Weekend Recap

Good morning and happy Monday! Why is it a 'happy' Monday you might ask?? BECAUSE MONDAY'S ARE OFFICIALLY BACK! (ya'll know me and my obsession with ABC's the Bachelor and tonight Andi starts her run as the Bachelorette!) Ah, finally Monday's are cool again (cool enough for 2 hours of reality drama and most likely a polished off bottle of wine haha) I'm going to continue to live tweet so join in (you can follow me here) but the service at the new house is prehistoric so I'm starting to panic....

Anyway- on to what this post is really about. I didn't do an update on the house reno last week because things were so hectic so I'm excited to share some of the things that have been going on lately. We are so used to sheet rock dust that my allergies and sinus' hate me and I'm immune to paint smell and Kilz heavy-duty primer. But, without further ado, here is the new progress so far:

We hired someone to take the mantel down about 10-11 inches. Don't freak out- this way, the ugly 'not original' red brick will be less visible AND we can fit the television comfortably on top without neck strain or an added corner unit. It should be done next week! 


Sanding the brass to possibly change

La la la...starting the four coats of paint to cover the red brick with white

SO much better!!



Master is patched and sheet rocked










Ready for paint!

Ok I promised a master closer preview since I was finally able to unpack! Some accessories still haven't come in and the floors still need their final finish but I am SO excited with how it has turned out!

We have clothes!


 Remember the closet and mantel before below???



Also we have had some progress with the new metal roof going up despite all of the recent rain


The shiny metal is the new part


Look at this guy!


Living room color?

No sheet rock dust....for now...

  1. Oh. My. Gosh. Your closet is to die for!!! It's like straight off of Pinterest! Looove it! And I always love your live tweets so can't wait for tonight woohoo! :)

  2. Girl...you might not have any friends after this post bc everyone is going to be INSANELY JEALOUS of that A-MAZing closet you have! Seriously...it looks like it came straight out of a magazine showcasing a celebrity's house! Love Love Love!

    And you'll have to let me know how you decide to deal with the cords when you install your TV above the mantel. We're wanting to do that with our TV, but I'm not really wanting to shell out the $$$ to have an audio visual company come in and put the wires behind the wall and all that. Apparently having it above the fireplace makes it a bit tricky due to the heat, etc. So....I'd love to know your approach to this fun project! Haha.

  17. I could live in your closet! I agree with everyone's sentiments... it's simply stunning! The metal roof is awesome! I tried convincing Matt do put one on our house, but he didn't 'like it'. Lame. :) I quit the Bachelor/Bachelorette cold turkey a few seasons back and haven't looked back. Although I do enjoy reading recaps!

  24. Is that closet for real?!!! Dying. I'm overwhelmed with extreme jealousy!! :-)
    I can't believe how much of a difference painting the brick made. It looks so much better!! Oh, and I've NEVER watched the bachelor, or bachelorette, but you & a few other girls sure do have me tempted...
