Before and After Pictures - so far

I am still in the middle of remodeling and updating my home. Yes, I know...it was supposed to be completed by the time I returned from Italy, but you know how remodeling goes...it really never gets done when you hope. I think we are a little over halfway there so I'm sharing photos of the progress.

OUTSIDE
I had the off-white color changed to sandstone and put in all new windows.
Before & After







NEW FLOORS
The carpet has been removed and replaced with hardwood floors on the main floor. The upstairs carpet was removed and replaced with a new berber.
Before and After









UPDATED BATHROOMS
The bathrooms were gutted and replaced with a new look in the master and the kids bath.







BEDROOMS
The bedrooms have been repainted and each bedroom now has a mounted flatscreen TV on the wall so all my out-of-the-area visitors who stay over night can pretend they are in a hotel and watch whatever they want. I will also place a chocolate on the pillow. I won't guarantee it will be half eaten, however.







WHAT IS STILL BEING DONE
Everything on the main level (the kitchen, living room, bathroom, and garage) is a chaotic mess. When those rooms get finished, I'll share them as well. AND THEN you can let me know when you're coming for one of our slumber parties!!
