A Sheet Rockin Party

Things have changed a bit in our house, and I have to tell you…it’s getting for the better:)  It seems like my mood shifts so much these days, especially with the cooler weather!  I can’t help but think about cooking soups and baking cookies in my “non-existent” kitchen.  Or curl up with my latest Better Homes and Gardens by the fire.  But, after a small pity party that I try to keep to myself, I think, wow…I am so excited to see how this is going to turn out and hope it will all be worth it:)  So, labor day weekend we called a crew in to finally cover up that awful lathe and insulation that has been glaring at me for the past 2 months.  It’s amazing how bright it gets with a little bit of white on the walls.  Here is how she’ coming along!

I know, the floors are still there.  The last menace in my side.  But, there is white on the walls and a sneak peek of the posts we got for the stairs.  The window wall will be sink under the window, dishwasher bottom left and refrigerator way right.  Oh, and good news, our cabinet guy came out and can tweak and use all the cabinets we got, yay!  They will work:)

The main floor bath now has walls, and a toilet!  No more running upstairs to use the potty:)

Kynlee’s room already has a light pink coat of paint on it…super pale but I’m loving it.  I can’t wait to get my hands on those floors!!

and the staircase.  I can paint the rest of the upstairs this weekend!  Hooray:)

Oh, and this is how my kids use the sheetrock…

There’s a pretty good little fort somewhere in there!  With two cute little kids hiding:)

So…next on the agenda

1.)  I’m tiling our bathroom tomorrow night.  HA!  Never done it a day in my life but I watched a few you tube videos on it and will say a little prayer.  More to come…

2.)  Painting Kynlees floor.  Can’t wait to see how these white wood floors turn out!

3.)  Trim trim and more trim.  Painting that is.  Hopefully one of these days we can get some up:)

4.)  Sanding and painting cabinets.  Quite the job but so worth the free cabinets!  I’ll let you know what color I decided on!

Hopefully you’ll see a couple of these projects completed in the next week…hopefully!

  1. Hey Allie. How exciting!!!!! The post you picked is the same one I have at the lake in Dassel. Mine were stained oak posts with white rails in between. Loved that railing and the posts! So I’m loving your choice!!!!
