I am a little hesitant to put up any photos since I haven't done ANYTHING decorating wise.
But I'll show you a few:
BEFORE - looking from living room to kitchen - how gross is this paint and carpet? The kitchen had linoleum from the 70s I think.
AFTER - Ripped out all flooring, painted and new base boards. You can see there is still a mess in the kitchen. They delivered my new stove, but the old gas gasket thingy was too big. So I had to have it replaced. Stove can't be installed until this Friday. So it's sitting in the middle of the kitchen.
The walls are Pearl White with the trim in Swiss Coffee. There is a slight contrast and I like it. I didn't want to go crazy with color for the paint because I get sick of things easily. So if I feel a need to redecorate, I can just switch out some rugs and pictures and be done with it.
BEFORE - Living room. I hate the fireplace - it's like creepy tile with little flowers in the corner. BUT it is way too much of an undertaking to re-do now. I did bust out the broken tiles on the floor.
AFTER - it's much lighter and brighter. You can't tell in the pic, but I scraped the ceilings too. It just feel cleaner in there, ya know?
What you see is this pic are the only remaining pieces of furniture. I don't even like these pieces and they will be going as soon as the new can be brought in.
So there ya have it so far. My closet is almost organized. I'll post those pics tomorrow - maybe.
Regarding running - I had an 8 miler scheduled this weekend and it just didn't happen. Based on a few things out of my control, the move & clean up took longer than expected. I'm so grateful for my friends and fam who stepped in and helped out. Tomorrow morning will be my first run in my new 'hood. I have no idea where to go, but I'll figure it out. Thank goodness for the Garmin.
