There's something to be said for manual labor once in a while. At least I sleep really well when I work!
Woke up at 5:30 knowing I wouldn't go back to sleep. With a pool fence installer, a painter, a floor measurer and a locksmith due at the new house within hours, I showered and dressed ridiculously earlier than normal.
Now, many many many hours later - I am proud of all we accomplished today. I'd post a photo, but I left the camera at the house.
The two highlights were scraping plaster frou-frou decor off an entire wall in the living room and wallpaper off the exceptionally high bathroom ceiling. Do you know very many people who put wallpaper border on a ceiling? I don't.
Last night, Angie and Kristi were my heroes for joining me in wallpaper scraping and chair rail demolition.
Bright and early tomorrow morning, a professional painter and his crew will start the home makeover. I can't wait!!! It seems wondrous we'll have a house that will be so much our taste.
I'm listing the paint colors we've chosen - see if you can guess which room any of the following colors will paint.
