A few days later ... it's mostly done

We were mostly done after just under 2 1/2 weeks (12 1/2 work days). I say mostly because we're still waiting for the shower doors for our ensuite shower to come in.

I'm going to start doing before and after shots so you can see how it looks. We don't have art and pictures up yet (lazy us!) so I might wait a few more days so I can show you what it looks like with the art.

This pictures is actually from around February 3rd or 4th - mostly done - you can see the bright blue laundry bathroom that I haven't shared with you yet :)

Princess is wondering what's going on!

Day 7: February 1, 2011

The living room is now a blue-grey. I'd been hoping for a little more grey than it turned out, but overall, I like the effect:

The main bathroom is now a grey-mauve and the new flooring (vinyl) is laid:

It's coming!

Day 5: January 28

Blue bedroom:

This may be too blue. I'm still undecided if I like this colour.

The forest green and beige bathroom:

The basement with its final coat:

It's not quite this turquoise in person.

And what was my favourite discovery of the day, the front entry:

And how very appropriate for me to share this on Valentine's Day, although rest assured this bright entry will be enjoyed all year!

The beige ensuite (with me in pyjamas barely caught in the mirror):

The basement has one coat of paint:

Another shot of the basement:

The main bathroom is beige and hunter green ... the mirror is down:

Lots of splatches, filling in holes in the front entry:

Pictures coming soon

The last 2 weeks have been a flurry of home-repair stuff going on - walls painted, vanities changed, new backsplash put in ... so in the coming days, I'll post about it.

Oh, and we hired someone to do it all. Otherwise, we'd spend all our spare time for months doing this work!
