Well, this is a story that never has an ending.
We are in the middle of our KITCHEN REMODEL at the moment…please go see that as well.
(We are doing it all.)
Our 70’s home – coming in to the new millennium.
It started like this…I went away to Dallas for a convention in the Fall of 2008.
Apparently, my hubby was bored and needed a project.
He never liked the wall between our bedroom and the office. So, the bricks started to come off.
He had helpers.
They learned how to tear down walls.
Even the princesses.
I think they enjoyed themselves.
Now for the bedroom side…
We don’t let them cut their own meat but…
Then, an accident occurs…makes me glad I’m in Dallas.
Thankfully, no injuries.
Well, the window…but he was leaving anyway.
Okay, glass is cleared up. Big hole in wall.
Kids are so proud of themselves.
Curtains always makes things seem right.
Now for stage 2: (Spring)We took off the ugly wood paneling. And started to add Sheetrock in some places.We had to take out the huge windows that had no seals and were anything but energy efficient.We usually don’t encourage our sons to hit windows with hammers…
We also had to take off the ugly siding and add nice siding.The black paper is a weather barrier and itSTINKS!!!See my hubby’s socks (Yeah, he probably won’t appreciate this picture). They mean he either – just got off work and the whites were not clean (like that would ever happen – hehe) or he couldn’t wait to work on the room. Hmmm….
Window is in…
From this side…he looks like a peeping Tom.
Again, our Princess Helper…
We need to take out these windows…again, not energy efficient.
This had to be done with extreme caution…
Because under the window…
Well, that is how I remember it.
The gem (Amaryllis) bloomed like the next week.
Then we both tape and floated. I will say, this was not my favorite part. My least favorite was the SANDING! Oh, the dust!!!!
Here is his brush…
Here is his brush working…
I really liked this part. It just almost smelled done.
Like peace and tranquility. Or really just our room completed. Which is peace in my book.
I painted it while hubby was at work. He was surprised. A good surprise.
Remember the lights, aren’t they fantastic?
We are so happy!
(Well, except for the trim, wall decor and curtains.)
