Welcome to our humble abode. We welcome all visitors, but not mice. Hear that, ya sneaky little squeakers. We're after you!
I hope lots of our friends and family will see the house in person sooner versus later, but I'm also going to give you a little tour here. It'll also be fun to compare before and after shots. Today we'll start with the main floor.
Here's the front of our house back before we got three feet of snow last Friday. Oh my goodness, we've owned our house for almost one week! Yesterday we had some bare spots in the grass and less than 6 inches in most other places. The grass poking through was green so it definitely enjoyed its spring soaking.
Here's what you see as you open the front door.
We'll tour the upstairs in a few days. Yesterday we went and painted some more ceilings, closed off some mouse entrance holes, and started to prime walls. The hardwood will be done today and the carpet will be done on Friday. It's starting to feel so real. Pinch me! Is this really happening? Obviously it needs lots of updating, but I hope this gives you a feel for our home and all of its "perfect for us" perfection.
Also, I am terrible, horrible, rotten at all things decorating. Any tips or ideas are welcome. I can't say I'll follow them because I'm also really cheap and hate spending money on anything other than books or school supplies or note cards to send to people, but I'll take it into consideration.
So, what do you think?
