This post has been a long time coming but I just couldn't wait any longer to brag about the amazing work Jon is doing on our house. We bought our house last March and, with few exceptions, Jon has spent every weekend and most weekdays working to make it a pretty fine lookin' pad. Sometimes to trecharous results. You might remember the previous nail through the toe incident. We recently had a nail through the finger incident. He made me take pictures... haven't gotten myself to post them yet. Theyre pretty gross. This morning, a can of spray paint exploded on him and he went to work with a face dotted with white paint.
For this post, I'll concentrate on our main family/living room area. This is what the room looked like originally.
Every wall in the house was a yellow-y off white. Jon has always wanted to try building a wainscot so he gave it a try.
Now you may be thinking, who in their right mind would post a picture of a house looking this messy? But, this is my 'before' model. Do they ever put a stitch of makeup or anything attractive looking on the 'before' model. No way! It only makes the 'after' shot look that much better :)
And after a dab of caulk here and there, a little bit of hole filler, and a touch of paint, we have our downstairs.
It has really turned out nice. We are still working on a place for a television. Big Bertha there in the corner is only a temporary solution.
So not only has Jon pretty much single-handedly changed every wall of this house, he has also built some of the decor. Here are a few of his latest projects.

And this is his remodel to the original lamp hanging in our staircase.
