Done, Done and Done

At this point, we can finally check off a few rooms as "done". The master bedroom, guest room, and office are all done. After we had the floors polished I had to install baseboards, then repaint. Next on the list is the landscaping in tandem with the guest bathroom.

The guest room:

The office:

And the master bedroom:

Dining area also is done:


We bought our house with a cracked Mistlite glass panel between the jack and jill bedrooms. At the time I didn't think it would be a particularly difficult thing to source, but it proved to be quite the challenge. I called several local glass companies. No dice. I searched internet forums and found someone who had luck with a supplier in Canada. I called them and they no longer carried it. Everyone said it was no longer available in the length I needed. I was about to paint these rooms and just live with the cracked glass, but decided to make one last effort. I opened up google maps, typed "glass", and started making calls. I probably called about 30 different shops when I finally struck gold. Paul's Glass on Anaheim in Long Beach could get it. They seemed so casual about it I almost didn't believe them. But I put in the order and had it in 2 days, tempered.

Glass gone. Wow, things were really a mess in this area just a couple weeks ago!

New glass in.

Painted. The continuation of the brown ridge beam to the outside is one of my favorite things.
