|Holiday Fun 2011|
Eh. I've had better.
And let's just leave it at that.
|Kitchen - Before|
|Kitchen - before|
|Kitchen - After (not completely done)|
|Kitchen - after|
|Master bathroom - before|
Lights that used to hang in their master bathroom, have been spray painted and given a new life in the office.
|office - after with the old vanity lights|
The master bathroom was almost unrecognizable to them after the renovation.
|Master bath - after (and not complete yet)|
No more carpet in the bathroom. New vanities, tub, and walk-in shower.
|Macy's bedroom vanity - before|
And that fancy bedroom vanity upstairs? Gone. They were disappointed. I kind of was too. It was a battle I lost to Jace....he won a walk-in shower....which I kind of love too.
|Macy's vanity - after|
Painted furniture and mirror was a poor substitute.
|loft - after (furniture less)|
They wondered how and why the beams were white. I think this was the biggest blow. White beams.
They never got past the beams to tell me how they loved the new light fixture in the loft.
|My dining room - a work in progress. It's really killing me, this room.|
Their last comment was, "Well, maybe when you get your artwork on the walls." Their comments made me chuckle and made me realize just how much more work we have to do. Seeing my house through eyes that once knew this house in all its glory humbled me a bit. We probably bit off more than we can chew with this one but this wouldn't be the 1st time the Baums swam in that pool.
I told Jace about the tour later that night in bed. He asked if I thought they would have been more impressed, had they known our remodeling budget would have fit in Ezra's piggy bank?
I said, "Naw, I don't think so."
Jim....Dixie.....we love you and your old, beloved house. You are invited back for another tour.
In 10 years.
p.s. Know that it is killing me to post after pictures that aren't quite done or perfect. One day.
