After getting over the flu last week and strep throat this week, I'm back!  Eric has been busy with prepping and painting the hallway and foyer the last few weeks.

A few days ago we got new doors for the entire house too! 

It's going to look so great when it's all said and done, but here is a sneak peak....

Lovely carpet in the hallway.  We used it as a drop cloth while painting it this week.

about to unveil what's under the carpet....

surprise!!! beautiful wood floors.... why did the previous owners not show these off?!

This upcoming weekend my family is coming in town to help with the foyer.  Remember the closet we took out a few weeks ago (blog post here)??  Tommy is going to patch the wall where the closet used to be and help re-do the staircase.

Looking forward to making big strides in 2011 at the Anderson household!
