I'm Back! Let's celebrate!

I'm so happy to report that we are back home!  It's still total chaos here, with half of the house a construction zone, and currently no fridge and no downstairs furniture.  But it's still home-sweet-home, and we are all thrilled to be here.  Read on down to the end of this post for a special celebration sale announcement!

As promised, here's a pic of my new Ikea desk, which the hubs put together for me yesterday in record time:

It feels a lot more permanent and substantial than my folding table!  This pic makes my office look oh-so neat and tidy, right?  Well, here's the rest of the story:

That's the cabinetry for the laundry room, waiting to be installed and painted.  And in the big box is my new laundry room sink.  So, I've eeked out a corner of normalcy in all this, but it's still a big construction zone.

Here are some other updates for you.  When our story left off, here's what the laundry room looked like:

And here's how it looks this morning:

New walls, new paint, new tile floor (what do you think?) just waiting for grout.  And here's where we left the old bathroom shower (before demo):

Here's the current state of things -- new subway tile, also waiting for grout:

Last on our little tour today is our master bedroom, which looked like this:

And now, miraculously, looks like this:

The workers have really done an amazing job!  But I'm afraid I'm going to have nightmares about the way that wet subfloor looked and smelled.....  ICK.

Thanks for joining me on this little tour.  I'll keep you posted as things continue to get put back together!  And I'm so excited to have my computer back that all sorts of new things are coming to the shop as quickly as I can list them.  To celebrate, let's have a little private sale, why don't we?  For the rest of this week (through Friday, September 10, 2010), mention this blog post in your notes to seller, and get free shipping on your entire order from my Etsy shop!  (I'll refund your shipping charges through paypal.)

Happy Labor Day, and happy shopping!
