Two Month Update

I can’t believe it’s already been 2 months since we moved into our new home! Time sure flies when you don’t have a spare minute. This past months has been a whirlwind of home updates road trips and lots of potty training our sweet pup.

  • This month we finally finished painting the in in I hope we never have to paint another wall ever again(or at least in the next few years). We painted 2 coats of Behr’s French Silver to the downstairs hallway, the upstairs hallway and I even braved a 20 ft ladder to paint the staircase.
Before                                                               After 

  • We had an electrician put in a new outlet inside a cabinet for a microwave and had him install the OTR Microwave where a range used to be. We're slowly switching all the appliances from white to stainless.
    • Samsung OTR Microwave/Convection Oven - $179 (On clearance at HhGregg)
    • Electrician (New Outlet and Installation) - $305

  • On a whim, I bought a wood dining table from Craigslist which we re-finished this weekend. (More on this later this week).

  • We raised the curtains in our dining room and office.

  • Added a new light fixture to the downstairs half-bath.

We have a couple of cool projects and big buys before the end of May, trying to get the house in tip-top shape before my parents's visit and our housewarming party.
