Renovating is dirty...

and not in a good way.

So, progress is made daily. the kitchen and laundry room tile was installed, but i did not get a picture of it before spackling began. this is what it looks like now:

the grout was supposed to be dark gray, and obviously did not turn out that way. so once the spackling mess is cleaned up, i'll be dying the grout lines.

the walls are quite spackled now. but everything else is just DIRTY. here are some pictures to show just how dirty..

in other news, my floors spent a week in Baltimore. the shipping company repeatedly tried to deliver them to a random house in elkridge, MD. this would be great, except i dont' live in elkridge maryland! they finally made it though and are now stacked in the middle of the disaster awaiting installation..

in other renovation news, the upstairs isn't being completely ignored. the "second guest" room has this lovely popcorn wall which also contains glitter. yes, that is right, a glittery popcorn wall!

it seemed obvious that the only color choice to go with a glittery wall was pink! the ultimate little girl princess room! yes, i'm 34. so what? i can still love an ultimate little girl princess room! so, pink it is! think pepto. it's only two walls and one wall has 2 doors and the other 2 windows, but it still very very pink.

and apparently if you are going to have a pepto pink room, you have to offset it with a baby blue room. it wasn't supposed to be quite so baby blue. i am planning on doing a metallic top coat, so that should tone down the baby blueness.

A bit of advice to anyone who is planning on living in their house during renovations.
