SO much has been going on at the house this week, I don’t even know where to start! So, I’m just gonna throw it all at you randomly.
First up, the paint is almost done and I’m loving the colors (you can see them all here). This is the mudroom blue:
and our master bath and bedroom grayish, greenish, blueish color (so dark in this photo, but gorgeous in person!)
Oh and our master bath! I haven’t shown the cabinets painted in here, they are the same deep blue as our kitchen island. And yes, the countertops are in too!
Speaking of countertops, the kitchen counters also got installed and I love them! They are quartz – the color is Mysterio I think? But I can’t remember the brand at the moment… I will find out and tell you when I share the final reveal pics
I talked about my kitchen plans changing a little bit last week – it’s not a huge change, but I nixed all the butcher block counters. I’m pretty bummed about it.
We could not find a wood that looked good with our wood floors. The guys didn’t want to stain it, because it wouldn’t be food safe without using a sealer that would make the finish glossy. Everything was either too yellow or orange and rather than having the woods clash, I decided to do away with the idea even though I love the look. So the island will be the same quartz and the pantry will get a soapstone looking laminate.
The basement wet bar got the same laminate and it looks really nice, plus I don’t need to worry about my kids ruining it like I would have if we went with the butcher block. It is super dusty down here, but I’m excited to style those shelves. The brick patterned square tile is a fun touch and bonus these tiles are even cheaper than subway tile. Also sneak peek of our wood flooring, I can’t even with these floors; I love them SO much! You can check out my post on them here, but I will be sharing more reveal posts on them soon!
Back upstairs, they finished the ceilings, and I could lay on the floor and stare at them all day.
OH, and they also started the fireplace stone. It looks really dark in these photos becuase its raining out, but they are going to get a light grout which will lighten it all up a lot.
Last thing, the kids flooring is in! You may remember it from our old sunroom, I loved this flooring so much I had to go for it again. They are laminate, but they look so real. I love the white and grey tones with the pale blue walls in my daughter’s room.
Ok, I think that’s all I have to report at the moment. The driveway and patio are done too, but it is pouring outside, so I’ll have to share outdoor shots later. They are laying the rest of the flooring this week and the electrician is coming next week to hang light fixtures! Gah, we are like this close!
