Almost a year later, we are getting towards the end of the renos in the house.
One of the bigger jobs was the staircase...
Ugly carpet. So much to change!
And Tristan didn't help...
...he decided to gnaw on the poorly-installed drywall!
First the carpet came off.
Then the floors were all stripped and refinished.
Walls were painted and we got a new shelving unit built.
Then the pièce de résistance. Our friend Tammy stripped and refinished the bannister...
She will killing me for posting her picture, but she looks great and so does the staircase. Sophie loves Auntie Tammy.
Then the walls and stairs were painted...
And the wainscoting put in and painted. So happy with all the results!
Now the kitchen is being done.
Goodbye, wallpaper! After this, the only wallpaper left will be in my office, and it's going too.
The wallpaper is being painted over, because it's a can of worms under there. Panelling on some walls, unfinished drywall on others, 105-year-old plaster on others!
And we had French doors and a wall put over the piano room entrance so we can get a pull-out couch and use it as an extra guest room.
It's been a long haul but we're getting there. Still want to get all the downstairs floors refinished. Old houses!
Have a great weekend.
