As some of you may know, we started renovations on my attic. And when I say "we", I mean my husband and his crew. Actually, not even my husband. Just his crew.
I posted back in September when it first started and I would post the link but for some odd reason, Typepad only shows the main page addy whenever I go to any page so that would be pointless. But this is what it looked like when it first started:
The insulation had just gone up, along with the framing for the drywall.
Then in a few weeks, it looked like this:
Can I just tell you how much Charlie LOVES being up there? He cries every time we leave. He's such a punk.
So all the insulation is up and ready for the drywall...
As always, with drywall comes drywall dust. It was pretty much everywhere in the house. But a small price to pay...
And then a few weeks of sanding and sanding and more sanding, the paint finally went up:
I chose a granny smith apple green just for the accent walls. The rest of the walls stayed a nice neutral.Then in came my flooing:
I wanted a dark, almost black wood for my floors and when i found out how much that was going to cost, I settled for a nice laminate in a brownish color. This was probably the hardest decision I've had to make. Probably because it was the most costly one too.
The trim is up and so are the lights:
I have four of these babies along one wall and two on the opposite side. I'm no longer going to be living in a cave! This makes me SO happy. I may have over compensated for my current space's lack of light. I think the amount of light I have up there could light a small town.
So who's ready to come over and scrap with me?
