Happy Thursday, friends!
Okay, I love that quote up there. I’m in a much better place these days about my house now that demo is over. At least now, I feel like the huge mess/inconvenience/noise/clutter/dirt is for positive stuff (re-building!) and not negative stuff (ripping out). Even though we still have a lot to do…at least it’s forward, right? I would say that each day I wake up in kind of a different place. Most days, I’m all optimistic but some days, I’m really bummed out. Right now, being home is where you are supposed to be/want to be/in this crazy world, it’s the place to rest and recharge/it’s your sanctuary from all of the outside noise…but none of us want to be at home right now because it just feels weird. My goal is to stay positive and upbeat because I know my kids are watching and taking their cues from mom and dad…but you know. It’s all strange right now. Anyway…that’s where I am.
There isn’t a ton to share, but I thought I’d do a little check-in with you.
First…want to hear a big piece of great news????
There is finally silence at my house.
Do you hear it?
They removed the 42 fans and 7 dehumidifiers, and I about cried.
I hadn’t realized how much the noise had been bothering me until it was all gone. #allthepraisehands
It was hard for me to relax with all of that background noise, so now that it’s out, I feel much more zen 😉 .
…it’s been the big paint debate over here. Andrew and my mom keep telling me I need to pick one and stop fretting about it. Ha! There are just so many choices!! The wall on the left is Moderate White (and then again on the far right), then there is Patience in the middle. I put up a total of 8, but cannot decide. We’ve painted several walls but they’re either too gray or too white…both of which just aren’t warm enough for me.
Our great room floors have been ripped out, but now…
…they’re dry enough to put down the plywood (and then the real wood will sit on top of this). That’s a step, right?!
Speaking of floors…
…the master bath floors are finally gone. I’m also hunting down two new wallpapers (for both bathrooms that were flooded). I “think” I have them both selected now. The samples arrived, and I like them both. Why is picking out wallpaper so hard???? I don’t enjoy wallpaper or rug selecting. Both are hard for me.
I snapped this one right before they put the plywood down in our master bedroom too. Whoop! Whoop! #allthelittleprogressaddsup
Finally, remember the new addition?
Yeah, I forgot about it too.
Here is a before pic of the back of my house…
…and now, here is the after…
Lots of progress with that upstairs space!
Whew! A little bit of house lately for you guys.
I hope you all have a great Thursday! Sending you each so much love! xo
