We're homeowners! Yippee!! We finally received our keys Thursday after waiitng a week and 1/2 for the seller to send back their docs to our lender.
So... here is the house so far. The hubs worked only a 1/2 day on Thursday and went to the house, tore out all the carpet (which is a lot of work to do in one day), and tested some paint colors on the wall, which we didn't like. Then Saturday we woke up early and went over there and worked all day. We finished scraping all the glue off the floors, swept more than I've ever swept in my life, removed all the base boards, and the hubs removed the glass mirror from the wall (sorry Pobudz, it didn't come off in one peice). Then Sunday we went back again and worked till 2:00 and started painting. We got one color mostly done Throughout both living areas, and the hallways. We got the second coat started all with no AC the whole weekend in 110* weather.
I now have much more respect for what my husband does on a daily basis. My feet hurt so bad and each night I was POOPED!
Oh and we bought the wood floors but they didn't have them in stalk so we have to wait 2 weeks for them to come in. :(
Anyway, here are some pics of the progress:
My favorite thing about the house - my very own vanity in the master bedroom! Now I have room for my makeup and hair products without getting in Hub's way!
Dining Room - This is where the mirror wall used to be. This wall is going to have to be completely retextured.
Here's one of the walls with the paint. We decided to go with Glidden's Dapper Tan as the main color of the house and then we're using Family Legacy (which is one shade darker) as the accent color.
