Home Renovations!

So my buddy N and his significant other P, came over and we did some upgrades to the house!

N is a genius at lighting and P is a whiz at home decor/color schemes, I went to their house on New Years Eve, and they were painting away. I was instantly in love with their color scheme and lighting ideas, so we decided to 'pimp my house'. A big thanks to them for spending the entire weekend working on the place! We all had it in our heads that it would be done Saturday by 4, but after working into 10:30 PM and then 2PM the next day, we were all beat! N and P especially.

We worked ALL weekend getting this stuff done, and it looks great. The builder installed the fluorescent fixture in the kitchen with butterfly bolts. Oh yeah, they forgot to anchor the drywall to the studs in the middle of the drywall, so the drywall was hanging with a 50lb light fixture pulling down on it, thereby causing the drywall to form a crack that got longer every year I lived there.

Enough is enough! Recessed can lights in the kitchen, we added lights to the living room, and replaced the ceiling fan with a more modern looking unit!

Check out the pics!

Here's a before shot....

I only buy them when you come over, and on the way home, I stop and buy a chronicle at the intersection before the house so I have the sports page ready for you......
