Remodeling - Part 2

The second installment of our remodeling job.  You can read the first one here.

Every time I go work on this house, I find at least ten other things that need to get done!  My husband says that we should just get done what we need to in order to move in.  However, I am afraid that if we don't get it all done before hand, then it will never get done.

At least it kind of looks like we have made some progress.  In part one I showed this bathroom completely gutted out. It's about done now.

Remember how we knocked out the closet to my daughter's room for the bathroom to be bigger. The shower/tub sits where her closet was. We built in those little cubby holes for towels and such.

The sun room (also known as the second reason (first was the oven) why I decided to move into this house)).  Still some of the owner's old furniture to move out;  I can see this room full of plant starts for my garden.  I would also like to get a dwarf lemon and orange tree to put in here!  :)

Everyone kept asking me what color I wanted to paint my son's room.  I told them to ask him, it's his room.  He chose white walls with John Deere green trim.  Of course, the only way to get John Deere green is to buy actual tractor paint.  We started painting some old furniture in the same green with Ag yellow trimming.  See that green and yellow dresser above? 

As you can see, his double windows open up into the sun room.

And so we move onto the master bedroom.  You can't see it in the picture, but there is a door to my left that leads out to the other side of the sun room.  And over there to the right of the closet is another door that leads to an office. 

We knocked the wall out between the office and my daughter's room so now you can loop between the two rooms through here.  I am going to put
some kind of shelving and rod unit in there to make her a little closet since we knocked out the original for the bathroom.  I have found that little girls need a closet!  You can see below the doorway we added.  That glass door leads out back to where I want to put my cutting garden.  I'll show more pictures of the yard and outside in part 3.

Every room has been painted except for the kitchen and my daughter's (above.)  My plan is to paint it the way it is painted in our house now (picture below.)  Those scallops were actually done with a quilting ruler!

As you can see, we've been pretty busy!  Hoping to get done and moved in soon.
