Renovation: Almost Done!

Hope everyone had a lovely Labor Day holiday weekend! The weather in New York was divine!!!

John and I spent the weekend making various visits to our new place - with a late night trip to Ikea thrown in for some good stress-inducing measure. It seems as if some of items we had delivered from there had essential pieces missing from their boxes and we needed to return to the store to get replacements.

This week is going to be exceptionally busy - we have the floors downstair getting their second coat of polyurethane, the appliances are being delivered on Thursday, along with a big delivery from the Container Store (Elfa Shelving!!!)  and Friday the movers will be there!

The kitchen covered in lots of sawdust and minus the appliances & cabinet hardware.

Standing in the kitchen, here's the view of the living/dining room. The door on the left is a powder room and there's a fireplace on that opposite wall.

View of the fireplace (covered in plastic to protect it from the floorstain) and the spiral staircase that leads up to the second level.

Our master bath - almost completed. These shots show the shower, all covered in subway tile with dark grout, penny tile on the floors (still yet to be grouted in these pix) and black wainscotting along the lower walls. We have a pedestal sink and the exposed shower plumbing being installed this week.

And here's a shot of the sconces and medicine cabinet that will go above the pedestal sink!

We're both really excited to finally move on in and live back in Brooklyn. We've been living in a small studio apartment in Manhattan for the past month and are starting to drive one another crazy! So excited to sleep in my own bed, make pancakes for our first breakfast and just finally relax!!

I'm off to finish up a few last minute shopping details - will let you know how the move goes and try to keep things under control. Inspired Goodness is working on a small event for Weddingbee this weekend - so its sure to be a crazy few days.

Promise when we're up and running in our new digs to start sharing more frequent posts with all of you.
