or brought us food or cheered us on (my cute little 4 month old niece was particularly good at this).
|Braedon set up all the doors in the garage and |
sprayed them giving him a lovely hair frosting
and nose pore cleansing. ;)
|I think Braedon might have been losing his marbles at this point - or he just really likes to impersonate tape monsters.|
Next up was tiling! My wonderful parents worked so hard to help us get our tile in! They seriously are machines and I would have broken down and started crying with out them.
|We treated them to good old Little Ceasers, Hot and Ready. |
(Or as Braedon likes to call it "Little Squeezers, Hot and Sweaty")
Don't worry - we took them out to real food as well. :)
|This is the amount of grout we had left after we finished |
the tile - talk about cutting it close.
Now, ladies and gentilemen, the pictures you've been waiting for!
|My Front Door!! I painted it red. Cause I can. |
And I had a dream about having a red door.
And I wanted one. So I painted it red.
The end. :)
|Not sure why I don't have a better picture of this bathroom...|
|Stairs are now hulk proofed.|
|I love my dorky husband and I love my red wall. :)|
|Gross Gold thing is gone! (Don't mind the toilet in|
the tub - it has since found it's rightly home).
|No more gross critter carpet by the sink!|
|The Left Bedroom: AKA the Office.|
|The Right Bedroom: AKA The Spare Bedroom|
|Don't mind the slightly skewed closet doors - we haven't put the runners down yet.|
|Then our house looked a little something like this - full of boxes...|
|See! I really do have a kitchen! Not sure why we didn't have|
any pictures until now...
|Me being humoring Braedon in his picture taking glory.|
|This was a pain to paint. Just sayin.|
So there you have it (and probably more then you really wanted).
All in all - we are very happy with our new home. :)
