So, it’s taken a little longer than we expected (doesn’t it always?), but our renovation projects are finally coming to a close.
We moved into our new bedroom the weekend before last and are loving it. We have this enormous bay window with the most incredible view. This is the scene that greeted me each morning last week:
I have yet to order blinds, which is becoming more and more of a problem every day as the trees continue to shed their leaves. I should probably be doing that right now (there’s always so much I should be doing instead of blogging!), but those few days of glorious color inspired my autumn decorating theme:
The closet is done as well and what a joy it is to no longer have to rummage through the storage boxes under my bed to find clothes. Here are some pre-moving in pictures:
And my, how quickly we’ve filled this thing up:
The glass for the shower was just installed today and now Mark and I have to tackle painting the bathroom. We’ve been doing all the painting ourselves to save a few bucks, which has been a huge job because of all the trim and cabinetry. But every day, we’re a tiny bit closer.
And this evening, when Braedan walked into the bathroom to see the completed shower for the first time, he exclaimed, “Wow! This is like that dream house we saw on TV.”
Indeed. And in so many ways.
