Renovations that take too Long: Bedroom before and after

The back bedroom started as the previous owners  closet.  One of the windows was covered up and there were boards nailed to the wall to hang extra clothing, the hard wood floors were covered up by carpet.

I had to paint over lots of purple, and rip out carpet.  The process has been long given the fact that I don't have much "spare-time" What ever that is.

This is what the floor looked like after I pulled up the carpet.  It will need to be sanded and re-finished, but that will have to be a project for another time. For now I'll enjoy it's character.

I'll need to put up some art and do things to make it cozier, but here is what I'm not left with.

Kitchen Before and After 07.07.13

I was overly ambitious for my parent's visit this weekend.  I thought we might be able to get the raised bed in, kitchen done and paint my bedroom, but that would have been too much.  We did get the raised bed done, the kitchen repainted, put in a rose-bush, picked up a compost barrel, picked up a couch, and a dining room table and got them put together.

Here are the pictures of the Kitchen,

That's the bright happy new kitchen.  I'm in love with the colors.  The hardware looks great and I'm enjoying it throughly.  I can't wait to start hosting parties.  It was certainly fun to cook in my own kitchen for my parents this past weekend.  There is no way I could have gotten everything done without them. I'm a lucky gal to have such wonderful and supportive parents!

Maybe I'll do the bedroom next weekend, anyone want to come help me paint?

Happy Sunday Friends, -Ish
