Before and After - Part 2

Yesterday, I shared with you the exterior portion of my mom's rental house makeover.

Today is the day for the inside photos.

Hold onto your hat.

Here is the front door in the family room area.....



The Dining Area...



Another view of the family room  (after we removed the filthy carpet)....



The den and hall and kitchen were painted Sherwin Williams Townhall Tan.

ALL of the existing flooring had to come out of the house.

We replaced the floors with a vinyl that looks like wood......

By Armstrong.

This was the perfect flooring option for a house in this price range.  



The bedrooms were carpeted with a neutral carpet.

Bedroom number 3....
(isn't the BEFORE carpet lovely?)



Another bedroom....



And the bathrooms were begging for new paint, and needed all of the out-of-date lights and wooden towel racks removed....


We also replaced the mirror and the faucets.


The 1980 wooden base was still very sturdy - so we painted the bathroom cabinets black (like my sister did in her bathroom.)






The black on the cabinets is much cleaner looking and closer to 2012 than the stained wood.

Tomorrow, I will post photos of the kitchen!

Yes I agree, the bathroom cabinet looks much nicer black.
You sure had your work cut out for you.

Wow you have really been busy. Love the paint and the flooring. It sure looks like real wood. The home is really coming together wonderfully. Thanks for sharing with Share Your Cup. Now following you.

I feel a kindred spirit here! I am getting the home we have lived in for 30 years ready to sell. Our cabinetry in the guest bath and in the kitchen went from light oak to a dark expresso brown (that really looks black at first glance) And all the walls are those tan colors too. Used the vinyl wood planks in one of the bedrooms that matches the laminte in the rest of the house so one so far has noticed it's vinyl!
