my last 2 weeks in pictures

After recover from a wicked sinus invasion I spent the last couple of weeks working side-by-side with Geo on some home improvements.

painted walls and hutch in the dining room

painted kitchen, removed all upper cabinets (for good), and got new counter tops

held our 15th annual Oscars party with ballots, food, and prizes

had our class picture taken for the school yearbook

woke up to a flooded basement bedroom, and while the excavator was out repairing our main water line from the street to the house we had him remove our old cracked walkway

kitchen cabinets went from maroon to white.  can you say "primer?"

quite a few nights out for dinner with the kitchen torn up

Cabinets removed forever? Where will you put things?

I'm still in love with the red door on your house.

Yes, where will you put things?

I love all the color in the dining room.

You have been busy! I love the red door. I really wish I didn't live in an HOA community so I could do whatever I wanted with our door.

I love "picture journals"--and your photos always give a great sense of meaning.

You've been busy! Everything looks great!

You've been working so hard! Very impressive :)

Glad you got over the sinus invasion! It all looks great! Good luck getting the sidewalk replaced. Hopefully the weather will be decent.

Love your TK sign for the yearbook.

I'm curious how your cabinet situation is going to end up, jealous of your remodeling fun (especially the sidewalk--mine is falling apart), and happy to see all of your pictures!

Well, you have been a busy bee. I am impressed.

Joanie | February 27, 2012 at 10:17 PM

Wow, you have been really busy, but have so much to show for all your hard-work.Hopefully soon, you can just sit, relax and enjoy it.

You are a lazy thing aren't you?

Love the cabinets. Looks like some serious fun.

I'd love to see MORE pictures of your kitchen...with the whole upper cabinet thing gone.

GREAT Job from what I've seen. A kitchen redo is a Huge undertaking.But How rewarding for you eh....
and hey, resturant outings are fun

WOW. That's a busy last two weeks! But I love how your kitchen looks and the new paint (and that awesome miror) are gorgeous! The fact that you have a red door just makes me adore you.
