The downstairs bathroom was ugly, linolium, overly huge mirror, and skanky lighting. After spending forever peeling wallpaper, we put in tile floor and a pedastal sink. We wanted it to look nice since it was the guest powder room that our friends always clog.

We painted the house to seal the water damage and to make it pretty.

Painted the master bedroom. Finally got bedroom furniture in fall 2005

We wanted to reorganize the closet since it was inefficiently designed.We decided to paint it the same color as the bedroom for practice. We tiled the floor and then continued into the master bathroom. We finally put in wire shelving in an L-shape to add plenty of storage.

Basically the master closet spilled into the entire bathroom. We continued the tile throughout the entire area. Too much work

'Ugh, me like garage' This was Joe's man place and the stupid shelf had to go.There was only one outlet in the entire garage, so I wired up some outlets and put in a brighter light. I put in a workbench and created some sturdier more efficient shelves. This used to be a two car garage until Jen got a TrailBlazer.

For an early Christmas gift, we decided to get new berber carpet...that and the fact that the old stuff was the original nasty carpet. We had to "de-Melvinize" the office by ripping up the carpet and painting primer to kill the stains. Other than clearing out the rooms, the dudes at Lowe's took just 1 day to install everything. So nice and new smelling!

We decided to paint the office 'Mediterranean Sun', sort of a classy rust color. This project took a LOT less time than the others...thankfully!

A quick paint job helped cover up the nasty peach color from before. We are still planning on giving it the proper decore...in due time

Major work on the kitchen included peeling wallpaper and painting the walls and trim. We also covered the old floor with sticky vinyl tile and eventually will get new black countertop.

Paint and finally finished up the front room.
