Finished!

Pssst!  Guess what!  We moved in to our new house!  Finally!  But before I get to all that, I wanted to share what we saw when we paid one last visit to the new house before actually moving in just a day later (sorry I didn’t get a better pics–we were pretty pressed for time and our regular camera it out of commission!).

(Recall that until this was done the other day our living room looked like this.)

That’s right!  No more acoustical tile!  No 60s wallpaper!  And no more paneling!  Just lots of new drywall just waiting to be painted.  Plus, since the work was complete our contractor had the entire place cleaned top to bottom so everything, especially the newly re-finished floors was gleaming.  

Both rooms turned out great.  Sydney’s room looks so fresh and bright and clean.  I can’t wait to get some pictures up.

Here’s a sneak peek at the kitchen too:

For the first time DH and I were truly thrilled to be at our almost home.  Of course, the next day the moving truck showed up and out came all the boxes and chaos, but I’ll get to all that soon.  For now, let’s just enjoy the calm before the storm.  DH picked up some sunflowers for me that day and we set them in a beer glass on the mantle next to the mirror we had brought over from the condo:

Ahhhh.  So nice.

Cheers,
