Still renovating

Paul has finished sheetrocking the living room and I am trying to get all surfaces painted so he can get the floor laid. My poor kids, eating dinner on a pile of sheetrock, playing amongst sawdust and constantly getting paint on their clothes...it will all be worth it though - one day. The big wall has been painted a calming blue and I am so looking forward to getting my things in there. Ok, so the rest of the house still is a pit and will be tackled next week. here's a before:

Noah's room minus a wall.

Future guest room

Front door

In the midst of the dust, I have managed to finish a few commissioned pieces. Can you believe that? I think this image is fantastic, the customer said that it came amongst some vintage circus photos.

I will be back a bit later, hopefully with pictures of finished rooms!

your house is coming along, erika. at least it is only your husband in there instead of a crew of strangers. that would really be a pain in the touches. and that commission you did is lovely. that child on the dog is sooo adorable.

Looks great! What an amazing color for the wall. And your kids--believe it or not--will have fond memories of these days soon.

Wonderful art work.

You are amazing!

My kids still talk about riding their bicycles through the house when it was being renovated...and that was over 15 years ago...These adventures are priceless.
Love the horse art piece. When the house is done I suspect you will be doing some gardening?
