Grant Street Project: Month 4

A whole lot of trim work and painting has been going on this month.

Our carport is still a big workshop, which I think is pretty cool. Wish I had time to sit, take notes, and then build a playhouse in the backyard with the scraps and my own two hands. 

Inside the house, we are pretty much down to the finishes and such.

Our old back splash in the kitchen is gone (for the most part.)

The stairs have come a long way.

All old doors have been replaced with new doors. Check out those purplish doorknobs.

I had a paint date the other night. Paint color is by far the hardest decision for me. After buying and borrowing and painting over 10 samples (grayish whites, stark whites, ivory whites, who knew how different whites can be?!?),  I finally went with the color that had been on our cabinets all along. Dover white. It's a creamy warm white. 

They are painting all the walls as I type. Everything from the trim to the ceiling to the walls. It's all one color. I'm weird I guess, but after lots of thinking, I decided to go with what I prefer to look at. Since I'll spend the most time here, I went with what I like. And that's a warm white wash on everything. 

Fireplace is coming along. Brick will be going in the box deal too. 

Floors are still not in, but they're coming next week.

Master bath above, laundry below.

Closets and cabinets all trimmed and painted. I am so so ready to live with all this space that will feel so big to us. Just two more months (we think:)!!

Charlie is making sure they get it done right ;)

Here she is on the outside. Looking almost complete. She needs some new porch lights and her shutters, but she's getting there.

I didn't realize how far we'd come in a month until I looked at this last house post here

Feeling like my hands are so full lately. And I'm so so so thankful.

This is so neat and fun to watch... one day we will (hopefully) add on to our home-but for now it is fun to live vicariously through you;) I love how Charlie is eating those Gerber Puffs...Maggie loves to scarf down her baby sister's baby snacks as well!
