T-????

Whew, getting all sorts of busy around here!! I've got a painter, handyman, and about to hire a tree removal person and landscaper/yard person! So hope this sells this place fast :)

This pile o'wood is now gone and is replaced with old, rotten porch posts and banisters...more on that another day..

Give me a minute to say good bye to my sage green walls...
What's left of the sage green :(

Ok, I'm back!  As you can see, coat 1 of antique white....boring, but necessary to brighten up and help to sell.  The ceilings are looking awesome too! Bright white semi-gloss paint is making them very perky!!
Goodby sage green walls!

So wished the movers were coming soon...would be great to get rid of some boxes I keep tripping over ;)

very nice walls now!
Dining room looks great!  So hoping we don't have to have the wallpaper below the chair rail removed...

Remember this?? Well my little solution turned out into what you see below!
Sigh...

It's all kinds of awesome!! Not too expensive I'm told (handyman will send me the bill I know ;), but again, should help sell...unless they don't like black...eep!
Love the backsplash...
I think the corner design really makes it interesting...


New backsplash
Coffee station!  In this room, I really wanted a creamy beige, light brown to match the counter tops...but, the boring antique white really pops in there...besides, I'm not painting to my specs!  Heck I'm not painting at all.  Since my surgery, any prolonged overhead work isn't easy to do, the packing...waiting to pack, etc.. is about all I can handle right now...

That is until 10 days from now....what's happening then??  Well, after 21 years of loyal service I will be leaving my job. My security in earning a living and heck in doing what I know. This gives me 2 weeks to get the house on the market and let A finish school.  ..Luckily I've been hoarding saving my leave so I will still get paid until mid July.  But, don't cry for me ;)  I'm so looking forward to starting over and seeing what the future holds...scary...most definately, exciting....very... 


T-30 so days and Arizona bound!!

I LOVE that backsplash.

You are SO smart to paint those walls boring white. My brother and SIL just sold their house and had to really discount it b/c it wasn't moving and they were leaving. I really think the paint scheme and 80s teal backsplash they had installed when they first moved in was a reason.

So very pretty! I love the black/white. Enjoy this time (though it's daunting and you're so busy)!!

It's looking really good! Love the kitchen. The black molding is sexay. ;)

I've been behind on blogs but yes, I would like to steal that potholder. I might just kidnap you too so I can keep you here in NC. ;)

It all looks so great! You are all kinds of busy! Arizona is a lot closer to Hawaii, lol.

I know I'm months and months and months behind, but I'm here! And catching up! I'm so glad to see that you found a new home. Can't wait to get all caught up! :)
