Last week our contractor Jeff finished up the last of his Round 2 projects. This included powerwashing the house and garage. So fresh and so clean clean!
After getting all that yellow-y mold and mildew off the house, I actually wondered if maybe the house is actually black, but Patrick insists that it is still dark blue.
While we're outside, check it out - some of our leaves are starting to turn red!
I love the size of them, yet the clear bases don't obstruct the open feeling of the room. Here's a close-up:
We've also broken ground downstairs on the small corner den (which was originally the dining room, but won't fit our family for Thanksgiving). You may remember that we initially wanted to turn the playroom into a space for Zeph, but we have since realized that the whole house is essentially a playroom for Zeph. We also realized that even though we love the open concept floor plan downstairs, there isn't a ton of wall space for our bookshelves. So we've decided to turn that extra room into a den/library.
Here's the room before we moved in:
Here it is after we removed the stinky carpet last month (and used it as a painting room for cabinet doors):
We picked a deep red paint for the walls, and Patrick began priming the wood molding in the room over the weekend. We haven't much done yet, but it feels good to have it started. Plus, it's always easier to jump into a project once it's started, because all the tools and prepwork are ready for you. Here is the room now:
|See the red patch on the wall? Love it!|
And the other corner:
I have a few more updates for you all, but they'll have to wait til later this week--Zeph is up from his nap and is zooming all over the place. Off I go to catch him!
