Dining room!

We're still not sure if we're going to paint the bead board (white) or leave it.  

Here are the before and after photos!

Backsplash is done

The kitchen is coming along!  We have some trim work yet to finish, put some "bricks" behind the fridge where they left drywall for some reason and we need to finish the floor.

Here's the before and after to compare:

We are also making progress in the hall.  These are our new old doors.  You can see the beadboard too.  The doors came from an old farm as part of an estate-they were in the barn for a LONG time, we got them before a local guy that makes benches, corner cabinets, etc did.  We will have to add a little wood to the top and bottom of one to make it fit because we can't shrink the frame down.  That's the one that's not hung yet.  Love the REAL crackle, although it will need repainted to hide the new wood.

The first brick panel is up!

The first panel is in.  Needs to be trimmed out, but it's a step in the right direction!

Odds n Ends

Shutter dogs have arrived!  These will hold the shutters closed on the "closet doors" in the bedroom

Really "awesome" job on the wiring in the kitchen.  NOT.  Rather than drill through the studs they just ran it on the outside and worked the drywall around it.

I'll get some more pics as we get going.  Faux brick is in the "house", as is the beadboard for the dining room and hall.  Also, wallpaper has arrived for the hall.  Fun stuff coming up here!
