A place to call home - In triplicate

Well, if you read this post, you've probably been wondering how the house updating has been coming along.

Melissa and I have come a long way, even though we fight almost every second on what looks good and what looks bad. I usually concede to her, because, really, what the heck do I know?

Judging by the last update, the picture was of the living room. Here's what it looks like now:

As for the dining room, it once looked like this. It now looks like this. Granted, the chandelier still has to go, but it still looks better.

Nothing has been done with the kitchen, because that's expensive as hell, but Melissa put contact paper down in all the shelves, and I discovered that the 4, 5 and 6 buttons on the microwave don't work any more, which makes for some creative heating machinations on my part.

On to the bedroom, which once looked like this, but now looks like this:


And now for the PINK ROOM, which isn't pink any more:


No, it's not pink any more:


Oh, and just to make my point:


You may be wondering where I've been actually LIVING as all of this transformation has been going on. Well, what once was this, is now this. So, I'm Spartan, and so is Mel.

Damn, that bachelor pad is KICKIN'!

The house looks great but the Feng Shui in your office space is awful. All of your power is directed into the corner. Did you misbehave alot as a child and have a passive punishment like standing in the corner like me?

So when's the house warming?

Heh. Actually, Johnny, I have plans to put a small couch against the open wall in the office, which should even everything out a little. But, for right now, my finances don't permit much in the way of such spendy purchases.

Wow, that looks a lot better.

Also, look, no pictures of tigers.

Or your ass.

So that's a vast improvement.

Those pics look great. The house sure has come a long way. But I'm still all for flogging whoever was responsible for the originial choice of colors...

It's looking great! Hardwood floors go a long way towards making a place look fabulous - nice work there. Melissa did a great job with choosing soothing colors. You might want to rethink tossing the chandelier, as they're all the rage now. But I'm sure Melissa will let you know what you want to do with it...

I don't understand why anybody would have covered those floors, they are gorgeous now.
Liking the colors, very zen making.
What is the yard like? Sorry, you're probably not even thinking about that yet.
Good job, not a fun job, but a good job!
