mini-extreme makeover

we lived in disarray for 2 weeks while the carpenter and the painters gave our house a much-needed face lift. here are some photos. i love before-and-after pictures!

our fabulous "new" kitchen. i'm extremely pleased with the new countertops (especially the butcher block section), and i'm amazed what a little crown molding,paint, and hardware can do!


i think it looks like a completely different place!


my nook - before-ish, during, and after

the fireplace - what a transformation!

living in it. a nightmare, but so worth it!

scroll back up and check out the brass light fixture that was in the eat-in area. pat and i replaced it with the drum pendant shown here. it took forever for us to figure out how to install it exactly right, but we did it and i think it looks great!


other projects - the hallway light fixtures, the door knobs, etc. i'm getting handy with a little sand paper and some spray paint!

what do you think so far??

Nice job on everything. I really like the dining fixture. Great choice! Do you have sconces on the wall in the living room or are those shelves?
