Thank you, ladies, for the encouragement and good wishes! kbrison, your velcro suggestion for the window coverings is brilliant. I forgot to explain how such a huge project could possibly be befitting for a ME-along. Our current home is roughly 900 sq ft, with no real claimable space for sewing and crafting. The routine goes something like this: give kidlets breakfast at dining room table, shoo them off to school, get out a project, spread it out on the table, clear everything off the table when school lets out so kids can do homework at the table, serve dinner and clear, drag out the project, move it so laundry can be folded, ... lather, rinse, repeat... Hubby heard an earful about my wanting a house with more rooms than what we have now. Our realtor patiently showed us several places before this one. I cashed in my meager retirement to buy it. My very own space, with my name titled first on the deed, since it is "mine." Selfish? Absolutely. Deserved? You betcha! lol
Here is a look at the stained kitchen cabinets and paint color:
Proper pics will be posted when everything is done.
Hubby was thrilled when he pulled up the carpet and discovered those wonderful hardwood floors:
Sometimes the magnitude of work needed seems overwhelming. We are trying to be patient and prioritize the projects. Hopefully things won't be too costly. Oh guess what- the neighbors think that the detached garage is encroaching on their property by ten feet. *sigh*
I hope all of you are having an awesome day!
