It’s CRAZY that we’ve been working on this house for over three years now! It only seems like yesterday that we got the keys to the house – and immediately tore out the built-in bench in the old sunroom, and starting ripping down the wallpaper in the dining room. Every few months, when certain projects get too overwhelming to even think about, I look back at the photos I took when we first bought the house and I realize just how much we’ve gotten done.
Almost a year ago we finished renovating our 70s-wood-paneled-sunroom-turned-family-room and I shared a before and after here on the blog. Well, more like a before and empty-room-after, which, let’s be honest, is boring!
First – Happy Saturday! We’ve had several men working on our house for the last two weeks residing our house. (!!) The old siding was rotted and peeling beyond repair. We also were able to knock out that awkward window in our shower and side right over it! All this to say, they are working right outside of the window I’m sitting in front of and I feel a little rude. So this post will be short today.
Earlier this spring I posted another dresser that I was tackling – my mom’s dresser that she had when she was a kid.
Once upon a time, people loved knotty wood wall paneling, drop ceilings and linoleum floors. And strange uncomfortable built-in benches.
I must say, this wood paneling was in GREAT shape and really quality stuff. Part of me hated taking it down, but Moose convinced me *and he was right, per usual* that we needed to re-insulate this room.
As I mentioned here, I promised to do a before and after kitchen post. We’ve been enjoying our new kitchen! Last night I made scones in preparation for tomorrow’s Irish celebration! You can find the recipe for scones I posted last year here.
This weekend I’m going to make Corned Beef and Cabbage for the first time – we’ll see how it goes! And a Happy St. Patrick’s Day at that!
And now, down to the kitchen nitty-gritty. As I said in my last kitchen reveal post, we’ve spent a solid 10 months renovating our kitchen and we are done with phase I. SUPER exciting.
