I read over my last entry and laughed. A few weeks of work on the house? Try a few months! We’re still taking care of a zillion little (and not so little) odds and ends. We should’ve taken more pictures during the process, but here are a few before-and-afters:

Someone had put up a backsplash, but it was goopy with dried glue and looked terrible up close. The Hubs chiseled off the glass, sanded it down to a terrifying looking mess, and my mom took care of the rest with her amazing mudding skills.

It’s hard to take pictures in a bathroom, but this gives you an idea. New floor, new toilet, fresh paint, and a really cool birch tree shower curtain.

Very hard to get a good photo of this bathroom, but we put in a new toilet, new vanity, new floor, new mirror, and new light fixture. (The before pictures for the bathrooms look worse than they really were, since this was partway into demolition.)

All of this renovation meant that we moved in later than we thought and were slower to unpack. This was our bed for four nights. (You can see our priorities: books and tea made it to the new house before the real bed.)

More updates to come!
