Time for a Change!

Mickey and I have lived in our home for nearly 10 years now, and it is time for a change. Oh, not that we haven't made a few changes since we've been here. We painted a few times (okay, NUMEROUS times) and we have added items to the walls, and we've added furniture, but we have decided it is time for a semi-major change!




We bought a new couch and loveseat (the solid is the furniture, the paisley will be pillows) over the weekend, and some paint for the livingroom... and we are going to install wood flooring as well. Actually, we wanted wood flooring when we moved in but alas, carpet was cheaper, so we went that route.

Think that it will be fun to make a few changes... it always makes the place seem brand new once again. Just not looking forward to the process... tearing out carpet, removing baseboards... the mess this will create... but you have to have a mess in order to have a finished project!

Kind of like our lives... we are constantly reminded that we have areas where a fresh coat of paint might make a difference, but we hate the mess and the cost that comes about when we make a change, so most of the time, we opt to NOT remodel... but the end result... well worth the time and effort!

So if you have some free time... give me a call... I think I can set you up with some weekend work!

I would say I'd help paint.. but Ricky goes right behind & tells everyone "Dont let her get a paint brush in her hands"... sigh...

I love changing things! Especially the decor. I guess I get bored easy :-) We've been working on our home for over 3 years now...and still haven't even touched the upstairs yet! Terry

I happen to LOVE painting! And I've learned some faux techniques too...
