progress…

Some of you may have noticed I have been a little bit absent here and on the internet the past few weeks. That is because we have been so busy tearing out and putting back together the flooring in the kitchen and our new office.

I wanted to share a bit of our progress and where we are at right now.  My office is mostly finished.  I am just sharing a little sneak peak today but hopefully plan on getting all the small details finished up here soon so I can share the full reveal with you.  I am loving it so far.

office cabinets delivered wm 

My cabinets were finally delivered to be installed almost 3 weeks ago.  Then when the guy came to install them he discovered that they were built 3 inches TOO TALL!!!  What?!  He was the one who came out and did the measure (twice). I saw the measurements that he sent in to the cabinet shop…but somewhere the numbers were entered wrong.  So….We had to wait another week for the cabinets to be rebuilt.

{love the curtains but took them back for some different ones which look much better in there now…}

This was good news to the girls who got to keep their dance studio a week longer.  Why is there a fan in the room?  Well first it was out because the new toilet we installed had an invisible hairline crack in it and was slowly leaking onto our newly laid wood floor….gah! But then it became one of the girls “props” to blow their hair back whilst dancing :)….Who doesn’t need one of those while dancing? Ha Ha

I shared one of my daughters dancing in the “dance studio” here.

The cabinets finally got put in and I couldn’t be happier with all my storage space.  Here is my old office space.   I had a few other closets in the house where I had some of my sewing supplies and material and my office supplies…not to mention all my craft STUFF!  So it is nice to have it ALL. IN. ONE. SPOT!

Most of my stuff has now been transferred except for a few loose ends here and there…but we are making progress people!  We put all the moldings back onto the wall and repainted everything.  I have to repaint the ceiling (not my favorite) but we are getting so close!

remodel dust wm

And….did I mention the dust?  Yikes!  I knew it was going to be messy…but I never imagined it would be THIS messy…and it is EVERYWHERE!  Maybe that is why I have been sick off and on for the last 6 weeks or so.

The floors are now finished and I am in LOVE! I will be sharing those later.  I have never been more happy to be on the downhill side of such a huge undertaking.  But I am liking where we are heading.  Hoping to be able to share some more updates soon.

    Amy, it is looking wonderful. Projects like this take some time, and a lot of patience. You are almost there. Congratulations. Can’t wait to see your new space.

    Looks great Amy! Love the pants, I laughed because my husband has some just like them. I relate to the dust issue too. When we did our floors, it was EVERYWHERE, even inside of closed cabinets! Happy Cleaning :)

    I love the paint color in “the dance studio”/first few pictures. Will you share your paint choices with us? please? It ‘s all beautiful.

    It’s looking beautiful, Amy! I’m jealous of your storage cabinets!

    Aloha,

    It’s looming great! I hate painting ceilings too. I’d forgotten how much until just recently when we went on a painting marathon. Can’t wait to see your new kitchen.

  12. 12

    Wow! You have been busy! It’s so frustrating to put up with the mess though, isn’t it?
    I cannot wait to see the finished product! It’s gonna be fab!

    I am looking to redo my kids playroom and looking for more storage, where did you get those white cabinets? I love how it slides out at the bottom for the kids but then I can put stuff higher and they can’t get. I have done so much research and just haven’t found what I wanted, and these would work.

    Thanks for your help.

    Hi! Love the way it is turning out! I especially love the paint color! Do you mind sharing the brand/color? Looking for something similar for a nursery I am working on!

    I love your old curtains too! They look like what I’ve been looking for to use in my living room. Do you mind sharing where they are from or any info you have on them?

      The curtains are from Target. I just saw some there last time I was there too. So you might still be able to get them! I believe they are name Grey Scroll if that helps.

    We recently remodeled our kitchen and family room, too. Well, we had it done :) No one can ever prepare for the amount of dust. Everyone tells you, but you can’t possibly understand it until you’ve lived through it. We all suffered bronchitis through it, too. The tile tear out, the drywall tear out, the wood floor installation…dust, dust, dust, DUST! Your finished project is beautiful!

    This web site truly has all of the info I wanted concerning this subject and didn’t know who to ask.
