Upstairs Done!

Wine of the Day: Angry Orchard - Crisp Apple Hard Cider

The house is finally ours!!!

As of April 16th, the previous owners were moved out and we started to move in!  There have been some major changes going on inside in the past two weeks.  We started with having our painter, Larry, come in and paint the stairway, master bedroom and master bathroom.  We are doing most of the work ourselves but with the vaulted ceilings we just figured it would be easier to hire someone with a tall enough ladder.  He also added crown molding in the stairway and upstairs hall.

The master bedroom had been a beige color paint with some drywall damage and a tv attached to the wall just inside the door.  The bathroom was a dark pink color.

Now the master bedroom is painted a deep plum color (Sherwin Williams - Enigma) and the bathroom is a nice light neutral gray (Sherwin Williams - Popular Gray).  Larry even painted inside the walk in closet for us. 

The stairway was painted Popular Gray, crown molding was added and finally a new light fixture was installed. I don't think the stairs had been painted in the past but now they seem brighter and the fixture is much more our style. 

We are extremely happy with the work that Larry did and the fact that hiring him allowed us to focus on the main floor.  Also, big thank you to my mom for all of her help!

Up next, the adventures in wallpaper removal.
