We have arrived, along with lots of snow! We have already had to shovel the driveway four times; also we had to buy a shovel. We are loving it here, so quiet compared to downtown. Jeff is learning to use the GO Transit system, and I'm getting used to the big empty house. We have been doing lots of unpacking and organizing, but we also jumped right in to one reno project: a door for our master bathroom! More on that project later. For now, here is quick (messy) tour of the house a couple of days after moving in. This might be the only time you will see my place messy, my OCD is kicking in fast. So, here is the before shots of our place before we revamp and decorate. I can't believe we are already here!
We are thinking of adding a large mirror on the left side, and getting a nice bench and table for the right side.
This is going to become the entertainment room. We are thinking of moving those book cases to this side of the fireplace and making that the TV area. Then over on this side put in a games table. I think it's going to be really cosy and a well used room.
This room needs some work, the carpet and walls are in rough shape. We are hoping to replace the carpet in this room, and across the hall soon. We are going to remove those bookshelves and add some side tables and lamps. We want to paint soon, and get some new blankets for the bed. Then our guests will never want to leave!
This room is a big o' mess right now. It is going to become Jeff's office and music room. It will also house our home gym, and maybe an extra place for overnight guests.
This bathroom is...OK. It could use a redo, but it is currently low on our list. I have no idea what I want to do in here as of yet.
From afar this kitchen looks beautiful. However, up close it's lacking in a lot of glam and has practically no efficiency. I can't wait to make this into my dream kitchen!
This is the showcase room. Other then paint and decor not much needs to happen. However, we are need of a dinning room table!
I'd like to modernize this bathroom. Rip out the sink area and put in a free standing sink and a funky mirror. Then we need to paint the room and get some accessories for it.
This room basically just needs to be set up and painted. It is going to become my photography studio/art room/office.
I love our bedroom, it is so cosy and the fireplace makes it feel so luxurious. We need a bed frame (that's just a mattress on the floor) and new side tables. Then basically just paint and decorate.
For now this bathroom works just fine (except that it didn't have a door! But we have already added one in). Eventually I'd like to rip the whole bathroom out and make it a beautiful retreat.
Lots of projects to undertake, some more of a priority then others. It's exciting to think about! Keep tuned in for the future changes we will make in the new year.
