One room (or wall) at a time....

Our house saga began with just getting into the place and now that we're finally here the fun continues with fixing up our little work in progress. Here are a few before and after pics of what we've done so far.
Here's a pic of our living room before (as furnished by the previous renter), it was essentially a small beige box.
And after our week of designing, sawing, installing and painting we finally have our fabulous new built-in bookshelves to add some much needed character to our little room.

Here's the before pic of our bedroom (once again not our furniture), notice the lovely pink carpet which was not only notable for its color but also the lovely odor of the previous tenants dog :(


And the after pic of our bedroom with new paint, curtains, and floor. The paint color was a bit of a mistake as it ended up a bit too close to the color of margarine for my taste but overall still an improvement.

Here's the room in progress....

And up next, a front door, stay tuned......

Great job on the remodel! It looks a million times better! You guys have great taste. We're currently remodeling our house in Sidney, only to move back to CA! Shaun got a job in SB, as things really dried up here. So we're hurrying as fast as we can to get it on the market, but we're feeling kind of bummed that we'll never get to live in the house after it's remodeled. boohoo. But I'd rather be in CA. So i'm not shedding too many tears. P.S. LOVE the bunny ears. too cute.
