So this week has been pretty exciting and very hectic; we are really starting to see the beauty of the house and how it’s going to look when it’s all done. We got our lovely counter-tops installed and they look wonderful!
We are going to re-paint the cupboards a little later after the bulk of everything else is done. Here’s a picture with our marble back-splash tiles:
What do you guys think? I love it! We had lots of other considerations this week also, our beautiful dresser is simply too tall for our vessel sink and we did not want to chop the lovely legs off so we will be using it as our dresser and have replaced it with this little beauty:
It is pretty similar to the French dresser I loved so much and we may paint it or re-finish it in some way as it needs a little love. It was a bargain through from a little antique store in Ridgeway called the Green Barn which has all sorts of cool little pieces.
So we are now all sorted for our vanity and the bathroom is really coming along too. This week has been about getting everything together and prepped and that has meant lots and lots of Polyfilla and sanding. Poor Jeff did the bulk of this as the dust really got to me and this was the result:
It’s a dirty dusty job but we now have almost perfect walls upon which to paint our lovely colours. I was actually pretty sick yesterday and so Jeff was free to finish prepping whilst I felt sorry for myself at home, on Friday we had left the house looking like this:
I painted the ceilings but left early and Jeff finished up priming our beams so we could go in today. Now I am feeling better and we were able to paint the first coat of the Revere Pewter, which we are really really happy with (you can see it on the wall to the right). We also went ahead and painted a patch of the blue on the wall to show you guys the contrast:
Remember our living room fabrics?
I think it’s all going to look great when we’re done. That’s just about all our updates for the last few days, We should have lots more exciting things to show you all soon as we are now getting into the bigger projects, our lovely bathroom tiles have been laid and are now just awaiting the grout and we just need one more coat of the pewter on the walls and we will be able to think about laying our laminate!
Finally, here is the kitchen sink.
As always leave your comments or opinions, we are really interested in what you have to say about our choices! We are sorry we just haven’t had time to go through and answer all of them but we are reading them, promise 🙂
