Progress on the ‘turn a house to a home’ frontier

Chris and I bought a house at the end of June.

Here’s Chris mailing our first mortgage payment.

Yikes, that was painful.

While I’m not living there yet

(we’re waiting until we get married to move in together)

there’s no rule that says I have to wait

until we’re married to make it fabulous!

 

I don’t really have any amazing photos yet of the transformation;

they’ll come later in a big reveal!

 

but for now…

here is one corner of the living room:

This is a big chair that some friends of my parents gave to us.

My 2 favorite paintings are on the wall behind it

I can’t, for the life of me, find a lampshade long enough to fit this tall lamp properly.

here is my fabulous green chair from world market

along with the green lamps I spray painted earlier

and now begins the process of removing hideous wallpaper

and applying a bazillion coats of primer

to cover over red paint in the kitchen …

Chris vs. Wallpaper

ps: comes of much nicer with a heavy-duty steamer, but still a very tedious process.

 

me vs. primer

the primer won…. this time.

(eek…crazy eyes!)

by the way, that little bit of primer was hiding on my elbow

(in the shape of a heart, I might add)

for at least 24 hours after I’d showered

I wonder what clients at work thought?

why didn’t anyone tell me!!!

and how did I not notice it when I brushed my

teeth or did my hair that morning?

hmmm…

silly paint.
