Blood, Sweat and Tears- Jeanne's Home Renovation
Remember my friend Jeanne's home renovation I blogged about here? The living room was ugly and scary and looked downright dangerous.
Now it is clean with a beautifully refinished hardwood floor. The filthy stained glass window was removed to be repaired and cleaned. The drop ceiling was removed. The whole room has come alive.
Again, the dingy floor and the nicotine stained walls and moulding needed TLC.
Here's a much prettier cleaned up version of the hallway. What a difference some 409 spray and a fresh coat of paint makes!
Jeanne bought this chandelier at a moving sale in her hometown. It is a nice addition to the entrance. I wish I had been at that sale but I think we would have fought over the chandelier!
A rather uninspring office or small bedroom. Nothing terribly hideous in this room compared to the others but it still needs some attention.
Bright and sunny now. Jeanne put some furniture in each room until she has tenants. I'm glad the old radiator is still prominent in the room. I love it.
The kitchen was stuck in a time warp and like all the rooms, it needed major cleaning and repair.
If I had seen this floor, I never would have bought the property. Jeanne is quite determined and handy and she also knows some good workmen.
Clean, shiny and bright. A lovely way to display some prized possessions. Who needs cabinet doors?
The floors are looking great now. Love the kitchen chairs too. I think there is still work to be done here.
The bedroom- again damaged floors, dirty, old wallpaper from a chain smoker. In need of improvement for sure.
Very nice. I love the color of the floors. They really turned out beautifully. The room is ready for some finishing touches and ready for a tenant.
Even the outside is getting a facelift. The house will be green with white trim.
Do you think Jeanne's job is finished? Guess again and come upstairs with me.
And let the demo begin!!
