All moved in!

Well, for the most part..still have a few things left to grab from the apartment...

The downstairs is looking like a brand new house (now that we have our fresh new rugs installed!!!) and we are loving it:

My office/music room

Found some great white accessories to "jazz" everything up :)

Stay tuned for more updates next week: finished fireplace and master bedroom!

All of our paint colors are Valspar:

For the wall w/ the fireplace in the living room

(Vanilla Steam) For the other walls in the LR, plus the hallway

The blues are for the kitchen (Sonic Sky-lighter for the walls/Billow-darker for the backsplash)
Bottom right is Paris Mint (looks better in person) for our bedroom
The white is Woodlawn Dewkist which will be for the trim/fireplace/bathroom

Voyage (for the basement family room and upstairs office)

More progress!

Another weekend of hard work!

(I included the "befores" so you can see the transformation process)

(Brandon worked on removing the gross paint above the black ledge, but most of it didn't want to budge, so he sanded the rest so we can prime over it and then paint)

The wood ledge will eventually be primed and painted as well

All that's left is the very bottom!

We removed the wallpaper behind the fridge and some more adhesive/wallpaper one one of the kitchen walls, but it's not all that exciting to look at..later this week we'll be painting in the rooms that were primed over the weekend so our new carpet can be installed shortly after that!
