The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly!


OK, so can you guess which is which? The good news is that there are only one bad and one ugly (at least in this collage!). The top left is the bad. You should see the mess that is EVERYWHERE! Richard was there late today trying to get things cleaned up so people can work. Next would be the middle, top. Can you say U-G-L-Y?! That is MY bedroom! The picture really makes is look a little better than it does in person. It is so bright, it looks like it should be in a 10 year old girl's bedroom. They will be repainting it soon! The next two pics are of the color I chose for the dining room and the entry. I LOVE this color! It is such a gorgeous shade of turquoise. It totally makes up for the ugly green choice! Next is all the old doors lined up. They were all sealed over the holidays. The middle, right is the beginnings of Cade's built-in bunk beds. They are going to be so cool. The guy is going to use some wooden bats in the design. I can't wait to see it! Bottom, right is the built-in's that are in the children's den. Next is the state balcony. Doesn't it look awesome? It's not finished yet, but I love it! And, finally, maybe my most favorite feature of the whole house: the lockers! Every child has one, and there is plenty of space for jackets, backpacks, shoes, and whatever else they are throwing all over my floor now. They are in the laundry room which opens to the garage. All the cabinets in there are painted this awesome olive green color (the picture doesn't really show the color well). Well, that's the update. There has been alot of work done, but there is still SO much to do. The builder told me today that he doesn't see us being ready for the Christmas party. I had actually given up on that a few days ago, but now I just want to be in for Christmas. I hate not having a Christmas tree up, or any decorations! We'll see which workers show up tomorrow.

Oooohh, pretty, love the turquoise color too! It's too bad about the bedroom paint and not being done in time for the party, I'm sorry.
I hope you get in before Christmas too, what a great way to start a new year! :)

OH That looks so awesome!!! I love all the colors you picked and the UGLY does not look too bad on my computer. I so hope you will be in by Christmas. That would be so cool for you guys to be able to celebrate such a special holiday in your new home. Love everything!! I especially love the locker idea. I hate bookbags, shoes and whatever else they toss on the ground just laying around. Love the locker thing!!

Beautiful! I love the turquoise color and I have wanted built in lockers for each child forever!

your house looks great!!!....even the green color does not look bad on the screen! :) I do know that greens can be challenging! A few years ago we were going to paint our kitchen green.....we tried 10 different quarts of green paint~we could never get the right shade and ended up changing to a whole different color scheme! Colors can be challenging! I sure do hope you are in by Christmas-what fun to celebrate in the new house!

Jennifer I love the blue/turqoise! It looks like that awesome Restoration Hardware Color. And, you are right the Master does not look bad in the pics. Jeff and I would absolutely love to build someday. Lockers would be on the top 10 list! I am so glad you have this to keep you busy while you wait for your little China wonder! Blessings,
Diana
