The last room I’ll show this week is the master bathroom – as it’s the only room left with a significant noticeable difference. The other rooms (living room, dining, den, etc.) are definitely different but it’s small differences that make it more comfortable – removing popcorn ceiling, installing hardwood floors, new trim, etc. So I’ll […]

I’m going to call this before and (almost) after the story of how money runs out and things don’t progress. Powder Room As mentioned yesterday, we made the kitchen smaller to allow space for a guest powder room. I’m a big believer in powder rooms as I don’t want to have to clean my bathroom […]
Let’s start this progress update with the kitchen. When we bought the house the kitchen looked like this: The original floorplan had an opening to the dining room as well as the back hallway. The kitchen was 16′ x 14′ but had a ton of unnecessary angles and cabinets that made it less functional. The […]
Happy Monday! (Maybe acting excited for Monday will make you feel the same way :)). So I thought a “great” idea for this week would be to spend the week giving a before and (almost) after tour of the house. Each day, I’ll showcase two rooms. We’ll show how they started on the day we […]
Camera is here! I’ll play around with it this weekend and hope to have some progress pics next week. Happy Friday!!

Sorry to report that I still haven’t received my new camera so there will be no in progress pictures today. I know many people do not like overhead lighting but I think every room could use a nice chandelier. It doesn’t have to function as the main lighting in the room as there obviously needs to […]
So excited that the test door came back perfect for the color of the kitchen cabinet doors! Now they can start painting and lacquering all the doors and install in a few weeks! Happy Friday!!
We’ve actually made progress in many of the room in the house and I now can start thinking more about the design process. I mentioned before that I really wanted a purple bedroom and was in the process of purchasing this purple grasscloth to get the room started. But two things happened before I was […]
One of the main reasons that I didn’t post much for the past few weeks is that our SLR camera was stolen. And while the iPhone camera is fairly solid when the lighting is good, when you live in a construction zone with perpetual bad lighting, the pictures just look a little blah. But […]
