As I mentioned here, we had our bathroom re-done. Since we were buying porcelain tiles for the bathroom anyway, we just bought a little extra and had the same flooring installed in our foyer.
The construction made last week go by really slowly, and Claire was not terribly fond of all of the banging and sawing, but let me tell you, it was worth it!
The old bathroom, complete with yellow counter (including seashell-shaped – say that 5 times fast – sinks), toilet, and tub à la 70′s:
The new bathroom:
And the foyer, which is now completely updated thanks to the new flooring:
A few weeks ago, we also changed the lights in the kitchen and dining areas.
The old kitchen light didn’t bother me as much as it did Neal, who really seemed to detest it. I’m sure it also bothered our tall friends!
The light in the dining area was not our style at all, and while we use the ceiling fan in our room and occasionally in Claire’s room, we never did in here.
The new kitchen light is not only obstacle-free for our
giant tall friends, but it also made the kitchen seem larger.
And the new light, complete with dimmer switch for nice romantic dinners, is much more elegant.
As nice as it is to do updates, I hope that’s it for renovations for a little while!
