New Home Update

This is what our dining room is going to look like. We have been ripping up carpet since Friday. Unfortunately, it's hard to do it with a 2 year old running around. Luckily, we have been able to get help watching him while we work. So far, Xavier's room, the office/guest room, the living & dining rooms, and the 1st floor hallway have all been painted.

The house had carpet in every room-- literally. LITERALLY. All the carpet was ripped out first, so we have to install quarter round. There were little staples all over the place. It was so frustrating. Luckily the hardwood floors are beautiful and worth the effort..

So here are some photos of what the house looks like now. The before photos are in this old post. We did a lot, but no major wall-bashing demo or anything like that.

We still need to bring his real bed & the ABC rug over.
We must unpack the rest of his awesome toys & books.

Ignore that TV tray. I have my eye on a nice accent table.
That little lamp will be gone along with it.

Next up: crown molding and wainscoting.
