Today was a good day. I got to the house after work and looked in the kitchen. The workers had taken out the old counter top! Which is great. They also started doing some plaster repair in one of the bedrooms! And Erin grouted the bathroom tile. My dad and mom and sister all came up to help as well. We finished stripping the door, now it just needs to be primed and and painted and it is going to look amazing. Colleen started lining the drawers in my kitchen so I will start by slowing moving in some kitchen stuff. But not too much because the kitchen is going to be a mess pretty soon when the are working on the counter top and plaster repair to one of the kitchen walls. The plumber should be at the house on Tuesday to do some work.

I found some vintage looking hardware in the unit we are remodeling, so I put it in our bedroom.

The door knob I bought this weekend from Anthropologie, one of my favorite stores. The plate and door knobs on all of our doors are cool and vintage looking, but were painted over. So I am stripping the paint away and bringing back the brass look. I am doing the same on all door hinges too. The door knob fits perfectly on the hardware. But, it was $38... So I will have to pace myself with putting them on every door :)


  1. I'm in love with those doorknobs!! AMAZING! I'm loving the updates! Can't wait to see it in real life!

  2. I am so happy for you guys! It looks like you guys are having to do a whole lot of work. Mad props!!!! I can't wait to see the final product. It will be beautiful!!!!!
