House Remodel Update #3

It's time for the weekly segment of "see how much of a disaster zone the Schrader house still appears to be in!" Fortunately this week we have moved away from the piles of dust and drywall phase to the "it's actually starting to resemble a house again" stage. People including my husband and I could not be more thrilled about this fact. Today was a big day in the remodel phase as the kitchen installation started. If there was ever a need for a red salsa dancer emoticon to be inserted anywhere this would be it. I am loving [l-o-v-i-n-g] how it is coming together so we will get to that goodness in a second. For now, lets start with the basics. Like a hallway.

Here is what the hallway looked like last time we talked. And on the left is what the hallway looks like today. A slight difference you may say. 


This is now our entry light instead of that dangling gold thing you see up above. It's nice because now you don't get smacked in the face every time you walk through the front door. Little changes equal less bruises.


As for the half bathroom, as you can see on the left from the last time I showed her off, she had a heaping pile of Hell [also known as wallpaper] that had just been stripped and laying on the ground. We since installed beadboard [go husband go] and painted the wall up above it. She is waiting [very patiently] on baseboard trim to be installed, a mirror to be hung, and crown molding to be installed but like we keep telling every other room--it will happen. soon. just not soon enough.


The good news is I did add this light fixture in there making it perfectly nautical and well, perfect. 


Moving onto the living room, this is what she looked like before [yes, every room in our house is a female apparently]. 


And here is her present state of mind.


Because I can't stop and won't stop loving mint, that's what happened here. Also, you will notice the trim went from brown to white. A few things yet to do in here but almost complete.

And the best for last---the kitchen. Lets go back to what it looked like last time we looked at it.


And as of tonight, here is what the kitchen currently looks like [sorry, it was dark outside when the photos were taken so the quality is a little iffy].


Obviously not finished, but a dang good start. For all of you locals out there, we worked with The Design Studio and could not be happier. Being able to sit down and have a kitchen designed to exactly what we want is so fun. There are some exciting things we are having added in that you don't see as of yet, but stay tuned--that will all come soon enough.

So there you have it, this week's update. We are down to 10 days before move in [#cray] and here is what is left. Mostly.

If it wasn't for the backyard, I would seriously question my mental state right now but this all makes it a teeny bit better. Drink anyone?

  19. We have mint in our living room. I actually didn't even think it was mint. I thought it was more of a seafoam, but it's pretty minty and I like it!! Looking good so far.

  22. I promise Dr.Brave if my wife come back i will shear testimony about him..

    Hello to every one out here, am here to share the unexpected miracle that happened to me three days ago, My name is Jeffrey Dowling,i live in Texas,USA.and I`m happily married to a lovely and caring wife,with two kids A very big problem occurred in my family seven months ago,between me and my wife so terrible that she took the case to court for a divorce she said that she never wanted to stay with me again,and that she did not love me anymore So she packed out of my house and made me and my children passed through severe pain. I tried all my possible means to get her back,after much begging,but all to no avail and she confirmed it that she has made her decision,and she never wanted to see me again. So on one evening,as i was coming back from work,i met an old friend of mine who asked of my wife So i explained every thing to her,so she told me that the only way i can get my wife back,is to visit a spell caster,because it has really worked for her too So i never believed in spell,but i had no other choice,than to follow her advice. Then she gave me the email address of the spell caster whom she visited.(bravespellcaster@gmail.com}, So the next morning,i sent a mail to the address she gave to me,and the spell caster assured me that i will get my wife back the next day what an amazing statement!! I never believed,so he spoke with me,and told me everything that i need to do. Then the next morning, So surprisingly, my wife who did not call me for the past seven {7}months,gave me a call to inform me that she was coming back So Amazing!! So that was how she came back that same day,with lots of love and joy,and she apologized for her mistake,and for the pain she caused me and my children. Then from that day,our relationship was now stronger than how it were before,by the help of a spell caster . So, was now stronger than how it were before,by the help of a spell caster . So, i will advice you out there to kindly visit the same website http://bravespellcaster.yolasite.com,if you are in any condition like this,or you have any problem related to “bringing your ex back. So thanks to Dr Brave for bringing back my wife,and brought great joy to my family once again.{bravespellcaster@gmail.com} , Thanks.

I read and appreciate every one of your comments. Thanks for stopping by my space and sharing a piece of yourself on this huge ole internet. I meant that in the least creepy way possible. I'm just good at making everything awkward. Anyhow, thank you for your comments. They make me smile :)
