So now I'm at the top of the stairs.
We have these corner protectors all over the house. People seem to love them.
And this is the foyer. I'm sure I got these lights at a garage sale somewhere. They look like outdoor lights and I just love them in the foyer. Makes me feel like I'm outside when I'm in!
I'm thinking about putting a little bookshelf here.
Its' funny how you have everything planned out in your head where you are going to put stuff, then it never looks as good when you actually do it!
Step into the back bedroom!
Someone mentioned that they would put chandeliers up everywhere in the house. I love chandys and would love the put them up, but we actually use the ceiling fans a lot. We did a lot of practical and less maintenance type stuff on this house whenever possible.
I thought I would stand in each corner of the room and take a picture, since I can't get the whole room in one picture.
I think the bed will go between these two windows.
That's it! Back out to the foyer.

I have to say, I think the upstairs is my favorite!
And it's FINISHED!!!
So let's start here....
at the bottom of the unfinished steps.
And walk on up...
these gorgeous steps!
And these little hand rail brackets are were a special online order.
And these lights remind me of old schoolhouse lights.
They light the way up the stairs.
And I think I'll stop here for the day.
I'm trying to do smaller posts.
Stay tuned for the upstairs...you're gonna love it!

Time for a house update!
Past time, actually...
We are working on the upper level, which is just two bedrooms and a bath.
And for our purposes, I doubt it will be used much.
I started painting trim for the upstairs back in November.
The way we do it is like this....
Dave measures and cuts the pieces of trim he needs and lays out what will fit on the horses.
He also puts these little trim pieces on nails because they are easier to paint and dry like this. I can get all sides without them sticking to the wood.
As you can see in the background of these pictures, we have a bit of a mess. There are a lot of materials and tools needed to build, and when you are working in two rooms, it gets a bit crowded with those materials and tools. We've put cardboard down to protect the hardwood floors. I'll do a proper TahDah post on the bedrooms when all of the stuff is out of those rooms.
We have lights and ceiling fans!
I'm pretty sure I'm done painting trim. And it's all hung.
We've also been busy with the bathroom.
Looking for flooring took a little bit of time.
Those were a couple of samples Dave brought home, but he wanted me to go to the store with him to make sure there wasn't something I liked better.
We have since finished the bathroom and in my next post I will show you all the details!
