MORE before and afters....

Are you ready to see
before and afters?

This should be it for awhile as
I need to save some money to 
do any more....

First, I forgot to show you our
really cool new kitchen sink....



Nope -- I don't fit in this one either....

Living/Dining room







This is the neat little display
cabinet that is built in next to 
the fireplace....(it was here)

Beth has her keepsakes in there....

Her elephant mug collection
that she and her mother
worked on....

They are Republican mugs....
she has all of them --
from 1968 - 2009
when they stopped making them.

On the year the Republican president is
elected the name of the President and 
Vice President is on the mug.
(no, I don't think she's a republican....
her mother just LOVED elephants!)

On the bottom she has some of her
favorite items....

Even her Barbie, Skipper and Ken doll....
yep, they are OLD!

Now the little room off the 
Living/Dining room....
Beth calls it her "Girl Cave"....





Oh yeah....I better show you Mike's
MAN CAVE too!  
Don't want to leave him out!

Well that's it!
Just wanted to share with you what I 
have been doing....
That's why I was gone for a few days
here and there....
not just goofing off!

Later -- Remington --
maybe I should be a designer....
what do you think?
-- out!

Sam said...

What? You didn't get your own room, Remington?

Your house looks very cozy!


Madi and Mom said...

OMCs OMDs Rem thank goodness you are a big strong handsome Newfie. I bet it took lots of muscles to move the furniture around.
We love love love the elephant collection. I had no idea you could by those and the sleigh hanging on the wall is a very good focal and conversation piece. Oh Mom wants to know if those are lights on the ceiling in the last picture?
Hugs Madi your BFFF

i would hire you to be my designer. it would not take you long because my whole house would almost fit in one of your rooms. a beautiful home and i love the man cave, i like lots of windows and light and you have all of that. you look so cute under the table in the man cave. i saw a spinning wheel and did you know you have a sled on your wall?

Love all your updates esp the kitchen as I need to do that too.

The mugs are a hoot. Didn't know they did that .. elephants .. crazy.

Got to go ... Jodie wants to go outside probably to tell everyone in our woods how cool your house is now.

Kelli said...

You should def. be a designer Remington! I can see people saying, "Remi, what do you think of this?" Your new home is so beautiful! Looks like you have lots of room to run around, indoors and out. Tell Beth that I still have my Donnie and Marie barbies, and my Farrah Fawcett Charlie's Angels barbie. lol

Remington my sweet, what a beautiful job everyone did with the changes. Your home is gorgeous! Mommy is crazy for those built ins by the fireplace. She collects something called "precious moments" and has never had a good place to keep them. I hope I can come and visit soon and you can show me around. Have a good practice with the Packers and also a good game on Sunday. I will look for you on tv. Call me please

What a great house

Stop on by for a visit

Grady and Leonardo said...

Hey Rem,
Your new home is so beautiful. The changes you have worked so hard to do are amazing. You certainly have a sense of style and I'm sure Beth and Mike really appreciate all the changes you have suggested. We (actually Mom) can't wait to see some winter photos.

Peace and Love,
Your Bro Leo, Grady and Mom.
