Fi-nal-ly! I am making some things happen around the hizzy... These are most def some before the the before shots.


So we have pulled up all the carpet and padding in the main living areas and soon to be our master bedroom. We are two weeks into the project, but right on time because I am not rushing or forcing this project.
Where ever you see the hash marks is where we currently have exposed concrete floor. This is the first of many projects I want o achieve this year, but patience is going to be the key for me.  The Hub and I have to fit this into our already hectic schedules with him working two jobs and me working all day and running the kids here and there in the evening for what ever practices.

Remember this is what I am going for above! Yes that dark. Until we can afford wood and the kids get older, painting the concrete is definitely the way to go.

We still need to sand, fill all the cracks, and clean and prep furiously before we prime, paint, and seal.

We even took up the tile in the foyer because I did not want continuous run with no breaks. I am all giddy inside because I am finally putting hands on my house. We figured the only way its going to happen is to purposely set aside scheduled times to work on the things we want done around here.  I really can not wait to show after pics.
