For the last 2 months, Mike and I have been trying to redecorate his apartment in Queens before I move in. Some big works (completely new bathroom, knock down a wall) and some do-it-yourself stuff (painting, scraping, sanding, moving).

I forgot to take pictures before we started doing the work, but I made these two videos with about half of the work done. You can see the half painted living room, the kitchen after we knocked down the wall, the new bathroom with the missing sink/vanity, the almost completely finished bedroom and the finished hobby room, now serving as a storage until the end of the works.

As soon as the contractor shows up again (he has been missing for 2 weeks now) and the bathroom is done, I'll post a video of the after.

And maybe another video one once my stuff is moved in and everything is organized. Not sure when that will be as I still have my apartment in Manhattan until August and I might rent it out furnished for a few months or to vacationers.

Let me know what you think.
