It has been a LONG time since I have participated in Seven Quick Takes, but I thought it would be an easy way to give you all an update on our addition and kitchen remodel.
That big black sheet of plastic that was blocking off the addition came down the other day so the tape and texture could be completed. It is so exciting to see it all start coming together!
Hubby and I need to have all the painting done by Monday. We started yesterday and, with some help from my brother and sister-in-law (They picked up more paint, watched the kids, and even took the boys to Hockey!) and a super thoughtful care package from a friend (Which kept our children occupied the rest of the time!), we were able to paint all day long.
We were able to finish all the primer and the ceilings, and today we’ll start working on the walls.
Oooh! I can’t wait to see how the paint turns out. I’m a little bit nervous and just praying that the colors I choose look okay. . . (Yes, Cathy, I’ve had plenty of headaches and even a couple panic attacks from making all these decisions!) We decided to keep things fairly simple and are sticking with two neutral colors for the walls . The New Dining Room and Living Room will be Wilmington Tan (Thank you Aimee and Helen for the suggestion!) and our Entry/Old Living Room, Bathroom, Laundry Room and Kitchen will all be Philadelphia Cream with some more of the Wilmington Tan as an accent on the fireplace wall.
We ordered all the flooring on Wednesday! The Dining and Living Room will all have an Engineered Wood Flooring. We decided on the 5″ Hampton Hickory Plank made by Mannington in the color: English Leather. We thought we would have it on Monday, but it’s actually not going to arrive until the 25th. Nevertheless, the addition should still be completed by the end of the month!
We found a tile for the kitchen, entry, bathroom and laundry room, made by United Tile. It’s their Mediterranea Bellagio Tile in Gold. It’s SO much prettier in person than in the picture below. We love that it looks like it has texture to it, but is actually smooth which should make cleaning a bit easier.
Okay . . . The baby just fell asleep for her morning nap, so it’s time for me to get back to painting! I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
