And lots of it!!
last, the renovation is finished, as of about 5:00pm
yesterday! We had circle guests coming over at 6pm
and in fact, I was still putting on a few finishing
touches when they arrived! It was quite a pain,
but I really loved every minute of it.
As I was
doing it, I channeled the energy I was expending into
positive change and bettering our life together.
It was very much a labor of love and I'm quite happy
with the results. I'm also very happy to be done.
Pictures! I've got pictures!
This is the ugly stained carpet that I desperately
wanted to be rid of in a big way.
This is my fat back, hard at work, covered with paint,
not knowing Eric had a camera. >:< Pulling
endless staples until my fingers were bruised and
swollen and hating every pair of needle nosed pliers
As the destruction continued.
This is me, happy to be done.
This is Nathan, trying to wake up.
These are a few of our books (small percentage) and the
blue rug I got from the thrift shop.
This is KC the cat on a hairy green rug I bought.
These are the curtains I bought for $5, took home and
realized that it was all valances.
This is my dining room floor.
This is my living room floor.
This is the other side of my living room floor.
This is my hallway
This is the lovely threshold my husband made where we
ended to carpet destruction.
Nathan and KC. He's like the girl on Charlie Brown
u who carries a cat over her arm everywhere.
OK, now he's awake.
with that, damned if I'm not feeling nauseated yucky!
I'm going to save this so you can see the pictures and
I'm going to bed. Blech. Guess there will be
no celebratory liquor tonight. More like
