It needed a bit of of love to say the least. We had grand dreams as newlyweds moving in. Thedining roomwould be filled with fabulous newdining sets. Sigh. How I love dark wood. It just makes me smile. While we had our hopes set high onun-mauve counter-tops,new sinksandbrilliant paint colors, the re-modeling has slowedstoppedhalted never really started. We made it as far as repainting the master from this:
(Yes, your eyes are working correctly. That's mauve, navy and pink sponge paint you see. All made complete with a resplendent hunter green, navy and mauve column border. Oh baby, oh baby.) to this:
Which, I must say, is a vast improvement. I suppose grand-master-painter-David did change the outside from this:
Which makes me happy every time I drive into my driveway! : ) If I were a realtor (which I never could be..they sell things...which is not a skill of mine!) I would say "Now, this house has great curb appeal!"
Did that read as awkward as it typed? Just curious.
Recently I have been inspired. I have seriously been feeling convicted about A) the amount of "stuff" we have and B) the way our house doesn't even remotely reflect our taste/us as a family. Aside from the talking toys. Those definitely reflect Sesame.
So I have been psycho-purging lady lately. Our closet has been cleaned out 3 times, I've started getting rid of, wait for it, books, and; there are currently paint samples painted on walls in three areas of our house.
It's time people. It's time for the dreams to become a reality. : ) I can't wait! : ) While I may not have new counter tops or toilets by the end of this, there will be new curtains. Yay.
