That big black sheet of plastic that was blocking off the addition came down the other day so the tape and texture could be completed. It is so exciting to see it all start coming together!

Hubby and I need to have all the painting done by Monday. We started yesterday and, with some help from my brother and sister-in-law (They picked up more paint, watched the kids, and even took the boys to Hockey!) and a super thoughtful care package from a friend (Which kept our children occupied the rest of the time!), we were able to paint all day long.
We were able to finish all the primer and the ceilings, and today we'll start working on the walls.

We found a tile for the kitchen, entry, bathroom and laundry room, made by United Tile. It's their Mediterranea Bellagio Tile in Gold. It's SO much prettier in person than in the picture below. We love that it looks like it has texture to it, but is actually smooth which should make cleaning a bit easier.

The sink and faucet need to be here next week so the Granite can be measured for installation, so I finally made a decision and ordered them this past week. The sink is a little bit different (It has the low "Smart Divide" in the center which will make washing cookie sheets and filling pots a little easier.), but I think I am going to love it. We ordered it in "Biscuit" which is slightly off white.

Picking light fixtures (or should I say agreeing on light fixtures!) has been so hard. I finally found some earlier this week that I LOVE, but Hubby isn't so sure. (He did say that if I really would like them, that it would be fine!!) I'd love to hear what you all think!
Two sconces for above the Fireplace:
Two pendants for above the Counter Bar:
This light would go above the Island in the Kitchen:
This one would be for above the Dining Room Table:
And these two sconces would be on a couple walls in the new Living Room:
We still need to choose coach lights for outside and a fixture for the bathroom...
Okay . . . The baby just fell asleep for her morning nap, so it's time for me to get back to painting! I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
P.S. I know I owe many of you answers to emails and questions from comments. I will try and answer some of them soon!
