Catch up...Remodel

During last year we decided to remodel our living room/entry/dining room area. Our house is not huge and we wanted a more open feel. If you ever decide to remodel...DON'T, just move. Well maybe that is a little drastic but it isn't too far from the truth. We planned to do another part of the house too but after this decided we wanted to take a small remodel break! 

This used to be a closet....I don't have a before pic.

Did I mention we had popcorn ceilings...ugh the mess. 

We were all so ready for the mess to be gone. It even sucked up through the intake vent and went through the whole house. it was AWFUL. 

When you walked into our house you walked into a hallway type area. This is what that wall looked like.

 I will admit the demo could be a little fun! 

 We even got a few mishaps with all the construction. 

One of the things I was soooo anxious about was replacing our floor. I am kinda of a freak about clean floors. This light wood drove me NUTS. 
I fell in love with the floors we picked out. Love them!!!

Thank Goodness for my Dad. We would still be in the middle of all this if it wasn't for him! If you know my Dad you know how good at this stuff he is! We are truly lucky!

Ok, this is the picture of the wall before we changed it up. I think this ended up being my favorite part. We were going to tear down the whole wall...

The wall from the living room

During!!! The armoire in back ground is another project I had going...

The bar...probably my favorite thing in my house. Yes, it was Christmas time...such bad planning..I actually think this was taken Christmas Eve, chris had the flu and my entire family was coming over the next day...

Finished!!! Ok I don't know why I took the pic before the outlet cover was put on.

My awesome Bestie gave me her bar stools when they moved. They are prefect for our bar! 

My new front door!

It was A TON of work and we were pretty much grumpy the entire time but we love it now. We still have a lot to do to make the rest perfect. I don't know if we will ever do all of it but for now we will enjoy this! The girls always say Mama I like our new house better...
