6.20.14 Bathroom and Bedroom Renos

We are busy getting the last of the popcorn ceilings removed, painting all walls and trim, updating some bathrooms and the kitchen.  Here are some “before” pictures so you can understand how outdated it is.  We wanted to list the house for sale by July 1 but I am thinking that is a bit unrealistic.

This used to be my son's bedroom and his paint color choice.  This is one of four rooms that we are removing popcorn ceilings, painting ceiling, walls and trim and installing new carpet.

This is the little vanity outside my bathroom.  All we have to do here is remove popcorn, paint and update the top of the vanity.  And new carpet.

This is one of our kitchen counter tops.  Yup, an old recycled sign from the ski area I work at.   Funny, the things you get used too.  New granite counter-tops on their way!

Tomorrow I start a week of vacation.  I plan on spending about 75% of that vaca working on the house.  Hopefully, I will find the time to blog so I can share the progress.

6.19.14 Lake House Exterior Ideas

Today I want to take a break from popcorn ceilings and painting to think about the future lake house.  I have lots of photos that I have in lots of different places.  I need to bring them all together.  Here are a few.

This is a house that I really think could work.  It has an add on that I don't think we would need.  My favorite so far.
