We left off just as we walked down our new stairs and into the new den. If you remember back in June, S gave me Ikea's Karlstad couch for my birthday. And now it finally has a home in the new den:
Goodwill finds has a new home.
Buzzy Trusiani painted for us as a wedding gift.
To the right of the built-ins we have a little sitting area with the chair that used to live in the guest room and the coffee table that used to be in front of the futon in the old den.
Just under those pesky stairs is another nook, sized perfectly for our freezer, which we've just recently discovered isn't a standard sized freezer anymore. Crap.
sails, sewing stuff, an extra sewing machine ('cause you know we all need an extra sewing machine) and much to S's chagrin, the Nordic Track.
Down the hall to the right of our new storage closet and just between the new bathroom to the right and the fourth bedroom to the left is another fabulous new nook....
And just a note on floors. We absolutely love the engineered hardwood oak floors we installed throughout the renovation. But, because we know wood and water don't mix (remember we waterproofed the walls and lay several layers of vapor barrier under the floors) we installed large gray tiles in the laundry closet and under the stairs just in case the freezer ever leaks.
To the left of the laundry closet is the new bedroom we showed you a few weeks ago. And to the right is the new bathroom, but like we've said a gazillion times, the bathroom is still a work in progress.
And that's it, a BIG post for our BIG renovation!
