New House: New Project

We closed on the new house on August 2nd! Some move in pictures...

(crappy phone pics coming at ya!)

 Dining Room

Living Room


Powder room



The movers unloaded our stuff from Savannah that same day, and the flooring guys came the next day and started tearing out the downstairs carpet/vinyl. Of course, it came right up. The problem has been the glued down hardwoods in the foyer and dining area. It was both blued and stapled, and the glue is so thick, really well bonded. It's a messssssss. Yesterday, they got up the last of it. HOORAY! New hardwoods finally started being installed. YES!

Last week the painters came. We had originally planned to do the painting ourselves, but quickly realized it was too big of an undertaking. The ceilings are high and the stairwell alone would have killed me! So money well spent hiring out the work. They had the entire house painted in TWO days.
That would have easily taken me several months HA.

The main color is Sherwin Williams Big Chill.

Dining room is SW Moody Blue.

Master is SW Gray Matters.

Upstairs bath is SW Mountain Air, and Master Bath is SW Tradewind.

So, since the painting was finished, I have been trying to get upstairs put together. The girls room mainly since that's the most important next to the master (downstairs). My dad put together the crib and Evans's bed and hung curtain rods for me. Hooray. At least it's coming together up there.

Downstairs is chaos. Complete chaos. Sawdust and debris pretty much in every room.

Tile went down in the laundry/mudroom over the weekend and I really love it! It used to be vinyl, now its an easy to clean porcelain tile. What a difference!

So for now, it's mostly a hot mess at Houston House #4! But, we live for this renovation stuff, who am I kidding.

Love all the choices! We did (as in, someone else did it) all new flooring and paint before we moved in last year and it was the best decision I ever made. I just painted our stairwell, and 99 spindles later, I realized that was the worst decision I ever made. Hope to see the finished product next time we are in Cola!
