We officially closed on our house and the WORK has begun! It is such a blessing that all went through and we really own our first home. The minute we heard the news that all was in concrete, Friday afternoon- Andrew and dad headed over to the house to tear out the more than disgusting carpet. On Saturday morning, the boys made a run to the dump and then we began cleaning the nicotine stained walls and ceilings. Boy, did that make a difference! We wanted to have everything ready for our contractor to begin with a clean canvas on Monday morning. Andrew also took down some of the fixtures and installed a new screen in the sliding door. We then went to Home Depot to pick up samples of our paint choices to test them out on our clean walls. Considering we have decided to paint the entire house and ceilings all the same color, we went with a warm neutral in the Behr brand: Clair de Lune. I'm so happy with our choice and can't wait to see the color come to life on our walls.
Here are some pictures of a work in progress!
