We closed the deal on our house last Thursday. It was a bit of a bumpy end (with some unresolved issue) but we're in and we're happy.
I haven't blogged because we've been busy.
Wall prep sucks (that's plaster dust in the photo). The end result is amazing, but all that hole-filling, sanding and priming is not so fun. We have a bit of built-in bookshelf work to do too (we got a bit impulsive!).
This week my fab Mom and super-painter Uncle Ken have been painting our main room. It's their house warming gift to us and it is much appreciated. My next-door neighbour Keri has also been helping with painting and wall prep--she taught us some new techniques and totally rocks. We hope to paint the entire house over the next months and this gets us a good start. It also rids us of ugly green walls.
We're moving in officially December 21. I'm trying not to think too much about it because I have a LOT of packing still to do. It's more fun to play in my new house and than pack in the old spot.
