4 days left to the big move and now we are complete painting all room’s and the finishing work is going in. Today we put in white floor carpet in Þóra Lóa’s room.. It turned out prefect and we where able to lay it our selfs, so easy and cheap!
We used spacial carpet tape and glued it down and then we cute off the extra edge so it fits exactly in the room. Now we will put in wall lists over the carpet ?
In one week we will move in and then I will take on the kitchen renovation. I want to give the old kitchen a facelift and spay paint the fronts and lists, we will see if I can do it myself or find someone to help us so it turn out nice and even. This is how our kitchen looks now:
We haven’t dicited yet what color we want.. There are so many nice options. Here are some of my inspiration kitchens, which one do you like the most?
I really can’t decide but I do love the brown/beige/gray shade that is in the top kitchen, then there is more “safe” to go gray or white. At the moment I feel that our new house is almost all light gray so to find another shade for the kitchen would be nice. What do you think would fit? I take all tips on shades and styles ?
Feel like I am often excusing myself for little updates.. I am so often saying – There is too much going on at the same time. Well again, there is too much going on at the same time (!) I found myself crying over nothing bc I am just so overwhelmed.. Almost no sleep, two newborns, new house, toddler and a company. This is the recipe for madness!
Soon I will find the light in the end of the tornado and the carrot that keeps me going is the process we make everyday in the new house.
Here is where we stand now in the renovation..
Upper living room, here we have spray painted the panel ceiling and lighten the floors. We have left to paint the walls.
The house is built in many different floor highs, the upper living room is the highest floor with large windows and a big balcony.
In our apartment we lighten the floors in three layers, here we just decided to keep them natural with extra matte lack.
On the entree floor is the kitchen, entrance, guest bath and guest bedroom.
We took down a wall and opened up into the kitchen, we also took down some of the upper cupboards to open the kitchen up more and use the ceiling height. We will spray paint the kitchen interior, probably dark brown/gray and put up open shelf’s.
From the first floor there is a full stair case down to the “bedroom floor”, we have taken down the hand railing to have it redone, not yet sure if it will be back or white. We also installed hanging lights.
When you walk down the stairs there was a small bedroom right after the stairs, we decided to opened up and made into a hall way/open office room out in the garden. Here we also put in concrete floor.
The boys room was two small bedrooms that we took down the wall in between. We are keeping the two doors and later when they want their own room we can just put up the wall again. Here we have only painted the walls and have left to put in flooring and paint windows.
I completely fell in love with the green/gray color in their room from Nordsjö/Serefni.
Toras room is also finished painted but we have floor and windows left. Her wall color is in pale pink also from Nordsjö/Serefni.
Then there is our bedroom, all bathrooms, washing room, mud entrance, guest room and lower living room left to start on. I will keep you updated! One palace where I am good to put in all small updates is on my Instagram/insta story, you can follow the renovation there also ;)
I bought this beautiful letter board to have on the wall in the boys new room. I decided to write their birth numbers on it and now Þóra also want a letter board in pink in her new room ?
Letter Board & Baby’s first book both from Design Letters
I am really trying to write down every process the boys makes in the thier Baby book. I wasn’t sure to have one for the both of them or one for each, but then I decided to only have one bc it was one pregnancy etc.
Here is Viðar with the two month old card – Elvar was sleeping so I will snap a pic of him with the card later.
