I know I said I wasn't going to post any more pictures of the house until it was finished; but I'm a gal with very little patience. At the rate things are going, although there is a lot of activity, our "move in" date keeps getting pushed back. When I ask about when the carpet is going in I get the answer "not until the very end." I think the real reason is that when the carpet goes in, I'm letting the furniture company deliver the furniture.
But anyway, I went up yesterday and painted the garage door. Yep! I did it myself. Inside three of my window coverings have arrived thus far, so they went up too. And no, I didn't tackle that job myself, I had a handyman. So they are up in the Kitchen, Utility Room and Master Bedroom. I love the kitchen, because although I ordered the wood blinds, this time I got the 2-1/2 inch size and..... I opted for cloth tapes over the ropes that control up and down and slant. Wow! It makes them look sooooooo much better. I picked one that is dark brown, with little leaves scattered on it. Did the same in the Utility room, but the cloth tape in there is muted little squares with just a touch of tan in them.
The front door with it's big oval window in it has been painted bright red. The man who has the identical same house about 1/2 mile away, stopped by and asked if I thought the front door was bright enough. My answer was "no." lol
Here is the preview I promised -- only an outside photo for now. Sorry it is not a better photo, but with my eye problem it's very difficult for me to take pictures in bright sunlight.
Maybe someday we will get to actually move in and a bit of my stress will go away, in the meantime I remain fat and frustrated!
