Here she is!

The befores and the plan

Laundry Room

ImageTo do:

  • Paint the walls, ceiling and door
  • Turn the unsafe half wall into a full wall
  • Add baseboards and trim

Kitchen

Image

ImageThe kitchen has so many weird angles and an odd layout that it’s hard to get a good photo of it!

To do:

  • Paint
  • New ceiling fan
  • Add cabinets and open shelving to the North wall around the stove
  • Take down the bead board (and relocate the good pieces to the hall bathroom)
  • Repair the plaster walls
  • Someday replace the drawer pulls and knobs

Hallway

Image

The right side of this picture shows where the stove, new cabinets and shelves will go.

To do:

  • Paint
  • Figure out a way to make the laminate closet door look 100 years old
  • *eventually* find out if the floors running through the rest of the house are under the laminate floor (I REALLY hope they are!)

Guest room

Image

Image

To do:

  • Paint, paint, paint!
  • New ceiling fan
  • Fix the closet doors/make them look old (they won’t stay closed and they’re that plain, white fake wood.  I hate them.)
  • Redo the shelves in the corner closet (seen in the 2nd photo.)  The shelves aren’t installed very well and they’re weird heights.  It will be my temporary crafts closet and I want to be able to organize my bins
  • Take out the door (on the right in this picture) and wall it up-the layout of this room doesn’t make sense (there are two doors into this room)

Hall bath

Image

To do:

  • Paint
  • Move the medicine cabinet that’s over the toilet to over the sink
  • Change out the faucet, knobs and showerhead
  • Finish trim around tub
  • Add bead board to the wall on the left

Master bedroom

Image

To do:

  • Paint
  • Replace ceiling fan
  • Finish adding trim around the baseboards
  • Paint the closet (a walk in-I KNOW!)
  • Put outlets on the closet wall and inside closet (so I can have light in there!)
  • Add organizers to closet
  • Install carpet/flooring in the closet

1/2 Bath

ImageTo do:

  • Strip the wall paper (actually already done-thanks mom!)
  • Paint
  • Replace the light fixture
  • Replace the vanity
  • Replace the toilet
  • Replace the medicine cabinet
  • Install outlets in the bathroom (there aren’t any right now!)

Living are 1 (soon to be office area)

Image

My camera battery was dying at this point-flash was hit or miss

Image

To do:

  • See that doorway into the green room in the second photo?  It’s going away!
  • Paint
  • Turn the wall sconces over-they were installed upside down and they collect bugs and are a pain to clean

Main living area

Image

Image

To do:

  • Paint
  • Remove the mirrors
  • Remove the tile above the fireplace.  The mantle is great and I don’t love, but can live with the tile on the hearth
  • Replace the ceiling fan
  • Create some built ins to the right of the fire place for the TV, DVD player, cable box etc…

Outside

Image

Image

Yes, that’s my reflection in the GLASS they used to construct these sheds

Yikes, right?

To do:

  • Paint
  • Replace the front door
  • Lay out grass seed/fertilizer this fall and hope for grass next spring
  • Trim up the bottom three feet of that blue spruce out front so it doesn’t scrape my car as I pull in and out of my driveway
  • Fix the gate to the left of the house-it scrapes the ground and doesn’t open properly
  • Plant a garden and flowers…someday!
  • Build a real fence around the whole yard starting with the corner where the nasty sheds are-eventually have a driveway that leads straight from the street to the alley
  • Tear out the old, ugly fences
  • Install siding to the laundry room addition
  • Have the apple tree pruned

I don’t have pictures of the tiny entry way (which is one of my favorite parts of the house) but I will take some tomorrow!

Also tomorrow I’ll show you what I’ve already completed!

Now I’m ready for bed!
