Welcome to the Winters house....

Does anyone remember what it used to look like?? The brass fixtures everywhere....nasty carpet & linoleum....beige, beige and more beige!!! We ripped it all down and started over (pics during facelift)....
The walls are now a warm custard, new carpet & baseboards have been installed, new fixtures, new tile floors....
I swear the bathroom is a soft mocha with white & chocolate accents....not sure why it's so yellow in the pic. :( We put oil-rubbed bronze fixtures and towel bars up, the bronze faucet will be going once we actually remodel the cabinets (next year, we need a break). The large vent thingy at the top of our hallway is our whole house fan, do you have any idea how flippin cool this thing is?!?!?! We didn't! But after our $300 electric bill dropped to $90, we figured it out! The house cools off in literally seconds with this thing. LOVE IT! Oh and that's the master at the end of the hall, didn't go in there for pics because it's not done yet. I haven't chosen bedroom furniture yet and the door frames haven't been primed and painted, so I have a little bit of work to do this xmas...but I'll get there. ;)
Never again will my stamp room be this clean, it took over 2 hours to clear things up in there. But it's MINE MINE MINE!!! Hubby won't let me play until after this weekend....I promised that once the house warming was over that I would go through everything and we'd have a garage sale the next weekend. WHAT WAS I THINKING?!?! There are more rooms to take pics of, but this was all I took apparently. LOL Was too busy at the cupcake buffet to bother with photo taking. LOL

It's absolutely beautiful... ahhhh, to think of the day that I don't have to worry about breakables....LOL! although, then I'll be sad b/c my kids will old...and I'll be even OLDER! it's amazing.

YOUR HOME LOOKS GREAT! i LOVE YOUR STAMP ROOM. I am in the middle of redoing mine. I have a question. I live in Houston and our electric bill is huge. We have decided to stay in our house because of the economy and fix it up. You said something about a house fan. What is it, and can I install one in my home? We have a two story home with two air conditioners. Our bills reach $500 during the heat of the summer. I am wondering if the house fan you have might help us. It might be worth the investment. Please let me know when ever you have a minute.

Thank You,
Janin Huerter

holy cow! the whole house looks AWESOME!! --- no wonder you're exhausted! :)
And of course your stamp room is darling! I wanna come play! My poor room right now is in the process of re-organizing...I can't really even walk through. It's more like a hop, then strategically placed foot movements...it's kinda like walking like you're avoiding landmines. :)
Congrats!
Stacie
