Renovation in Full Swing

This is what it looks like when I walk into our house in Maryland. Last year it was the master bedroom, which turned out beautiful! This year, it the rest of the bedrooms. This is looking into the living room. We are down this weekend to do some hardcore labor. Doing most of the grunt work ourselves to save some money.

This is our dining room. It is full of everything from the three bedrooms that we are re-doing. We started out thinking we were just going to paint, then it turned into a full fledged remodeling job. We even added a bathroom in one of the bedrooms.

This is my daughter Amy's/guest room. Beautiful view. Putting all new solid wood doors throughout. So much painting to do!!

This is my mother-in-law's/guest room, also a beautiful view. This is the room that we added the new bathroom. It will be a pretty sage color.

This will be a walk through closet between the 2 bedrooms.

This is my son's/guest room. We have twin beds and a futon in here.

This is the hallway looking down to the 3 bedrooms and the main (small) bathroom.
We are painting the wainscoting white, finally! On the left is going down to the basement.
We will be putting hardwood flooring throughout, tough decision because I kind of wanted carpet in the bedrooms. It will look nice with some pretty rugs though. Can't wait to show you the results.
So when I say I need a break sometimes from the computer, you can see why! There will be no entertaining here for little while.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!



  1. Okay, girl, now you're just bragging that your man can do all this (with your expert supervision, of course). Wish mine was more of a handyman in the house but boy, can he plant and grow a garden! I'll trade you some tomatoes for a hard wood floor. No? It was worth a try. :) xoxo

  2. I could take a nice fresh tomato right about now!!

  3. Ronda you did plenty of entertaining on an epic scale last year! The renovations are going to be gorgeous! I am looking forward to watching the progress. It will sure keep you hopping!! Stella is snoopervising, I suspect. I just love white wainscoting. After you and the hubs get done in MD why not consider coming up to Anchorage to help me redo my Master BR??? Take a break here and there!! xoxo

  4. what a beautiful space!! remodels always turn into more than anticipated!!

  5. Wow, how exciting for you!!!! Can NOT wait to see the results. Have fun with it although I know it's exhausting.

  6. What a project! This is amazing...I can't wait to see all the pictures along the way. & I absolutely love white wainscoting also! So pretty! & thanks for the comment & question--we're kinda trying to keep all the details off of the public blog world scene...but I'd love to chat with you all about it! could you send me an e-mail sometime?? :) That would be so much fun! theluckiestmrs (at) gmail (dot) com

  7. WOW you are doing a lot! Where's the brushes? I like painting especially the cutting and trim. Oh I hope you continue to share. Beautiful my friend! Hmmm... I do have one tiny question- you showed everyone's room but where is Miss Stella's room? smile.... xo
