Home Improvement Update: Part One

I know, I promised an update on Saturday, but the work was supposed to be done by Noon too.
Neither thing happened. Joe thought they would be done in half a day, but things just kept happening and they were finally able to finish after five on Saturday. It looks beautiful and I am VERY happy with the colors we went with. I wish everything was back in it's place now, but it is not. I am trying to get a little done each night so I can finally get back to normal!

I took a bunch of photos, so I will do a Dining Room post, part two will be the bathroom progress and hopefully part three will be completed photos of both rooms!

Here is an action shot - Paint is finally being rolled on! "Notable Hue" looks a LOT darker here than it is.

You can see in this photo that the color is just a shade darker than what was there. This color is very close to the same shade of blue that our tile is.

Just a small mess compared to the rest of the house right now. They had to put stuff somewhere!

It seemed like we spent most of Saturday watching paint dry. We did go purchase a new chandelier. I'm really glad I waited to purchase this light, because I had a stained glass fixture picked out, but I don't think I would have like it once we got the paint on the walls.

I love the one we picked out! No more ugly brass with a chain that was too long!

I love this! Simple, but elegant.

See how pretty those ceilings are now? The kitchen is next on my project list!

With the money I saved by NOT going with the stained glass fixture for the Dining room we were able to replace two more fixtures that I have hated almost from the day we put them up! Yes, THREE for the price of one! The ceiling fan in the Kitchen is now gone, as is the ugly little can light that was above the sink.

Much better! Don't you think?
Bathroom photos tomorrow...
