Our San Francisco Condo in Transition January 9, 2012

Well, hopefully this post will appear more organized than I feel right now. Over the weekend, we moved, sold, packed up and cleaned our 2nd home, in San Francisco. Now we’re trying to find a place to put everything. I shouldn’t be complaining, because Mr. Wonderful did all the hard stuff.

Fortunately, we have storage space for the furniture we’ve decided to keep, but you can imagine what’s involved, since you know what moving’s like! I looked back at some pictures tonight, of all we accomplished in our little get-away. Mr. W. got to really put his woodworking and painting skills to the test, refacing all the cabinets in the home. He opened up the kitchen to the living area and installed crown molding and baseboards and painted the entire place. We hired out someone to replace the countertops and flooring, thank goodness! The man is handy and I think he really enjoyed the experience. Here are a few pictures you might enjoy of before we moved in, the kitchen under construction and what we ended up with. It was all a great adventure…in and outside the condo!

The living area, before we moved in and after we remodeled.

This was taking from the windows, (opposite angle), but you’ll be happy to know we replaced the mini blinds with 4″ plantation shutters.

Here’s the kitchen after Bob Mr. Wonderful removed the pocket door and corner wall of the kitchen. At this point, he had refaced the cabinets.

This was the master bedroom, before we moved in. Below, was afterwards.

Pretty fun to see the progress! Who knows where the next fixer-up stands, waiting for a little TLC…but we’re looking!

Until next time, thanks so much for stopping by! Your visits and comments mean so much to me!

    Congratulations on the sale! I love the lamps you chose for the master bedroom – they are gorgeous. One good thing about moving…it forces one to sort and clean out – I like that part! 🙂

    personally, I really liked the white formica in the kitchen better than the granite. ha ha! Beautiful job. I hope you don’t miss it too much, it is a nice place. But then again, the Fairmont is nice too!
