We ended up getting keys Friday evening and for the last three days it has been a mad rush to get stuff done before we move in this coming Saturday!
We are painting all of the walls white:
(it's taking for.ev.er.)
We pulled off hideous contact paper that somehow was everywhere.
I actually liked the original brown gingham but the ugly celestial was put right over the top of it.
My awesome brother was able to get the ugly slate off of the hearth.
The next step is to put a fresh coat of white paint on all of the brick.
Things are slowly but surely getting crossed off the list!
And we are spending way more time/money at Home Depot than we ever thought possible.
I wish we could just go on vacation and have all this stuff done for us by the time we got back.
Oh did I mention that Thursday is our 5 year anniversary?
How romantic to spend it painting and eating subway or Costco hot dogs.
It will all be worth it though!
