I really wanted to title this post, "Ella's in DA HIZZY!" because I'm just so excited (and I can't hide it?) but I thought that might be pushing it. I've got such mad street cred, yo.
What were we talking about?
Ooooh, right - the press room! If you remember (I'm still trying to forget) we started this renovation waaaay back in...what, June? When I purchased Ella, we knew we'd eventually have to get her out of the garage and into the house. Thankfully, we own a traditional split - which means we don't have a basement, our first floor is right at grade. This is the ideal situation for getting a letterpress into your house because there's no stairs involved.
We're not exactly done. The floor needs to be finished, trim needs to go down, we have to tile the fireplace and install a built-in bookcase. BUT, we did get Ella in the house finally - so here's a sneak peek of her happy in her new home:
Even Pi approves!
Those mirrored closets house oodles of storage space for all of my paper (and craft crap). This is the first time in my life, I think, where I've had more space than I know what to do with. And they look sick, right? Those mirrors bounce so much light into the room.
I have no idea when we'll be completely done (is any home owner ever completely done?), but I can't wait to show you the finished product. Mike has done an amazing job renovating this room almost completely by himself. Feels like a whole new house.
