We've owned the home for close to four weeks now and we got a head start on it right away! We've been out of town the last two weekends so it's been a little slower in progress, but it is getting there. We have over two weeks until our lease ends here, so it's getting close to moving time.
The wallpaper removal took close to a week to do. I finished it up while Ben re-textured the walls to match the others. We celebrated that last piece of yellow coming off with a nice Bajio shrimp pineapple salad.
Ben taught me to texture. I textured the window sill and I am so proud. Haha
Giving the yard some TLC will have to come last. Contrary to popular belief (at least by me), you do still have to pull weeds if you have synthetic grass. :P
While my mom was here we tried to pick paint colors. This was a lot harder than I expected, and every color just seemed wrong. We painted three other walls with swatches too. We didn't use any of them in the end.
We decided to roll the whole house and I took to the first wall, our chosen color, "Indecision."Why do our walls look lavender. Crap.
Ben took out our ceiling color that was matched by Dunn Edwards, and it was supposed to be close to white and came out very dark. Definitely not a 95% match... maybe like, 20%... Well, ...shux.
Wait a sec... this ceiling color is definitely not right, but I kind of like it. Let's paint a wall with it?
The tile no longer looks yellow now that we've brought the gray out of it. It looks so different.
This past weekend the carpet guys came out because we've been debating replacing it because the master is worn beyond comeback. I think we'll probably just replace the master for now.
Meanwhile, we're booking reservations at the Buhr resort. Hopefully you don't mind a blow-up bed. :]
