Hello & Update on us
Hi, its been a while
barefoot: good luck with everythinG! It will all fall into place.
so.... we got the keys to our new house on the 1st of may and since then have been doing lots of work. i preped the walls in the living room, kitchen, dining room and have painted all 3 (the living room is this colour green
, dining room is a kind of greyish robins egg blue & kitchen also green, but more limey.. with white cupboards). im still working on the cabinets in the kitchen. i caught a cold sunday so i have taken a few days off to rest. but once i get back to it, hopefully friday (we go to the city to get more paint and supplies tomorrow) it should only take me another few hours to get the cabinets just how i want them.
once that job is done i will begin on my sons room (blue), then daughters room (light springy green)..
im not sure what im going to paint our bedroom yet. i have a full new gallon of paint that my MIL brough which i plan to use in the hallways. its a warm brown, almost gold (benjamin moore) that i may use in the end just to save buying more.. but im not sure. i have never had a brown bedroom before.
my dp has been busy destroying the bathroom/laundry room. there was a ton of water damage/mold in there. we knew about it on buying the place and figured it was doable.. it turns out its not as bad as we had thought it would be. he is also emptying out the basement of crap from previous owners. there is some nasty stuff down there (old preserves and bags of mildewy clothes. old shoes ect) but also some cool treasures. he has listed a few things on ebay already
my mom is coming to visit next week along with my dad & 2 brothers
and are bringing flooring and windows, bathtub, toilet and sink ect. im hoping it all gets done while they are here to help.
i have been packing stuff.. i guess maybe im doing it kind of backwards but im packing what i definately want to take and then im going to get rid of the rest. since we will be living between 2 houses for a while i figure its the easiest way. we plan to move all of the big stuff when my family is visiting since they are bringing a big open trailer, then we will move all of the smaller stuff with our van.
its quite a process!
