Moved Out

Yep, that is exactly what we did this past weekend! No, not the moving out you may have been thinking if you are new to my blog. We moved out everything from the dining room & office to prepare for the new flooring we are in the process of laying. 

Welcome to our dining room. Attractive isn't it!?;) It soon will be....maybe not as soon as we like but soon. 

I did not want to take the window treatments down and then have to iron them so I decided to wrap um up with plastic and duck tape. Works pretty well! Now you may be wondering where everything ended up.

A little here.

A little there...and yes I have yet to get behind the heavy dresser to finish painting our master but it is on the top of the list trust me!

Every nook and crannie in our home is holding something since the front half of our house is being demolished. 

There is not even a vacancy in our Guest Suite at the moment. 

Our Sophia decided to take the very last spot available! Don't worry though if you are brave enough to want to come and visit right now you can have the boys twin beds upstairs!;)

So yep my house is starting to look like an episode of hoarders and I am honestly surprisingly okay with that... at this moment. The flooring in the dinning room actually came up much easier than the foyer but I am still having a heck of a time getting the concrete ready for prepping so we can re level it all.

It is funny now that everything is out I am thinking of all the things I want to do to these rooms before we put everything back in. The dining room I am hoping will get some new trim work and then I want to paint the buffet and for the office we have a table we bought  months ago to store all The Hubster's computer "treasures" that needs to be painted as well. So lots more projects to do but instead of feeling over whelmed like I have been I am actually kinda excited to get it all done!

So what have y'all been up to??

  1. Your floors are going to be fabulous. I sure wish I had some on the way. Can't wait to see them all down. Hugs, Marty

  2. Hey Pamela! So glad you liked my laundry room...I'm totally in LOVE with it. (how weird am I?! lol)
    I love your mess....I always say, it takes a mess to make something beautiful. I'm sure your floors are gonna be lovely! :)

  3. Oh, my what a mess, but it will all be worth it in the end. I feel for you. We have lived with messes so many times I can't count them. Good luck with the floor.

  4. I'm okay with those messes, too, Pamela, because I know it is only temporary and the final outcome will have made it so worth it! We haven't done anything this major in awhile {thankfully}. I think we are saving it up for when we downsize!

  5. The little mess will be well worth what is, undoubtedly, going to be a stunningly, fabulous "after" !! Can't wait to see .... xo

  6. Floors are looking good! It was the Home Depot off of El Dorado in Clearlake. After you nail them up, I would prime, and THEN fill in the holes with filler. I noticed my holes are kinda swollen, and I think the wet filler did that since it took it a while to dry.

  7. The floor will be so rewarding! Have a great week.

  8. Oh the after is going to be beautiful! I can tell from all of the goodies you have in there. Thanks for stopping by.

  9. it's going to look soooo good real soon! Please tell me more about the red head board! I love it!

  10. good luck! you have a lot of exciting changes coming and I wish I could be doing the same to my home

  11. Wow big untertaking there, good luck, love the pictures and I love the fabric on your window treatments!

  12. Reminds me of when we laid new walnut hardwood floors. Dust everywhere. Hope the curtains wrapped works. You will love your new space.

  13. So much work isn't it? Oh but the payoff is wonderful. Can't wait to see it all done Pamela - you are going to just love your new floors!!!

  14. Can't wait to see it all finished Pamela!! I know it's going to be gorgeous! Thanks for linking up! :)
