House Projects

We've decided to tackle a few more house projects in 2012 (and finish one from 2011)....starting with the stairs.  Chris ripped out all the carpet last summer, leaving us with some beautiful hardwood floors.  While on vacation from work and break from school, we were able to paint the risers and they look SO MUCH BETTER!  Here are a few before and afters:






We (well, I) decided that it was time for the "little" bathroom to get a face lift...it's the size of a closet...seriously really tiny but it serves it's purpose!  We've removed all the wallpaper (I hate that stuff!) and will be painting the walls, replacing the sink, light fixtures and accents.  Here are a few photos of it in works.  We've got a date with the home improvement store this afternoon to pick out fixtures and I'm hoping to get it repainted next weekend before classes resume.  The condition of the walls in less than ideal so I'm thinking about doing a faux or textured treatment to the walls...anyone know if these are still "in"?    





Stay tuned for our progress.  What's on your 2012 project list?
