From The New House: Pictures Finally!

Welcome!
Annabelle making herself at home in the freshly painted living room.

BEFORE: The formerly -aqua- living room and mantle (with nasty tile) before my sister-in-law painstakingly stripped it.
FOR CONSIDERATION: paint colors for the walls, trim, ceilings and interior doors.  

The old HVAC system before getting hauled off by R.S Andrews.
Attacking the aqua with the warmth of Benjamin Moore's White Dove.  This shade will go on all the walls and trim.  So far, I have 4 rooms down and am really happy the hue.


It's been quite a while, Glossies!  Between work, the holidays, and all the projects over at the new house, I've neglected the blog quite a bit.  Starting now, I'm committing to posting pictures throughout our renovation as often as I can.  Feel free to pipe in with any questions and I'll respond as soon as I can.  As you can tell, the house is a huge work in progress and there is still much work to be done despite our massive progress.  We've had a great deal of help from family, friends and Thomas down at the Benjamin Moore across from The Wren's Nest. Since moving in on News Years Day, we've already replaced the entire HVAC  and electric system, painted rooms and trim, rewired light fixtures, patched drywall, pulled out and even re-plumbed a vanity, toilet, disposal and (you guessed it) the kitchen sink.  I'm enjoying every day of changes (though extremely grateful to be able to return to my still very in tact apartment during the progress).  I have big plans, y'all and I look forward to sharing their fruition with you.  In fact, stay tuned for progress pictures of the bathroom renovation coming tomorrow!
