The family room in my renovation house is so cozy, my favorite room except for the kitchen. Lots of new fresh paint, the floors (like everywhere) got sandblasted and stained and new black hardware.  I also got rid of the wood blinds to get a more modern look and also to let the light in!

Wall color// SW7669  I see on the pictures the grey looks a little green tone, but it’s not. All white// Bright white. The chimney is painted in bright white as well, but with some special paint made for fireplaces.

I liked their custom made rug, I decided to keep that one!

Have a wonderful weekend!!

I got some bad news Sunday morning, my buyer pulled the offer… So the house is back on the market. I thought everything was good and all set, but nope they change their mind. I’m most upset that we missed two Sundays that we could have had open house.

Well I’m sure a new lucky buyer will come soon!

 

 

Basement – Before & After

In this area we changed the floor plan. Got rid of a closet to the left, moved the big pipe, moved the door to the toilet and added a laundry room (that you see all the way in there).

1G6A2341

Toilet// Toto  Mirror// Ikea   Walls// SW7669 Summit Gray, and the old retro sink I decided to keep. Dark grey tile from Virginia Tile. All trim// Bright white

1G6A2347

Walls// SW7648 Big Chill

1G6A2352

1G6A2354

I reused some of the old kitchen cabinets for the laundry room. Counter top, knobs, sink and faucet all from Ikea. Walls// same as the bathroom SW Big Chill. Let me know if you want the info about the vinyl floor or carpet.

I don’t miss the green walls and petrol carpet here :)

I need to take more and new pictures of the rest of the house. I don’t know what I did that day (except that i’m blaming the weather and it was dark… hehe, but all pictures are a little blurry… don’t like that!

Something old, Something new!

I just love my old books, that I bought for $20 at my renovation house, the day they had estate sale. Now when I staged the house I brought them back to the very same shelfs. The brass decor star/thing is new from Target. It’s always a good idea to mix new and old things!

Yesterday was so awesome and so much fun with a pool party. Today- office day. A big pile of paper that needed to get organized and bills to pay. Not so awesome and no fun at all!! But at least a great feeling when you are done :)

Now time for The Kardashian’s. Hubby thinks I should watch something more educational than that, hehe! Oh well, I think it’s very entertaining and I can just relax while watching that show, sometimes that’s what you need, right!

Before – The old dining room:

After – A mud hall (grov-ingång):

I found this piece of furniture at West Elm. The baskets are from Home Goods. Pillow and bag, oldies from my house!

1G6A2218.jpg

Coat & shoe rack and wardrobe// Ikea

1G6A2216.jpg

We moved the previous door from the kitchen and instead we took some space from the garage to build a new entryway.

 

 

The kitchen before & after

The house is finally all done!!

I’m so happy about that, but I’m mad at the weather. I was planning to take photos yesterday, but it was so dark. And today it’s even worse and rainy!! But I did my best.

And this is pictures from before:

The wall is now gone between the kitchen and the old dining room. That made the kitchen much bigger plus I made a mud hall (groventre) instead of keeping the dining room.

More to come!!

The house will be on the market tomorrow!

 

 

The new kitchen

1G6A1566

From my renovation house and the new kitchen! It’s so close to be all done. Can’t wait to get the hood, stove and fridge/freezer installed and to get rid of all mess and dust!!

1G6A1568

The tile is up!! My first plan was to do white herringbone (fiskbensmönster), but decided to save some money on that and ended up with this instead, that I also think looks really good!

1G6A1572

Cabinets and handles// Ikea   Countertop// Zodiac quarts, color London Sky (kvartskomposit) I can really recommend quarts if you are redoing your kitchen. Not sensitive at all, compare to real marble, that stains and scratches so easy.

1G6A1576

The details, LOVE!!! Here I splurged some money though ;) These are the pieces I had to wait for so long, but it was worth the wait, I’m so happy with the result. Love costume made pieces!

1G6A1577

More pictures to come in a few days when it’s completed!!

 

Renovation update

1G6A1306.jpg

Powder room, almost done! The electrician has some more work to do.

1G6A1296.jpg

The crown molding for the kitchen, along with two other pieces we’ve been waiting for a long time, are finally here. They are spray painted and color matched with the cabinets. That company was cleary not the fastest on the planet… however I’m happy we now can finish the kitchen. Will show you the kitchen later this week.

1G6A1294

Love the foyer. It’s almost completed. A little more painting left to do.

1G6A1268.jpg

Basement carpet and laundry vinyl floor, all done!

1G6A1273.jpg

I’m reusing some cabinets from the old kitchen in the laundry room to save a few $$. I think it will look really good whenever the walls are painted and the counter top is installed.

1G6A1275.jpg

1G6A1279.jpg

My lovely painters, please COME BACK ASAP!!

1G6A1266.jpg

What color?? First I was thinking white walls, but since I’m selling the house, I think a lighter grey is a safer choice…

 

1G6A1308

The yard is messy again after last week’s storm. Easy to fix! Just a phone call away, haha :)

Time to keep working! I’m planning to stage the house whenever is done, so I need to figure that out.
