The Final Countdown

3 days.  That is all that’s left until we embark upon this new journey of ours.  To say there is a mix of excitement and nervousness would not do our emotions justice.  There is so much we are looking forward to and so much that may knock our socks off!

We have lofty goals for the first month.   Justin works full-time, I work part-time, school starts back mid August and we do plan on doing all of this list ourselves or with the help of family!

Our closing date is July 29th and before August 29th we want to accomplish the following:

1-) Remove the glorious popcorn from all 2400 sqft of the house and replace it with ceilings as smooth as a baby’s bottom.

2-) Remove the majority of the carpet, laminate, linoleum and replace it with something.  I’m struggling with this, our budget and my dream list.

3-) Remove grass cloth from walls in 2 rooms

4-) Paint, Paint, Paint

Then we will move in and continue to work our way through our dreams and necessities.

I think I am leaning towards a glossy black front door and shutters.  The inside color that keeps coming back to the top is a light green / lime color.  If the inside main color is that bold then I think the door may need to be a little less in your face!  What do you guys think?

Tomorrow I’m gonna tackle a little  sewing project with my girls.  We had planned on going to the water park, but it sounds as if it might rain.  The project involves this great fabric.  I will post pictures and steps for everyone!  Any guesses as to what I’m going to DIY?  Wish me luck!

  1. I’m going to guess kitchen chair covers or curtains? I love the fabric!! I’m a sucker for greens, too. We have several different shades in our old house and it never gets old. I cannot wait to see all that you do! Good luck and thanks for taking us on this journey!
