Tool Time – Pics or It Didn’t Happen

Short post today. I still have lots to get to. Lucky for you, a picture is worth 1000 words. So, I’m providing some of my favorite before and after pictures of the progress I’ve made to-date. There’s still a whole lot to get to, but I can comfortably say that 1. IKEA is awesome. B. This place almost resembles a home and III. This is freaking awesome. Appliances (Washer, Dryer, Oven, Microwave) arrive tomorrow (Friday) and my bed is coming next weekend. That should give me plenty of time to get the basic layout of my bedroom down. I know I’ll need at least 2 coats of that maroon-y color I picked out. But enough stalling, on to the show!

Main Room - Before

Test Blue

Test Blue Too

It's Magic!

Comfy. Very Comfy.

Remember the kitchen? I’ll update with pictures after the appliances are installed, but here you go.

Kitchen. Before.

Kitchen, kinda after.

With help, I put together a sweet table and my TV has a home. Thanks IKEA. (Seriously, thank you.)

Yes, those tiles can be moved around. I KNOW!!!

I approve of this couch

As always, as more happens, I’ll do my best to report on it.

  1. Chris,

    You have made substantial progress in painting and making the place a home. Congrats on becoming a homeowner. You look exhausted in that last pic but you can’t rest yet. You have yet to make a closet storing suits with a revolving rack. Then, you can thumb through all the shirt & tie combinations you have. 🙂


  2. Lol, you are a natural at this stuff. I would go with test blue 2. The blue looks a lot better as a darker shade. And yes we would like to see a vid doc of you thumbing through your suits when you get the chance. Congrats and take care.
