Good morning!

I have some super exciting news to share with you all.

Remember a few weeks ago I told you about that time we decided to tear down a few more walls because we just love demo? Or that time I came home to an almost completely gutted guest bathroom and office?

Well, now I am here to tell you that we have walls! And doors!

In between the hutch makeover and a Fourth of July party and the summer blog hop, Brett has been busting his buns, along with the help from my father, to get the walls and doors up. Our goal was to get the majority of the sheetrock on the walls by the end of June and we did it! And by we, I mean Brett and my dad.

That whole ‘completely open concept’ thing we were doing for a little while is no more. Our guests can have a little privacy, go potty in peace and not have to worry about the dogs jumping into bed with them at night.

Another great thing about walls? It means we are that much closer to the fun part – picking out the paint colors, choosing the flooring, adding the trim and most importantly, decorating.

I feel like a little kid who has been told they are going to Disneyland, but not for another year. I know it’s within reach, but it’s still a very, very far away.

We’ve sheetrocked the exterior office, the exterior guest bedroom, the mudroom and a majority of the guest bathroom.

What’s left? The closets in the office and guest bedroom, the interior guest bedroom walls, the mudroom closet and a small area in the guest bathroom.

This seems to be the first phase in our home renovation and it’s almost done – I mean, we just have to smooth out the sheet rock, add the flooring, finish the trim, paint the walls, stain the doors and door frame and a million and one more things.

But it’s all relative, right?

 

All our best,

Signature

      Thank you!! I cannot wait for that either. I haven’t given too much thought on colors yet. I am spending s little more time trying to decide on flooring and trim style/color. So many decisions!!!

    Girl, I’ve been there with hanging sheetrock and it is THE worst. The end product always makes it worth it. Can’t wait to see the whole finished project. Love those doors, by the way!!

    That is so awesome that you have come this far. And yes, so nice that your guests can have some privacy…It is so much fun to see your hard work turning into something. It gives such a good feeling, even though there are a million things more to do!

    Kelly, I am sorry I don’t have your e-mail, but wanted to ask you if you have heard of Hometalk?
    It is a DIY web sight that has pretty good ideas. Things are really coming along with the house. I am so excited for you both.
