Progress on house #2

Yesterday & today we spent up at George's house painting.

A bit of an explanation is in order, perhaps...
George has property that he lived in before we got together. It includes his parent's house  (his Mom died in 2005, and his Father died in 2007), and a house trailer, all on 2 acres on the Susquehanna River. It really is nice property.



We have decided to move into the house, to save some money while my house is on the market. While we're living there, we can work on updating it a bit to get it into a nicer condition to sell.

So...we painted the master bedroom yesterday and the 'middle' bedroom today. We stopped and ordered new carpet for both of those rooms. We used a Lowe's gift card from George's daughter to buy some wire shelving, a new shower door, and a new front screen door. We also picked up some inexpensive window treatments.

I had every intention of taking pictures of the progress, but once we got started, neither one of us took the time to do that! We were just happy to get both rooms painted :-)

Next weekend we plan on putting up the shelving, window shades, doors, and, oh yeah,  a new and improved mailbox. I think that the upgrades will go a long way to marketing the house in the spring!

  3. Good job! I agree thats a lot of painting to do in one weekend! I'm so very much slower! I painted one wall today. First coat only and then ran out of paint. But i also did the wash and worked on some sculpture work, grocery shopped and cooked a yummy dinner. (Guess one wall was enough!)

  7. LOL!! Saggy dragons :) :) And you know, it's SO true. But I wonder if you get one when you're 85, if it will look fresh the rest of your life. Hmmmm....
