Progress-Photo Diary of a House Remodel Entry #4

The painters FINALLY finished on Monday. And Joel has been busy sanding the floors all weekend and yesterday. What a difference those two things make. Even without being finished, the floors look great, and the paint really cleans up the joint. It is actually looking like we might be able to live in it sometime in the future...it looks so much more livable than it did here.

Kitchen looking into the family room...those white boards on the floor are the baseboards that will go up after the floors are done.
Kitchen with a view to the backyardEntryway...look! No more brown front door! No more streaks on the floor! No more ugly brown beam! (That door to the right is the office)
Family room looking into the kitchenFamily room...no more gray fireplaceThere are two rooms in the house that aren't khaki. Can you guess whose they are?
I don't think I'll be able to live with the pink or the blue for 20 years, but that's the beauty of paint. When the kids are going through their black/red/purple/rainbow stripes phase, we can just change it.

Still to do...

Starting tomorrow: oiling and staining the floors

This weekend: beginning to lay the tile in the kitchen
And I really should take a picture of my garage filled with Ikea cabinets waiting to be assembled. That's a sight.

Yay, it's coming together, huh? I like the blue and the pink, even if the girlies grow out of it sooner or later. :)

It looks great. I can't wait to see it with finished floors. And IKEA cabinets? I'm jealous!
