A Look Back

Our first major project in the new house was to paint pretty much Everything!  We began by painting the downstairs living room, kitchen, foyer and stairwell. 

We were so happy to have the "Little Giant" ladder and a nice extension rod to help us reach the "unreachable" places!  We were a GREAT team!


Say goodbye to the "Army" green!






Thank you Little Giant

The living room included removal of the existing mantel above the fireplace and installation of a more modern one. 




The kitchen included painting the kitchen cabinets, inserting frosted plexi glass panels in the upper cabinets, and adding hardware to all the cabinets. 
 

Cabinets ready to be primed!
 

Cabinets all nice and primed

Cabinets with 2 coats of paint

I guess I didn't take any pictures of the cabinet doors being primed and painted...just imagine them laid out nicely on tables in the garage during this process. 

 My amazing mom came down to help us with this daunting task. 
   

The woman from which I have learned everything I know about home improvement!  Love you mom!

Stay tuned for the after pics that include some new light fixtures and window treatments.  The images will look much better taken during the daylight hours...as you can see this was a "burning the midnight oil" project!
