As if packing weren't enough, we decided we needed to paint everything so we would be sure there was no exposed lead paint. So for the last week, I've been painting painting packing painting packing packing painting. Ya. But I do have some great pictures for you guys!
The windows were really the worst off before cleaning and painting...
Then we thought, "Why stop at the windows and the walls?" so we re-sealed the floor.
I'm really glad we did this. We just got some high gloss polyurethane, and brushed it on with one of those lamb head applicator things. It cost $50 for the supplies, but the results were fabulous! The floor was in such bad shape before that even after we mopped, our feet were still turning black. It took us less than 2 hours to do this, and I'm very excited about the results! :-)
Just a little farmhouse eye-candy ;-)Here's my new living room. I can't wait to get my furniture in there and start arranging! You guys will help me figure out where everything goes, right?
