Renovation Realities

Newly sanded floors in lvg rm look great! New opening to kitchen is so much better than the small pocket door. We drywalled up the arched doorway and turned the formal dining room into a 3rd bedroom (minus mirrored wall over window)

Like my $25 dollar chandelier? I found it on the front porch of Betty's Antiques and think it will look PERFECT in the pink bathroom!!! I looked it over and I *think* it has been newly rewired.....we shall see.

Don't get confused. This is the pink bathroom but somehow the silver kitchen chandelier made it into the picture. Oh, Margaret, I found that one for $8 in a Chicago thrift store. It's brand new, but I guess somebody didn't like the silver paint job they did on it. I like it!!

My husband is working tirelessly to make sure his almost 7 month pregnant wife can take a bath in her soon to be lovely pink bathroom. Jon, I love you.

The top pic is's looking great! The bathroom pic scares me, probably because plumbing can be a doozie! How you're well. The house is coming along!!
