Weekend Warriors; Carpet and (most) furniture is in!

We are finally down to the final stages of finishing the upstairs!
I can't believe it has been a year since we moved in and made plans to make this wasted space liveable.
I am beyond excited to have it done and be able to decorate and unpack items that have been boxed and waiting for a place since we moved in!
I have been feeling like I was living in transition this whole time.
Not able to fully unpack and make the house my own.

Not to mention my current nesting instincts.
 I can't hardly wait to put together the nursery.
All the baby stuff has just been piling up in the corner of the living room .

Two weekends ago we finished up the dry wall and sanding every square inch of the rooms.
Monday my mom and I primered all the walls and ceilings.
The rest of the week we had a few great friends over to help us paint everything!!
Friday the carpets were installed.
Saturday the new bed & mattress came!

Here are the new stairs with lovely carpet on them. 
The replaced wall with bead board and the exposed chimney.

Not quite finished with the wall on the left side yet.


My new light over the stairs

Looking into the nursery with my leaning mirror in the corner.

Looking into the mast bedroom.
(no trim is up yet, that's why the window looks a little strange & ghetto)
My lovely king frame that I have been storing away for the last 2 years!

The hallway

We painted the ceiling and angled walls white,
lower half walls light grey 
and  the accent wall behind the bad dark grey.

The light over the bed

Still a short list of things to get done, but it looks pretty great so far!
What do ya think?!
