… I don’t remember where I left off on house updates…
I’ll share what we have done the last few days.
Remember this mess?? Yeah… me too. A dear, dear friend came and helped me package it all up and move it to a temporary storage unit so that we could get things done.
Which became this…
It now looks like this.
Disgusting, dog pee carpet is waiting for trash pick up. It was really, really disgusting! The floor has been treated with Thompson’s Water Seal to prevent any odor from coming through and potential pee happening on the new carpet.
The walls have a fresh coat of white paint. All of the windows have freshly washed curtains as well.
Closet is empty and floor is treated. I forgot to take a photo of the bathroom – which is clean and empty and has a new toilet and shower stool and shower curtain. I can’t take a photo right now, you will see why in a minute…. read on…
Remember Liz’s room looked like this…
But then this happened because stuff from the other room was being stacked in here?
Then it became this!! This floor got a coat of Thompson’s Water Seal as well.
Then began the process of covering the dark blue… First a coat of grey primer.
Then the final coat of Greige – yep.. grey + beige = Greige! I’ll try to get a better photo with natural light tomorrow. Touch up on the trim and it is ready to go.
This photo makes it look more grey… It really is a pretty nice color. And the blue is nicely covered. We had some good memories as we reminisced about when it was painted blue by Abi and her friends before we moved in.
Then… because there will be carpet in the bedrooms, but only a runner in the hallway, we painted the portion by the doors so we don’t get paint on the new carpet later when we finally get to the runner.
**This is the reason I can’t go in and get a photo of the bathroom. **
Remember how this was the staging area for work?
Now everything has been cleared away from the raised floor and the walls have a fresh coat (or 2) of paint on them.
Tomorrow will be an exciting but exhausting day! Carpet comes AND we move my mother here. There is a part of me that is sad to move my mother out of her home, but ever so grateful that we have been able to make it happen so that we can take care of her easier.
