I thought it could be nice if we posted a running thread of the updates we’re doing on our new houses and apartments!
We’ve done a lot, but here’s the current project… along with replacing floors
It’s getting there! We’re still trying to figure out a color… any suggestions? This is the Laundry room
So, let’s see some before and midway or after images!

Oh, fun! Your house is so pretty, and will be really gorgeous with your updates. I think the hardwood will really open up the rooms, too. What color is most of your furniture that will be in there?
I’ll have to take some before pictures when we get into the apartment on June 1st. We won’t be painting anything but the bedroom (it’s BROWN right now) but we’ll be doing major cleaning and bringing in our own furniture. Right now it’s so cluttered with the current tenants’ things that it looks teeny tiny.

We’ve been doing lots of stuff lately, but the one I have pictures of is replacing the lighting in our kitchen.
Here’s the before:
And here’s the after (with a bulb missing):

I don’t have any good pics yet cuz my camera cord is broken, but I hope to take some with my sisters after we close next week so I can post! The floors and painting have already been done, so now we just have to do a few things before we can move in

Great jobs everyone! We’ve done A LOT of work on our house since we bought it in August. However, the first and big one was gutting the kitchen. I can’t capture it well in pictures though. Our door and trim are now painted with a new trim color- more of an ivory than the stark white it was before- that was an expensive mistake!

What a great thread! I’ll definitely be checking back on this one. I’ve been meaning to take pictures of our new fence. Maybe this will prompt me to do it. 🙂

LOVING what I’m seeing so far! Isn’t amazing what some paint, light fixtures, and TLC can do?!
I can’t wait to post pictures later (late tonight) of yesterday’s work! We started laying the wood laminate floors… and holy cow, the master bedroom is looking AMAZING! I’m in love with the floors we chose for the bedrooms.
On the downside, the quote we got apparently wasn’t added right because we wound up spending about $1,000 more on the materials than the quote was. Not only that, but it’s looking like they didn’t even allot us enough! We’re probably going to have to pick up more wood! grrrr

We did recessed lighting.
AFTER! It is SOO much nicer. My FI just used the holes that were already there for the fans and put lights there and then we put in a few more holes/lights.

I love before & after pics!
@caszos: LOVE the lighting, what a difference!
@KLP2010: This isn’t my laundry room, but I just love this color for a mud/laundry room becasue it feels so clean 🙂
