My wife and I are finally getting to renovations inside the house.
I must say that we have been in our house for five years now and have done almost nothing, except for repaint the dining room and kitchen and fix up my daughter's room. We have slapped some paint through our living room but it still honestly looks like crap. We've been spending all our extra money paying off stuff so we are just about to the point we can renovate without having to go into debt. Woohoo!!! Yea us!!!
We finally got our bedroom colors together and bought paint, bedding, and lamps. Next week we will paint the bedroom white with a blue accent wall. With all of the new furniture we have, that should make the room look really good until we take out a sliding glass door that used to be the door to the porch from the master bedroom. The previous owner enclosed the porch to make a sunroom, that I've since repainted, put down padded flooring and made it into my daughter's playroom (of course it was my weight room before she was born).
After we finish the bedroom, we are repainting the living room, taking out a half french door that opens into the playroom and possibly building an arch there. Then we will install some recessed lighting, rebuild that window valance at the front of the room, repaint the walls (including brick), new mantle, and that should just about finish out that room. Once that is finished, we get to install new carpet throughout the house. But, that looks to be a little into the future as we don't want to charge this crap up on the credit cards.
