I promised you some pictures and here they are. This has several photo's so grab a cup of coffee and walk through my house with me. :-) These were actually take about 2 weeks ago so the house is some what clean, I did say some what!
This first photo is what you see standing from the front entry way of the house. My sisters little baby bassinet is over by the couch for when I have my nephew over. Some of you might recognize the dining room chairs that my mom and I re-upholstered a few Christmas back. Yes that is a stuffed Olaf from the movie Frozen on the couch.
Next if you walk into the living room a little and look to your right you can see into the kitchen and family room. We are switching these two rooms around with the renovation. The old family room will be the new dining room and the front living room (where we are now) will be the new family room.
If you walk over towards the kitchen and look back at the living room you see the front bay window. That cream rose furniture we have had since we got married 15 years ago. It is still in great condition and has lasted quite nicely through the boys and the dog. :-) We will be selling it however as we won't need two sets of furniture and I will want new furniture at some point. But for now we will stick with the one set we will keep. There will be new carpet in here of course, and this will be the new family room.
The vinyl flooring will be coming up along with the carpet you see in the back. This is where all the tile will be installed and the dining room will be the back part.
If you look up this is the view of the old family room soon to be dining room. Yea!!! Sorry for the messy counters. All that carpet will soon be tile! We will be painting that maroon wall to a willow (light celery) color that you see on the right hand side in the kitchen. Those are sound deadning panels on the back wall. My husband hasn't quite figured out how he wants to work the surround sound now that we don't have the set up as we wired the house 11 years ago when we built it. We didn't plan on staying here or moving the rooms around. However we are excited to be making the changes and that just means he can get something new for surround. Oh boy....
If you stand at the hallway opening you can see the TV wall (soon to hold one of the hutches and the other wall for the smaller one) and the opening hall to our bedroom. The main bathroom will be getting tile installed as well since ours already has tile from original building. The rest of the house will have new carpet through out!
So that is the old home as I keep calling it. The new home will be coming in the next two weeks or so. The house is all packed except for a few things. I will show you pictures when we are all complete with the change. Very exciting and a lot of work! Thanks for taking a tour of part of my home with me. :-)
Don't worry as I have all my Power Poppy sneak peeks done and ready to show off come Sunday 27th! We have some awesome stuff coming your way so be sure to check back in. Have a wonderful day!
