lower unit bathroom.

Some progress was made to the lower unit apartment! When I first purchased the house the upper unit was in much worse condition compared to the lower. Now, the upper is my new favorite place. My previous tenant moved out so we (note: "we" usually means john and peg) took some time to re-do the lower unit bathroom. Here are some before and after photos.

Well. It has been some time since I have shared an update. The most exciting news at the duplex has taken place in the lower unit.. BATHROOM. I'll share a few pictures in my next post of that remodel but for the time being. Here are some general shots of the lower apartment. 

art abounds.

cheers to brilliant DPI for printing artwork for me! and huge cheers to my awesome dad for hanging it up!

stairway to heaven.

the entrance to the second floor (the unit we are re-doing) definitely needed a refresher. since painting the WHOLE area would have been too much to take on, marge came up with the idea of using their house as an inspiration.

the above photo is from the staircase at my parent's house. the staircase has two tones of paint... a darker color at the railing height and lighter at the top. we used that idea to upgrade my front entrance.

swing from the chandelier

check out this upgrade. this chandelier hung in my parents house until last spring when my dad refinished their dining room and swapped out the light (to a refurbished find). now the chandelier has new life in bay view!
