Graceland: While I'm Away

I am not at the house at all this week, and won't likely be able to get there until the end of next week due to a work trip and work. So I'm relying on my father to keep me apprised of what's going on (because I'm an impatient person and I hate missing out). So here are some photos he sent me today, when I asked if painting had started in earnest. Bear in mind that this is not the final paint color but primer, since the rooms were so colorfully painted before. The top photo was the purple dining room.

And below is the living room. The stove still needs to be removed and the fireplace painted, but you get the idea. And soon I'll have pictures to share of the rooms painted in the color I chose, which for the life of me I cannot remember the name of.

Until I return.

Graceland: The Kitchen Cabinets Arrived!!

The kitchen cabinets arrived today!! HEYO!! I have been worrying about this day for weeks - would the cabinets look good? Should we have gone with white shakers like we usually do? Finally I got to see what I'd chosen.

Graceland: A Particularly Adventurous Morning

It was an adventurous day today at Graceland. I wish so much that there'd been a film crew there to capture what went down because it was just ridiculous, the stuff of good tv. Nemo is with me this week while his mothers enjoy spring break in Iceland (le sigh). So he came to help me out.

Graceland: Opening Up The Staircase

This house was in the best shape of any other house we've renovated, I think that just has to be said looking at the photo below. Look at how beautiful those hardwoods are!

Graceland: Making a Master Closet

In the master bedroom there are two closets, one regular closet with sliding doors and one small, narrow closet (behind that door on the left). Down the hall was another, large closet, and it just seemed like too many doors in a small hallway so I suggested we combine the two closets since they were back to back.

My father worked from one side and I worked from the other removing the baseboards and drywall.
