House Preview

Here is your first preview of the work we have done on the house. It is not terribly exciting, but I like the way it turned out. It is the hallway leading to the boys room, bathroom, and nursery. I found an example of this on the internet this summer and talked Travis into doing it in our house. Anyway, here are the pictures:

Before picture of the hallway.

During our renovations. The walls hadn't been painted yet and you can see we broke out the tile and tore the carpet out.

Installing the beadboard.

Travis did all of the work himself. He built a shelf and attached it to the beadboard. I wanted a ledge to put family pictures on.

Final product! I used picture frames I already had and filled them with my favorite family photos.

Looking towards the bathroom. You can see the wood floors we installed through most of the house. We still need to change out the hallway light fixture.

More pictures

You can see the new doors we installed. You can also see that we painted all the wood trim in the entire house.

I really like how it turned out. Good job, Travis!
