During construction- not glamorous!

I will post before and after pictures later (when it's finally finished), but I thought I would show some DURING pictures right now....this is how we have been living for the past couple months.....
BaileyHusband putting up the scaffold that remained for 4 weeks! Great swingset for my boys, and really hard to relax and watch TV at night. But it's gone now!! Notice the ugly white fan and ALLLL the deerheads? (both, I'm happy to report are GONE from this room...well, most of the deerheads)

The remaining wood flooring that we have to jump over to get to the kitchen......
The SCARY opening to the stairs......
We took down the old banister and railing, and this is how it currently looks, hoping no children fall down the stairs and break their necks...so NOT up to code.....shhh.......the rest of this flooring is getting laid this weekend and hopefully the new railing will not be far behind. Although we still have yet to finalize an order for it!!!! 

This is the "holding station" for all things DECOR, in my bedroom! I hear BaileyHusband trip and get mad every night on his way to finding his side of the bed! This is probably the most stressful part because I like to keep our room in tip top shape....more like my sanctuary. I should probably do something about this soon.........

Our bedroom carpets need a professional to "tuck them in".


The boys helping daddy in our front room
What the front room currently looks like, unfinished , with  a bunch of furniture pushed in..... 
Adding the new trim....oh so pretty!

I FINALLY found a rug that I am in love with for the living room. This is from Pottery Barn. It is their Heathered Chenille Jute Rug 8x10 size. After looking in tons of catalogs, shops, and online stores...I knew this was THE ONE when I saw it on their showroom floor. Pottery Barn is having a sale on their rugs this month, and I got an even bigger discount by purchasing their floor model. BIG SCORE FOR ME!!!! It is in perfect condition and totally finished the space.

That is one thing off of my to-do list....
SOOO much more on that list....{sigh}

We are considering putting in wood floors as well. I am all excited and dreading it at the same time!
