Flip this House!

So Ryan and I have grown to love HGTV...its probably the only tv show that we both agree on watching together! :) I have learned to deal with some of his shows (sports, law and order SVU, The Office, etc.) and he has learned to deal with some of mine (bachelor, biggest loser, greys anatomy, etc.) But the one we both will watch at any time is HGTV. We started watching it when Ryan was on the house hunt, but then kept watching it after that. Its like an unspoken motivation to help us do things with our house to help it improve and be somewhat of an investment! Its been fun to do together! Here are a few pictures of some things we have been working on! We have a list (you know me! :)) on the fridge of improvements we want to do...let's just hope these all get done. :)
Ryan tried to break out our guest bath mirror to put a pretty mirror instead...lets just say it still looks like this right now :) We are still working on this one :

Sweet Holli and Jay gave us this chandelier from their house (ours was an ugly outdated silver one)...I took her out to lunch because she wouldnt let me pay for deal ever on a great chandelier!!!!

There was an AWFUL fluorescent light in the kitchen...we put a simple bronze fixture instead:

Molly and I surprised Ryan and painted the master bathroom while he was gone to Tampa for the Au game! Thanks Mols for your help! A true friend helps paint! :)

Ryan stained the fireplace:
