Here are a couple of before and during photos, stay tuned for more as we progress!
This hall leads from the open concept living room and kitchen area to the 3 bedrooms and the bathroom. Please note the abundance of hideous textures in the hall. Beams, popcorn ceilings, paint, wallpaper, wood, shag carpet... AHHHHH so many competing ugly things in one place! Since this photo was taken, we have also replaced the old beam and bizarre grecco-roman columns over the living room with a super awesome raw hemlock beam and posts.
Our original plan was the refinish the existing kitchen cabinets. On our closing day, a truckload of unfinished oak cabinets arrived at our local Home Depot and we were able to purchase all new cabinetry for $1500. SCORE. The other side of those studs to the left is the master bedroom. The husband is in the process of building his and hers double closets that will extend the length of the entire wall. A home for my shoes!! Yay!
