Ron's house is 50's style ranch house he bought a few years back that he's slowly been remodeling. Since we've been together he has gratefully turned over the cosmetic aspects of the house to me. He LOVES doing the construction, creating new bones from old bones so to speak, but feels somewhat out of his depth at putting the finishing touches on the projects, picking paint colors, decorating and adding the touches that move it from a bare room to a warm and welcoming space. That's the part of having a house I love the most!! I get such a kick out of bringing a bare space to life, decorating it in a way that adds personality and personalization to the room. Even though I'm not living there yet (and currently the loose plan is that I'll move in sometime late next year after he's done the needed renovations to the bedroom and master bath to accommodate my belongings) he's so happy to be able to turn the decorating part of his renovations over to me, and I am so happy to accept that!! I'm hoping to make this thread a sort of diary of changes to the house. I wish I'd taken a whole bunch of before photos so that I have some record of the changes already made, but I didn't, so I'll just start now and capture what I can. Several months ago, he replaced the old full sized glass panels in the den with french doors. I'll take an actual picture of the finished product when I'm over there this w/e. Our current project is creating a wall unit/bookcase/cabinets on the far wall of the den. Again, no before pictures, but imagine that wall as just bare wall around the window before he added the beginnings of the bookshelves and cabinets.
