Kitchen Makeover Almost Finished

Except for the tv above the fireplace, some shelving, counter stools and lots of decor the kitchen is almost finished. Are you ready to see some pictures?

First a BEFORE view from the front door:

And now that same view AFTER:

And the view from the back door (I don't have a before shot from here, there was nothing to see.)

Stair Makeover

Stairs that lead directly to 1985 in our house.

The stairs made it into the kitchen remodel.  Since the wood floors on the entire first floor were being redone we had to include the stairs.  The stairs lead directly to the 2nd floor which hasn't been updated since about 1985 with the offwhite trim and doors, brass doorknobs everywhere and 1950s pink bathroom tile.  It will remain that way for awhile but I thought I would show the much improved stairs in all their glory.

Before:
Dated staircase makeover
And now, no carpet, all white semi gloss trim, refinished wood and new railing:
