At last, the ultimate before and after blog post. Prepare yourselves for an onslaught of pictures! Also, please note that some of the “after” pictures contain various items (junk, un-hung pictures, clothes, a dog, etc) that are definitely NOT endorsed by Kathleen as “blog-post appropriate.” If that sort of stuff offends you, then this post is definitely NSFU (Not Safe For You). Pic Dump – Initiate…
We’ll start with the front door (note, my brother-in-law’s dog):
The den/1st room by back door:
Things to note: on the second row of pictures, I’m pushing hard for a kegerator/keezer to go under the bank of 3 windows (I need your help!). Please text/email/message your congress
personKathleen showing your support.
Things to note: the Christmas tree which will not always be there, der. And, the
boring blank far wall. That is where I’m wanting to put our artwork-in-progress. I mentioned it way back in the colander-light post. Basically, I’m looking for three 15 x 39 wooden louvered shutters. Its proving difficult to find some that meet my required adjectives whilst being a reasonable price. On these shutters, we have a box full of antique kitchen gadgets to hang. If it is ever completed, I think it will look really, really neat.
Things to note: there is a brown, white, and blue shower curtain on there now. I
was too lazy forgot to take a newer picture.
The “Boring” bedroom:
Things to note: the dog crate, and stuff on the bed is my brother-in-laws fault – yay for our first out-of-town guest (I think)!
The “TRIPPY” room:
Things to note: remember that painting from David French we were wanting?!? That’s it on the bed! Thanks Clay and Brad! Also, Kathleen’s dad spurred an idea for some artwork to adorn one of the walls in this room – we’re going to make a painting incorporating all of the original colors!
The Living Room:
Things to note: Once we get some money we’re owed from the bank, we’re going to seriously upgrade our tv set-up ^smiley face. Also, Kathleen and her brother Robby are out shopping for a rug to put in here today. Fingers crossed they pick something cool! I like oriental rugs, they don’t. I think I’m going to lose this battle…
The Master Bedroom:
Things to note: we’ve still got some art to hang in here (talk about procrastination!). Also, I really get a kick out of the change in the old master bathroom area.
Master Bathroom (its a new room so there are no old comparison photos):
And that concludes this very long and very picture-y post. Now come see it in person!
