8.12.2021 Remodeling Update

 Hi Everyone!  Well the remodeling is finally winding down.  I will show you some photos of what has been happening since the last update!

The tub in the guest room was awful!  It was a fiberglass tub/shower combo but it was a weird blue, yes you heard me blue!  The toilet was yellow with a white seat, the sinks were yellowish and were so old, the vanity had also seen better days.  The linen closet was filthy dirty!  Here are some photos:

This is the bathroom completely redone.  I think I am going to paint the mirror white and distress it a little.  Just love it!  I also have put the outlet covers and switch plates on.

This was the old tub/shower combo.  Don't you love that blue-NOT!!

Tada!!  All new and fresh!  I decided to save a little money and had the fiberglass recoated.  It is guaranteed for 10 years.  The plumbing fixtures were missing in the photo but since then my contractor has put the new ones on.  So much better!!

Last week I painted from Thursday all the way through Sunday.  I only ate and slept and the other hours I was painting.  I painted the kitchen, 1/2 bath, area outside the bath and the breakfast room/Butler's Panry area a lovely gray (same as my Master Bedroom).  It is Valspar's Polar Star.  Such a lovely color gray.  Ignore the flooring in the photos, they hadn't put the engineered hardwood down at this point.

This was the existing pantry.  It was filthy dirty-food and bugs everywhere!  I didn't even want to go in there.  I cleaned and cleaned and then painted.  It looks like a whole new pantry!!  Love it!

Today the engineered hardwood floors were installed!!  Tomorrow carpeting will be installed upstairs.  It has been a long few months but it is finally getting there!!

This is the butler's pantry/breakfast room area.

The half bath and area outside the bath.

This is part of the kitchen.

I painted all the bedroom closets over the weekend also.  That would be guest room #1 and 2's walk-in closet, the hallway storage closet, the Master walk-in closet and then the Master regular closet.  I only have 2 photos of the 2 guest room closets so far.  

Front Guest Room Walk-in Closet

Back Guest Room Walk-in Closet.  This closet had tons of BB's from an old BB gun all over the shelves and floor.  There was also a very long mathematical equation written in red all over the back wall.  I think they both look so much better now and will look better tomorrow after they are carpeted!!

I am so glad this has been winding down, but I really do love planning and orchestrating my plans!!

I hope you all enjoyed the tour!  Have a wonderful evening!



Ring of Kerry, Ireland
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.

Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
