Remodel Update 4

Well guys we're in the final stretch! We're seeing the light at the end of the tunnel but we definitely are not done yet.  All of the custom cabinetry still needs to be installed and there is A LOT of touch up work that has to be done (never, ever rush your painters...really bad idea). But we are getting closer and closer. Carpet was installed on Friday (I'll include photos in the next remodel post) and for the most part the painting is done and looks really good. It shouldn't be much longer until we are completely moved in! Last night was actually our first night sleeping in the house and it has started to feel more like home.

The banister was completely redone. If you go back to this post you'll see the original color. BIG change.

The finished product! You'll see it with the new carpet in the next post which really brings it all together.

The color we picked for the walls is a rich warm gray. The colors is called Mindful Gray and it is a Sherwin Williams paint color. It has made the home feel much more elegant and clean than the original tan color.

The color we chose for the master is called Misty and it is a Sherwin Williams colors as well. It is a very calming, relaxing blue which is just what we wanted for our bedroom. It also pulls some gray tones which works well with the rest of the home and the master bathroom which was painted SW Agreeable Gray.

Here's the office and you can see the new color on the floor. I absolutely LOVE it. I actually think refinishing the floors has been the most painless and rewarding project in the house. The company that did it was great to work with and the final product was exactly what we were looking for. They also killed the herringbone inlay in the entry. As you can tell I was really satisfied with them.

Below you can check out how the fireplace is coming along. New limestone tiles have been used for the surround and hearth and we've added some finish work to the top of the shaft. The painters, however, did not realize that the WHOLE shaft should have been painter white. This is one of the lingering paint issues I referred to before. In all honesty though, the majority of the paint looks great. There are just a few areas that need a lot of additional attention. The mantle and bookcases should be coming this week. I'm very excited to get those in!

Here's a brief cameo from Nic! As you can tell he's really excited that the remodel is almost over.

Stay tuned for the next update which will probably be my last before I do all of the finished product photos.

Merry Christmas! I am so excited to go snuggle up with my husband as soon as I get home from work today and start really enjoying my Christmas break. May you and your family be happy and safe during this holiday season. Thanks for reading!
