We did the floors VERY LAST (if you've ever refinished hardwood floors you know why - if you haven't - just follow our lead) and I think they came out beautifully. We had to dust the walls & ceilings afterwards, but that is a quick (albeit dirty) job.
We also completely remodeled the upstairs bathroom and decorated it just like the downstairs bathroom (simplicity was key). Unfortunately I don't have any photos of the BEFORE upstairs bathroom (trust me...the blue plastic tile and pink tub/toilet/sink were a sight) I'll try and find a similar photo just to show the change
5 years later and these floors still amaze me - and I never cease to be dumbfounded by the change in the bathroom. (Trust me, if I'd remembered to take actual photos you would be AMAZED at how awful it was to begin with)
The last thing we refinished was the attic/bonus room. This is another space I didn't photograph to start with (I didn't want to remember how awful it was) but it started as a red-walled, yellow/brown carpet wonderland. It smelled bad, and I'm pretty sure it was used to store everyone's old junk that didn't make it to the trash cans. Here are some photos of what it looked like after we finished with it:
At this point in the remodel the house was FINALLY ready to be moved into.....I can't wait to share those photos!
