But really, this blog is supposed to be about building our house, and as you may have guessed, there wasn't a whole lot of that going on this winter. We thought we could push through, but as it turns out, we're just a couple of namby-pambies. And we had some good excuses! For example.....
1.) That bedroom I mentioned remodeling. Well, that, of course, took way longer than anticipated. (insert sarcastic look of surprise here). But it did turn out lovely, if I do say so myself! And Brian and I did everything ourselves with the exception of the carpet! So here are some befores and afters:
And the best parts are the little reminders of home! My mirror, lamp, curtains, bedding, and shower curtain (and a few of my paintings). Finally, an oasis in the Meme and Papa Desert. (Of course Meme and Papa would say that we've turned the better half of their house into an oasis/dumping ground, but this particular room really feels like ours). Plus, it's a nice little "thank you" to leave for Meme and Papa once we've finally moved out.
