We have done some new stuff around here lately. See we have been in this his house for 3 1/2 years now. We haven't done much to the decor, since we didn't expect to be here very long. We painted our bedroom and Merci's bedroom before we moved in. We did redo the bathroom 1 1/2 years ago. Most of my friends know how ugly our house is, soooo outdated. We figured why waste our money, it is not ours and we don't plan on being here long anyway! Well...We are done. We will being doing a lot in the next few months. This past weekend we replaced the light fixture in Ethan's room. The old one was a pull string one, which hasn't been working for like a month. We could have bought a new pull string one, but my handy husband said NO. He decide to install a light switch and we bought a really cute pendant light. Josh wanted to do track lights but Ethan's room is very small. So we compromised!!
Yesterday, since it was raining AGAIN. Josh pulled all the molding off the living room windows and put in LOTS of insulation, previously there was NONE, just big gaping holes covered with a piece of wood and then the siding! No wonder it never stayed warm in there?? He sprayed lots of foam insulation and them covered that with Fiberglas insulation!! I can feel the difference! We have been in need of new mini blinds forever! They don't stay up when you put them up and one wouldn't even go up. So I decided out with the ugly pink mini blinds from the 80's and in with some new ones. We also got rid of the semi ugly curtains. They were definitely not my style but they matched the ugly FREE Lazy Boy couches and they added a little color. But BYE BYE!! I will be searching for some curtains and rod's to add some of ME to the room...Anyone have any they aren't using..That are cute?? So here are some pics.
Notice "Mauve" mini blinds!!
And gaping holes filled!
And notice UGLY pattern on walls that is
on every wall in the house!!
