Previous owners had made it nice and pretty with paint (except for the wallpaper), but still could use lots of work. See below ugly linoleum floors & hideous wallpaper.
These were 2 of the first things to go. We actually had to remove 2 layers of wallpaper and retexture the dining room walls. Then we pulled up the linoleum and put down tile in the kitchen and laminate in the dining. We also replaced the dishwasher. We did much more to the kitchen, but that will come in a later post.
I think that I got the desire to remodel from my parents, who remodeled an entire house from the ground up and from the inside out. However, my hubby and I have a couple of crippling issues. He is color blind and I have no sense of decorating. We are also horrible about the finishing touches. So what this means is that we have a 1/2 to 3/4 finished home. We keep at it though and this brings me to where we find ourselves today. We had vowed not to start anymore projects, but our master bathroom shower walls started caving in a couple of weeks ago which has forced us into a bathroom remodel. He says that he is taking it back to the studs which means color choices, tile choices, etc. I feel frozen with fear as to where to start. I will plug ahead and hopefully not end up with something I hate! :-0
Any ideas would be muchly appreciated.
