Hello and Happy New Year’s Eve!
Did you have a nice Christmas? We spent a couple of super fun days at my mom’s in Florida and then had a nice, low-key Christmas Eve and Christmas Day here at home with Kevin’s side of the family. This week, we’re slowly but surely un-decking the halls, but because it finally feels like a fun time to do it, I thought I’d snap and share a few photos of our Christmas decorating this year:
We’re still not done adding reclaimed wood and hardware to those cabinets in the second photo, and we’ve still got a few more corbels to add to the doorways in the photo above (see the one there in the upper right hand corner of that pic?), but we’ll get to those projects when we get to them. Right now we’re focusing our attention on a few things upstairs! 🙂
The new flooring is being laid as I type, and then we’ve got some reeeeeally fun bunk beds to assemble for Steevenson tomorrow.
I’ll blog about the whole room re-do once we’ve got it pulled together. I’m working with Beddy’s Bedding and Lull Mattresses on the project, so although I usually don’t feel the need to rush these kinds of things, I’m contractually obligated to finish this room makeover in January- ha!
Oh, and if you missed my first post about the flooring, we fell in love with Swiftlock Laminate in the color Antique Hickory after seeing it in Jess Wasserman’s house on Instagram. We used it in the Bungalow Barn, and then on the first floor of our house, and now we’re finally getting it installed upstairs. Here’s a photo that shows how we’re just layering it right on top of our existing (damaged, discolored) engineered hardwood:
Unfortunately, it’s discontinued now, but I bought up every box I could find (across the whole nation!) so we’d have extra in case we ever spring a leak and need to replace any. If you’re in the market for something similar, I blogged about some alternate options here: Affordable, Durable, Easy-To-Install (and Remove!) Flooring
I look forward to sharing some more photos of our progress next year!
Get it? ‘Cause tomorrow is….okay bye. 😉
PS- I edited the photos in this post by playing around with my friend Liz’s Lightroom presets. I love the layer of bright n’ cozy they add!
