    Default My remodel

    My home is much more meager than most of the homes posted on here, but it is our first home, and we're aiming to do some nice updates/upgrades.

    Our house was built in 1973 and has many of the original features - stylish linoleum, wall paper, wainscoting, fixtures, popcorn ceilings, outdated appliances, carpet, etc.

    Here are some pics of the move-in condition:

    First project - scraping popcorn ceiling texture, followed by hand-texture and fresh paint.

    Carnage




    Nice and smooth


    Textured, painted, and new ceiling fans (remote controlled)

    No more tile, but still needs floor sanding

    Whew! I'm finally done texturing the main living areas. It took way longer than I anticipated, but I was more concerned with doing the best job possible. It took around 14 hours total just for the texture. We have Friday off, so we'll be laying the paint.

    It's hard to capture the detail in a picture, but this shows the change:

    Last wall, still drying




    And I never really showed the appliances installed (cabinets will be refinished) (excuse the mess)




    More updates after paint...
