The New House

Here's what's up at the new house...

The basement finishing is moving along steadily; the walls are studded, the heating is installed and the what looks like miles of wiring has been finished. I need to get cracking on picking bathroom finishes and hardwood flooring.

The painter has started on the main floor, painting over the greenish hall, living room and dining room.

 (That's Ben Moore Balboa Mist)

I am still hating the back splash and can't wait to change it, but I am having a hard time deciding on tile.

If you have forgotten, here are the areas of the kitchen I hope to change...minus the granite. (I am not smitten with it, but if I suggested changing it this may turn from a design blog to a divorce blog!)

 Read about it here.

 I have purchased a new stove, faucet and hardware, still need new lighting.

I am off to see if I can find any tile for the bathroom...and I still need to think seriously about window treatments. YIKES! There are quite a few windows and I was still hoping to have enough money left over to eat, so if any of you in the Toronto area have any suggestions for sources, I am all ears.
Thanks for the help.


  1. For occupations like this, I profoundly suggest you don't pay a store. Your work of art contractual worker ought to have no issues financing the venture he is thinking about. New Port Richey house painters

  2. How much does it cost to hire our Orland Park Kitchen Cabinet Painting Company? prices vary accordingly.
    Our professional Orland Park kitchen cabinet painters are skilled.
    Rather than replacing your cabinets, it’s much more cost effective to bring in kitchen cabinets painting contractors from JRT Painting to revitalize your cabinets look.
    There are many reasons for hiring kitchen cabinet refinishing companies in Orland Park.
    You could try painting your cabinets, but without a kitchen cabinet painting service, it’s unlikely you’ll get the look you want.You need the right combination of preparation, product and spray equipment to get the right look. The point of doing it yourself is to save money, and with the amount you would pay to get the right equipment for a professional kitchen cabinet look, you would probably eat up any potential savings.
    Cost for Orland Park professional cabinet painters may vary, but if you find the right Orland Park kitchen cabinet refinishers, it is often worth it.
