Life is good!!! This whole house hunting adventure has been a process...finally on the 15th I received my keys. What an incredible feeling!!! For those of you that don't know just over 7 years ago I was living on the streets going nowhere and now I own my own home. What a blessing! God is Good! I'm kinda speechless and in awe at the moment....someone pinch me
I need to start off by saying I don't like to paint, I hate manual labor and I'm kind of testy when it comes to these things....this next week ought to be fun! I wish I was rich and could hire it all out! My sisters keep laughing at me because I have these grand ideas of what I would like to do and they keep asking, "who is going to do that?" Teri called from Utah yesterday and she was rather impressed that I was actually painting!
My flowers I bought for the front porch....
DAY ONE DAY ONE DAY ONE DAY ONE DAY ONE DAY
I hired my friend Jody to scrape all my ceilings....she is a trooper!!!
Picking paint colors is HARD!!!!! Vicki has been a trooper with me through the process. I must have spent (who knows how many) hours trying to find the right shade. Wasted $10 and got a good laugh!
Finally found the shade I wanted and they could not match it correctly....FRUSTRATING!!!! Vicki saved the day and you'll see in Day 2 I went with Gobi Dessert.
Ripped out the nasty carpet in the family room and found some mold....yum! But now this room is ready to paint!
Design on a Dime Tip: Vicki and I were at ACE and I decided I need new house numbers....so I bought the numbers for $4.99 a piece. After spending $20 the light bulb went off....why not spray paint them. They look brand new and it cost me $3.99!!!!
DAY TWO DAY TWO DAY TWO DAY TWO DAY TWO
The painting has begun....I budgeted $300 for paint and have already spent $418.40. I still need more paint for the living room, my room and Cameron's room! Back to Home Depot tomorrow!!!
The repair man showed and he could not get the part so I get a whole new garage door opener plus he flashed (get your minds out of the gutter) my skylights!
Serves me right to try and take a break, leaned right up against the wet wall!
Here is the color of the accent wall in the living room. It's more pink then I thought it would be but I love it! I hate the color I picked for the kitchen so back to the drawing board there!!!!!
Decisions, decisions, decisions!!!!!
Tomorrow's tasks: Ceilings will be textured and Vicki and I are shopping! I think the best thing right now is I get to spend time with my sister....Teri I sure do miss you in this process but thanks for picking up the phone every time I call!!!!!
