Renovation, Part 3

The basement walls got taped and smoothed this week, so Saturday, April 9th was mostly a paint-the-basement day. I snapped a few pix of the kitchen cabinets, which are now awaiting countertops, backsplash, and appliances... from teh breakfast nook looking forward to the dining room...

(the lovely tile work is under all that cardboard) beautiful!
Here is a sample of the backsplash tile, as well as the final two samples for countertops.
Heidi helped Uncle Mike paint the downstairs bathroom for a while.
Go, Heidi!
Daddy/Rich cut in the brick-red accent wall in the downstairs living room
Addie got to paint the nook in the Bear Cubs' Den where the bunk beds are built-in.

It's slow and steady, but it's coming along. We purchased lots of housewares and linens and mom found a nice rug for the upstairs living room last weekend in Salt Lake City (mostly at IKEA). We are excited for the next few weeks as all the finished details begin to come together!
