This is kind of an update to my previous thread: My weekend (remodel - Image Heavy)
Seeing as it has been a while, and these updates are new, I figured a new thread was the way to go.
We are not yet finished, of course, but have done a lot. I love remodeling, and making places "ours" especially considering we full-time.
Anyway, on to the new updates!
First, the carpet.
The original Carpet. Ugly worn blue turned aqua:
A picture from shortly after we moved in.
New Carpet. A nice, plush gray:
Hauling the entire load home after pre-cutting at our storage unit.
All laid out.
The transition from carpet to hard flooring (with a spoiler of our new kitchen/entry flooring).
Old floor. "Best" picture I had of it:
Ewwwwww. Tiles coming up, terrible vent (bent, rusty, nasty).
New Floor. Peel and stick paneling. Didn't realize it was peel and stick when we purchased it, but it stuck well, and love the color. Weathered gray with hints of brown:
One of the few installation pictures I took.
Very good picture of the color.
Enjoy the clutter!
With the new vent.
Complete, with the finished transition.
New blinds. I don't really have a picture of the old ones, but they were the same color as the shades in the bedroom (visible in my other topic linked above). I only have the one picture of the new blinds right now, but it was to show them off. A nice light gray:
Yay clutter again! Got rid of the valances above the windows as well.
Finally located a rock guard for the front window. It did not have one when we purchased the TT. $125 before taxes, new with a few scuffs on the metal:
We feel that it makes it look a lot more complete
Couch. Just like the a lot of things, we didn't really have any before pictures, because they sucked, to say the least. The first picture shows the original color contrasted with the new. We recovered the base and back, and completely replaced the padding and covering on the seat. It was so worn and uncomfortable. We looked around for another couch (even a regular one that I could modify the underside on) to no avail. The new covering is black micro-suede:
Contrast between old and new. Ewwww & Owwww.
Setting up for new foam.
Ready to go! FYI we cleaned up under the couch after I took this picture.
All attached. 3/4" hog rings. I sewed on ribbon on all edges for extra support to keep the hog rings from tearing through the fabric when the couch is in use.
Finished and laid down. The old one made you want to fall off. Not this one!
End product. Much better looking and MUCH more comfortable.
Those are the new updates. We are about to redo the countertops. We have everything cut, we just need to attach the Formica, cut out the sink openings, and switch them out.
Then we have to finish tearing off the wallpaper so we can cover up the old nail/screw holes and paint.
