Renovation update after Thanksgiving

This whole wall will be dark blue

Guest bathroom with that gorgeous blue tile floor without the grout

kitchen with countertop on. Some doors missing and finish work to be done. Window replaced in sunroom (on left). Dee and I are painting a funky cat mural as a backsplash in the kitchen. One cat will have a Perrier label collar and another will have a Coca-Cola collar - lots of reds and primary colors to offset the browns. Floor will be a slightly lighter shade of brown than the countertops (which actually do have a bit of sienna red in them)

The sheetrock people are there today along with the site supervisor. I'm going over tomorrow to lay out the shelves and hanging rods for the closets and laundry room. The painter will be there next week, and then the floors go down. We'll be in before Christmas. I may have my tree trimming party on Christmas Eve, but, so be it.

Sounds like nice warm friendly colors. Welcoming. Will pray you are in before Christmas in time to do the tree and decorating before Christmas Eve!

It's looking beautiful, sharecropper!

And I think a Christmas Eve tree-trimming party is ideal. Once my kids no longer believe in Santa, we are going to start putting the tree up on Christmas Eve. I'm sick of Christmas starting at Labor Day---we're going to do Advent with a vengeance as soon as I can get away with it... ;-)

I love those brown counter tops, and those lovely blue tiles.

Add my prayers that you will be in and settled before Christmas Eve.

This is moving right along!
I want to see pictures of the backsplash when you're finished.
