They say: "Let's Build Something Together",
We say: Bring it on!
Here's a list of the things we've done so far in the 13 days since we've moved in:
1. Re-screened the door, cleaned, painted AND added a new light fixture to the porch
|We're also practically professional electricians, wiring all these light fixtures...|
|Who knew re-screening would be so fun and easy?! |
We also re-screened 3 windows in the house!
|Jasper was a big help.|
2. Cleaned the garage drywall with bleach and painted with primer (to get rid of the nasty mildew)
|BLEACH. On the walls. My mother would be so proud...|
3. Covered up the ginormous hole above the fireplace in the living room with a mirror, installed track lighting and filled in some large holes in the ceiling
|We still need to add a few accent pieces, but a huge improvement!|
4. Although we didn't really do much 'work' towards this one, we got our new bed via FedEx today and set it up! (Our bedroom has been the 'neglected' room so far...)
|We got a memory foam bed that came super vacuum packed in a roll and got to watch it 'puff up' with air!|
(Bella approves of the new bed ... although with any luck, she'll continue sleeping on HER bed on the floor!)
Also, as we were unpacking, this wicker basket re-surfaced and Jasper jumped right in for a nap. When he was a baby, he used to LOVE hanging out in this basket until I filled it up with socks. It seems he's re-claiming what he thinks is his! :) (Granted, he doesn't fit quite as well as he once did..)
