Yeah, I'm pretty stoked that some things are getting all those gorgeous finishing touches.
I had to do a few time consuming things first...like staining all the trim I'd bought for the second floor windows. I haven't measured them out yet. That's still to come. But they're all stained. See?
|See? Nice dark red brown. Pretty.|
And I needed to put the stairs in. So I did a bunch of stuff at once. And I forgot to take pictures. So remember way back when I took pictures of how I wanted the rooms to look? We're going to do before and after.
|Not exactly high class or even livable...|
Yeah, it doesn't look like that anymore. See?
|Okay I lied. No crown moldings or stairs here. Not yet.|
Let's try that same view with stairs, and crown moldings, shall we?
|See? Same view...totally different.|
|You can see the grandfather clock and the coat rack.|
|I was so excited to get the mirror on the wall!|
We've also made great strides in the dining room. Remember the dining room? It looked like this?
|Again, very bare, nothing but furniture.|
|Step one, floors and walls. Cover 'em up!|
Of course everything is better with trim. See?
|See? Trim makes everything better. Finished looking.|
|See? Pretty. Like.|
And here we are with furniture and a chandelier.
|Sorry its a little blurry.|
|Yeah, definitely clearer.|
I also noticed a little problem. I was running out of crown molding. Yeah. That kind of problem. So I'm ordering more. Not a lot but enough to keep me going with the attic hall and finish the library.
We're not completely done with the upstairs but the kitchen is on the menu for next week. I hope you enjoy.
