Reno Update

For those of you who have been asking, here is our current status on our reno project.

Things Completed:

Removed the popcorn ceiling in the dining room
Tiled the backsplash in the kitchen
Installed our new countertops
Painted the dining room
Removed the ever tacky wall paper from the breakfast nook
Bought fabric for curtains in the kitchen (Scott has a new calling)
Found curtains and shades for dining room
Bought new hardwood for the dining room
Installed new iron wrought chandelier in dining room

Things Currently Being Worked On:

Removing the hardwood from the dining room
Installing hardwood once removed (go Scott!)
Picking out paint samples for nook and kitchen
Looking up a wall texture guy to go over walls in nook where wall paper was

Things Still Yet to Do:

Pick out new hardware
Hang curtains
Complete curtains
Paint kitchen and nook
Scrape popcorn off kitchen ceiling
Create a "message center" in our nook (I have the COOLEST idea for that by the way!!!)
Hang new blinds in dining room
Pick out new trim
Buff out painting "ooops"
Find guy to texture our walls in nook to match walls in the rest of the house!


So you see we are making progress. It's been touch and go, especially with Scott being home and being dad and hubby, but also still being the "random" guy at the squadron. Need something done? Call Kilgore! LOL

We have been taking pictures along the way but my laptop died and Scott has a Mac and I frankly don't care to learn how to transfer my pics onto this thing! So....you will all have to wait!

Have a great weekend !!!

Sounds like you have it all together. I thought you had already taken the popcorn off of the kitchen ceiling. That will not be a fun job with counters and cupboards to contend with.

I can hardly wait to see pictures. Can't we even have a sneak peak???????

Whoohoo! Now I know who to call when we decide to put in hardwood floors! I can't wait to see it. I'll bet it will look awesome when complete!

So, what's the completion date on your projects?? If you REFUSE to share any "in progress" pictures, you better at least have an idea of when we can expect to see "finished product" pictures!!! No fair!!

Our hope is to have a lot of it done before Anna and the boys come NEXT WEEK!

As for pictures, nope, not yet!
