so the background on our house - or townhouse, rather. 3 story townhouse - short sale (which went surprsingly quick!) we started work at the end of november. the house was filthy from not being kept up by renters, but the entire house was gutted in 2004 - so most everything was up to date, just not clean.
the first thing that had to go was the carpets. but first we painted. or my sweet, hard working husband and some friends painted while i chased around the crazy baby man.
after painting, we ripped up the carpets, and installed unfinished oak floors. i want to say 3 1/4inch.

this weekend we started to make some decisions. finally hung some pictures in the kitchen. my weekly food menu is on the board. hopefully this will help me plan food wise for the week. i made the print.
|we will eventually replace these counters. not that i don't love the "i already look like i have stuff spilled on the counter already so you can't tell when you spill something" look|

living room pic. the changes we still plan to make are: covering the built-in and installing a real fireplace mantel (hopefully old mantel), and then mount the tv above the fireplace.
please note that i purchased the couch in the picture on craiglist for $20. please note that it is a restoration hardware couch in great condition. insert happy dance. most of the things in our living room probably are not staying there. we are just sorting it all out.
below is the kitchen - dining room. do you like our boxspring that we could not get up the staircase? also, that lovely chair is a side of the road find. i am going to reupholster it. i may have to do the same fabric though because that orange is really growing on me.
that's all for now - i'll share more pictures soon!
