Finally, we're in our house! It is a beautiful home.....solid and well mantained. In the days ahead I'll be unpacking lot's of boxes and assembling all of the rooms in the house. I'll be taking pictures and sharing my progress. Please feel free to make comments or suggestions along the way.
After closing last Tuesday, Coach and I headed to the house (built in 1970), to begin painting. We had 36 hours to paint before the movers arrived. So I jumped right in and tackled the three large areas. I painted the Family Room, our Master Bedroom and the Entry/ Living/Dining. I finished the last area at 3:00 am of the morning the movers arrived.
The color is Sherwin Williams, Amazing Gray. I had it mixed at the Benjamin Moore store with their brand of paint. Pretty, huh?
After being out of our home since February, move-in day was a big deal. I've had plenty of time to decorate in my mind but it was so exciting to watch the furniture arrive, one piece at a time.
Each additional item adding interest and dimension.
Same old furniture in a new setting....makes all the difference.
Beth, drove up for a few days and provided energy and enthusiam. She completely unpacked and organized my kitchen. Encouraging me to let go of all of the excess dishes and decor, in order to better access the essentials. As you might imagine this wasn't easy. In fact it was exhausting but Beth was patient. Explaining her way of thinking and challenging me to change.
She was a tremendous help and inspiration. I'm so grateful, Beth for your help. You made unpacking fun! Thank you so much.
