We have been home for 8 weeks now. And we still have a lot of work to do. Rather than dwell on what is left, let’s show off what we’ve done!
The interior walls are almost all painted. I still need to paint closets and the mud room and do touch-ups throughout the whole house.
Stella’s room is painted (she picked a color much like orange sherbet). Stella helped with much of the painting in her room, and we added multi-colored polka dots today. Curtains in her room and the master bedroom are hemmed and hanging.
Chris put up all the shelving in the living room, installed the credenza cabinets, sanded and stained the credenza top and my desk.
Biz got a little tuckered when unpacking the books:
Chris also installed all of the cabinet doors in the kitchen, middle bedroom, and bathroom.
Chris assembled and installed the bathroom drawers, towel racks, etc.
And although the landscaping is not happening right away, we did manage to plant the small area between the front sidewalk and fence; Chris sanded, stained, and poly-coated the front door too.
I am looking forward to hanging artwork to make everything seem even more warm and homey.
Like I said, there is still so much to do, but we are getting there! And we are so happy to be home.
