The Painted House

We've done a lot of painting. A special thank you to Mark and Bill!

This is the front room.

This is the middle room. Same color as the front room. Copley Gray.

This is our bedroom. Adiago, which is a slate blue.

Here is our hallway from the upstairs. Wow! Merlot Red. This is only one coat of primer and one coat of red. Hope it only takes one more coat!

This is the hallway from the downstairs foyer.

This is the guest bedroom. Italian Saffron.

This is Graham's Room. Wow again! I don't remember the name of the color, but I'm scared. This is only the first coat.

More before pictures...

This is the upstairs water closet. Funky!

This is the upstairs bathroom. Nice door to the upstairs deck. Not.

This is a small room upstairs that will be my office/craft room.

This is the kitchen. It's pretty funky, but has so much potential!

This is the downstairs bathroom. Oddly, it's off of the kitchen.

Some Before Pictures...

Here is a picture of me and Graham on our new stairs!

This is the view to our back yard and to the garage.

This is the back of the house.

Here is the foyer. The stairs are gorgeous!

This is the front room. It will eventually be our living room, but may be a playroom for a while. Notice the original fireplace. It is one of four in the home.

This is the middle room. It will eventually be our dining room, but may be our living room for a while....this is the second original fireplace.

Our New House!

We just bought an old house on First Street in the historic district of Old Louisville. It was built in 1901 and I belive it is italinate style. It needs a lot of work, but I love it! Here, I will post the progress as we make it, so you can follow along!
