We are finally winding down with our renovations! The electrician and the plumber have both finished up there work, so now we're down to little finishing details. Gone is the 1970s wallpaper and paneling. Gone is all the carpet. Now it's looking fresh and new with a bit of a vintage vibe.
Living Room View
|View from the living room of the dining room, entrance to the kitchen and both the front and back entries.|
This picture was taken from the living room. To the far left is the front entry, then the entrance to the kitchen is just to the right of that. Both of those openings will eventually be trimmed out with moldings, but for now they're remaining naked. The large opening on the right is the wall we had taken out, and beyond that, through the dining room, is the back entry. Before that wall was removed, the living room felt very cut off from everything, and the dining room was very dark with little to no natural light.
Since this picture was taken, Jim has installed the baseboards in the kitchen. They make a huge difference. He installed the baseboards right over the rubber wall base. Removing the adhesive and rubber moldings was not going to be an easy job, so we decided to trim off the curved section with a utility knife, and run the baseboards over the top of them. It just seemed easier and less time consuming.
