Makeover Madness!



First let me start by saying I was so very thrilled to be featured on one of my favorite blogs Monday, Shrimp Salad Circus.  They featured our little desk and chair makeover I blogged about several months ago... Everything Old is New Again.  Check out Lindsay's blog, it really is fabulous!                         

And in other makeover news... my floors are finished!  WOO HOO!  As I mentioned in Part One and Two, we decided to trash our 10 year old carpet and replaced some of it with wood and the rest of the house got new SOFT carpet (as my kids call it)...

Living Room AFTER... say Hello to my photo bomber, HOLLISTER



And my absolute most favorite part of the entire project... the spot of many future photos of Dear Daughter in dresses I will probably have spent too much money on... the STAIRCASE.

Staircase BEFORE...


Staircase AFTER!!!

For all the dust (OMIGOSH, the D.U.S.T.), chaos, disorganization and general headache this caused, I am completely in love with these floors.  We recarpeted our upstairs and master bedroom, but pictures of new carpet are just not that exciting.  The outside has been repainted and my front door refinished... it was like getting a new house, except I got to keep the good neighbors and didn't have to deal with packing or any annoying mortgage companies.

I t looks GORGEOUS - yeah the dust is bad I'm not sure what's worse sheet rock dust or floor sanding....they both make your house look like a crack factory for weeks!

Gorgeous floors! I love the staircase! So much easier to clean up a spill or crumbs with floor under the table rather than carpet!

I know SibStudio... I don't know what I was thinking when we built this house and put carpet in the dining room. Oh, yes I do... I was thinking it was all we could afford. HA! Oh well, happy for that yucky carpet to be GONE! :)
