And the renovations go on…

6 Feb

Yes contrary to popular belief we are still in the midst of our home renovation. We are slowly getting closer and closer to a finished product (a.k.a our first home) and I can’t wait! I knew we would have to be patient when we decided to take this on but I’m just ready for warm weather, the house to become our home, & fun wedding events that this summer will bring.

Work continues on Garden Court. We now have all tile installed, vanities have arrived, hardwood floors installed, interior doors, trim, and crown molding. We bought new spindles for the stairs. Our kitchen cabinets are completed and are on their way to get painted before being installed. The painter starts priming the walls tomorrow! A lot is going on and hopefully all the work ahead will fly by.

Yes those are new hardwood floors even though you can’t tell because of all the dust and dirt! They will be getting stained in a couple weeks. We also went with classic 6 paneled interior doors.

So remember my home depot vanity? Well the color in real life is less “Antique blue” and more just green. I think it looks like seaweed and I will be painting it a very pale blue before it gets installed.

Here are some sneak peeks at the tile. All the bathrooms are pure chaos right now so i think all the amazing tile & vanities deserve their own beautiful reveal later on. This is the guest bathroom shower.

Dirty guest bathroom floor.

My beloved basketweave marble floor in the master bath plus Kevin’s creepy hand. Looks so awesome in person, I’m really happy with how this turned out.

Marble subway tile master shower with shampoo shelf! I love how different each tile is giving the whole shower such variation.

Here is a sample of our kitchen granite “super white” next to our cabinet color Benjamin Moore’s “Dove White”.

Different lighting totally changes the color of the cabinets in photos. It’s more of a creamy white than it looks in the first photo but definitely lighter than the second.

We chose Dove White for all the trim and doors throughout the house as well. I feel like it will give everything a nice cohesiveness.

I’m really anxious to see the cabinets installed! They’re going to totally change the whole kitchen/family room for the better! Stay tuned!
