I have spent the last few days desperately trying to fix up my house, that for some reason feels like more of a fixer upper than I thought.
I knew this house needed work.
The saving grace is that it was all cosmetic.
Nothing major, just pulling out some carpet, splashing some paint on the walls, putting in some laminate, and changing a few fixtures.
The problem is, all this non-drastic work. Is a ton of work!!!
Right now I am trying to focus on the rooms that Linc and I will be living in the most. I move in on Monday, so my thought is that we can live in these rooms and work on the others as we live there. Actually that was Isaac’s idea and I stole it and now call it my own because it was pretty smart.
So here is where we are at in three days.
Tack strips under carpet, out.
Kitchen, painted and just about done. We are still going to put in a backsplash that was on sale at Costco but that is not high priority.
Living room, mudded, painted, and floors cleaned.
The next room two high priority rooms for this weekend are the master (Linc and I can both sleep in there) and the bathroom.
The tub needs caulked, the room painted, and new fixtures need to be put up.
The master needs to be painted and the floors need to be stripped and cleaned.
Then move in day!!!
I will keep you posted on the work, I plan on packing at the old house today and then painting a room today.
Here are a few pictures of our progress. (I wish I would have taken some befores with the nasty dirty carpet.
