So much excitement everyone: as of two weeks ago we FINALLY had our AC unit installed! Now our life doesn’t feel so much like camping… just living in a fun house :). Considering, however, that it’s only 54 degrees out right now, we may end up using our new furnace more than the AC.
We have had a couple other projects underway over the past few weeks, too. One of the most exciting has been starting the process of banishing honey oak from our home, beginning with one of our bathrooms. We still need to change out some hardware before we can put everything back together, but below is a little preview of the new color.
Tyler’s parents came for a visit over Labor Day weekend, and Eric and Tyler rebuilt the landing at the bottom of our basement stairs. The original landing was donated to the garbage bin due to high mold content (ick).
Possibly the most exciting news we have is that we are finally at a point where we can begin to change paint colors! We decided to start “small” and paint the spare bedroom. Below is what it used to look like… Not really attractive.
We decided on a blissfully neutral color for this room and most of the house. After staring at stripes and rainbow-colored sunbeams for 3 months, we are ready for something easy on the eyes. It feels so good to have one more room look clean and polished! The trim is being painted as we speak, so we’ll be sure to show full before and after photos once everything is put back together.
And last but not least… A few very exciting trips have been made to the Home Depot to pick out paint samples for the other bathrooms and laundry room. Colors have been decided and we can’t wait to get them up on the walls! More to come on this later :D.
