This week is my spring break and so far I've done nothing but catch up on house work and school stuff. I'm getting a little sick of it so I'm taking a break for a little blog update to brighten my mood. After Christmas break Reed and I were re-motivated to get this house done. We started in the kitchen. It needed a little facelift but we didn't want to spend a ton of money doing it. This is what it started as.
The counter tops were ugly and had burn marks so something needed to be done about that.
Our Kitchen was a mess for weeks but slowly and surely everything came together.
Then we moved onto our guest bathroom. Again we just wanted to give the bathroom a facelift. This bathroom just had too much blue for our liking. The bath tile was blue, the floor was blue, the walls were blue and the sink counter was blue. We bought a kit to paint over the tile which turned out really great, better than we thought. I painted the walls and Reed laid tile on the floor since it was just linoleum.
Here is what it looks like now. I wanted to take the shower doors off but it is tiled in the shower so it is here to stay for a while. We bought a new light fixture for this room too. I still need to hang some towel hangers, some shelves and get a new rug and a few other things but the major stuff is completed. Looks completely different but we really didn't have to do a ton.
Our next project was to do tile in the closets in our hallway. They were umm pretty gross. One closet was used for the past owners cats litter box and it just still smelled pretty bad. We ripped out the old gross cat smelling linoleum to lay some tile down. One closet had our hot water heater and the other holds our washer and dryer.
