We did, however, have someone come in and replace our wobbly front step and pathway.

Living Room - not a drastic change, but it gives it a brighter, more modern look.
Dining Room - I like how this turned out... it's probably one of my favourite rooms.
Kitchen - this shows you the two-tone colours we picked, which you couldn't see from the floor installation pic.
And finally here is the office/spare bedroom. This is where you'll be sleeping!

Luckily the kitchen wallpaper was much easier - it came off in large sections at a time.
After the wallpaper was off, we began priming all the woodwork. That blue tape costs 6 bucks a roll... we've probably gone through nearly 10 rolls already!
The postman stopped delivering our mail because he saw the newspaper over the windows and thought the place had been abandoned!

We have a proper wood-burning fireplace, which is should come in handy for the Chicago winters (and making s'mores).
To the right of the fireplace is the dining room. As you can see, the previous owner was fond of the old colonial style. Isn't the wallpaper... um... 'lovely'?
This is our eat-in kitchen, complete with Burger King tile floor.
This is the bathroom/washroom/lavatory/loo/bog, whatever you wanna call it.
We decided to keep the tiling since it was in such good condition.
This is the main bedroom. The lamp in the picture is now hung from the ceiling in the basement (seriously)!
This door leads out to the backyard.This is the 2nd bedroom, which we will be turning into an office/guest room.
