We've been lucky to have some help along the way. For instance, my mother-in-law's boyfriend kindly helped us hook up our dryer (needed a different cord) and install those new sink fixtures in our guest bath.
And our wonderful brother-in-law got us a great deal on paint for our bedrooms! Now if we could've only convinced him to help us paint them too - haha, oh well. We finally finished the first of 3 rooms last night.
|Before: bright yellow - yuck|
|Mid-painting: Primer on the walls|
|After: a nice calming, neutral color, aah|
|Goodbye hideous safari paper|
Last, but not least, we just received our beautiful patio furniture set. We unpacked the ginormous box last night and set all the pieces out. This morning I attempted to assemble the two swivel chairs. And, I can't seem to get the nuts and bolts to tighten like they should. Probably my error but I couldn't help but muttering a few choice words about the manufacturer before giving up. So there they sit - waiting to be assembled.
In the meantime, we still have boxes to unpack and haven't done any decorating. Yep, we've lived here for a month now and I've yet to put a picture on the wall.
Looks like its going to be a busy 8 days around here!!
