Week in Review 7

So it’s been 2 weeks since I checked into Meghan’s weekly list love party… I’d say sorry but I’m not :0 We’ve spent the past two weeks in total re-do mode painting and deep cleaning majority of our house and it’s starting to feel like home.  Here’s the rundown.

So. Much. Paint. We spent one weekend doing the first floor with a little help from my dad to reach the tallest point of our ceilings.

We spent the next weekend painting our family room together and then I knocked out our bedroom by myself when Z went to work.

I borrowed my aunt’s steam cleaner and deep cleaned all our carpets, especially former bird room turned office (yay no more bird poop carpet!).

Z went on a de-spidering spree, collecting and freeing almost a dozen of them to the backyard.

I ventured back into the world of crafting by giving our couch pillows fresh covers and painting the really cool (if I do say so myself) waveform piece that’s going to hang above our bed. IMG_7605

We successfully built an office desk (even if it took two days). We also built a bookshelf, a coffee table, and two nightstands. I’m calling it quits on the furniture assembly for a while.

My dad came back over to help us remove the (awkwardly placed) ceiling fan that was in our hallway. While he was here he helped me install the wall grates that I’d unsuccessfully tried to hang on 3 previous occasions.

Our furniture was delivered (no assembly required!) except they forgot our couch feet… so some assembly required after I pick those up later this week.

After a whirlwind couple of weeks I’m looking forward to using my spring break from work to settle. I’m hoping to hang some pictures, maybe touch up some of the trim painting, and continue our ongoing war with the spiders. I’ll probably watch a decent amount of food network too because #balance.
