The first thing we learn from this study is that I need to do a better job at taking “before” and “after” pictures. They don’t all match up very well. In fact, this first pair doesn’t even have a “before” and “after,” just a couple of “during” shots.

Can you tell what happened last week? Yes, the old carpet was ripped out and new carpet installed.


the upstairs hallway

the spare bedroom

the master bedroom


Michelle’s bedroom

the stairs

And since I couldn’t sit around for two days doing nothing, it was the perfect time to paint the family room/kitchen.

Now we need to decide on the next top priority!
