Slowly but Surely

There are some days that we feel like nothing is accomplished and some days we check off a million things. However we are are getting there slowly but surely. WE only have the counter top and floors left before we can move in. However, those are the two BIGGEST things!!! The counter top will be done this week which we will be so glad when that is done! Other than those two projects were in. I still plan on having Christmas there. What? I want to open presents in our own house this year -sue me...(office fans?)

Romney had fun taking off the original tiles. Now its ready to turn into a bar!


Rom hard at work setting up the plywood!

Now it is officially ready for tiles. There are so many steps to this one project. We are putting in 12x12" granite tiles.


While Romney is working downstairs I've been working upstairs on some paint. Most of the rooms we used an airless paint sprayer (highly recommended) but some areas we didn't! Like the bedrooms...so dumb.

Before you judge my stripes hear what I'm doing! This blue isn't just any blue it happens to be TWILIGHT BLUE, so I am doing the same blue in stripes just one stripe is a flat finish and the other one will be a semi gloss finish. So it'll be a slight stripe...hopefully. HGTV moment.


This room used to be the brightest spring green..yikes! Now all it needs is chair rail.


Here is the old smurf blue room. It is supposed to have a green tone. Some see it some don't.

So cute Erin!!! Stripes are fun...we did them in jacob's room and I miss his room so much. Jake painted the white first..then taped off the stripes with the blue tape, then painted the blue stripes. Maybe you found an easier way?? Loving the "twilight blue!!!" That is hilarious!!!

Everything is just as you described. I hope the stipes turn out the way you imagine. I think it's a really cute idea. Good luck to Romney getting the tiles done AND fitting in a little sleep tonight(smile).

Why doesn't paint look the same on the walls as it does in the little cards in the store?!! I am anxious to see how the blue stripes turn out . . . very cool idea. Can't wait to see you. Give me a call when you get a chance.

The house looks GREAT! I think you two will definitely appreciate it more since you guys put all of your hard work into it! You'll have such a fun 1st Christmas in your VERY OWN house! Lucky gal! We're very excited for the little babe to come. Less than a month to go, we can hardly believe it. I know I need to update the blog, but I've just been crazy busy with work... it'll be so nice to take a few months off after the baby comes! I'm sure I'll do LOTS of posting when I have a cute baby girl to take pictures of! Merry Christmas! xoxo

So???? Christmas in the house? I hope so!!! Your work is amazing, and I remember seeing that satin/flat finish stripe on a show once, it looked pretty cool.
Merry Christmas!
