We Are Weekend Warriors!

Oh my oh my!
We closed on our house Friday morning! I am so ready to be out of this apartment!
We've been busy all weekend getting the new house ready for the move in. So I've got a pretty big post for the day.

Here's the living room, we're not painting it right now. The previous owner left us these chocolate colored curtains..lucky me!

This is our dining roon, we're not painting it either..I love the chandelier, and the doors.

Our will be unfurnished for a while, our current furniture will go down there eventually. It will be our TV room too.

Now for some Before & After...

This room is my new scrap room (yay!) and it was this very ugly orange..

It has wonderful windows.

And now it is a beautiful Caribbean blue...this is my new happy place and I can't wait to get all my stuff moved in.

So much better.

This is our guest was the nursery.

I don't have a finished shot..but I have one of me working..and one of Katie doing nothing.

Still doing nothing.

This was perhaps the biggest project of the weekend..the ugly ugly kitchen. The counter top is green..and the walls are red..and I'm not really sure what they were thinking.

That space is where my brand new refrigerator is going to go..on Wednesday!

It was a very long process..and we're still not completely done...but we're getting there.

We painted all the cabinets white, Jonathan is still working on the fronts of the doors, but already it looks so much better.

And we painted the walls light green. Next year when we get our tax credit we're going to replace the green counter tops with probably dark gray ones.

It looks 100% better, and we only have 2 rooms left to paint. We couldn't have gotten as far as we did without my mom and sister helping.
I can't say how tired I am, so we're hopefully calling it an early night. More updates soon I hope.



  1. So much more to do, and so little time.

  2. Darling, we have the rest of our lives. I never want to move again, it's too much work. We just bought our 'forever home'.
