Jamie found this little guy burried in the front yard while he was planting some rosemary yesterday. Turns out that he is Saint Joseph the provider. As a Catholic boy, I knew that Joseph was the patron saint of fathers and the dead. But I had no idea that he was also called upon to help people sell thier houses by being burried upside-down amongst crepe myrtles. I have saints and crosses in almost every room, so it is kind of comforting to know that the previous owner and I have even more in common.
Well they are here putting Can Lights in the living room as we speak. I am sure this is going to go smoothly.
James will post pictures hopefully tomorrow.
Ok, everything from both households has been moved to the garage for staging and editing. There is a small path through the stacks of boxes and limited access to the washer/dryer. We keep making jokes about the show “Hoarders” filming an episode here.
Jamie spent 2 days scraping the popcorn off the master bedroom ceiling, he is still coughing. Thankfully, that was the biggest room with popcorn ceilings; the hallway and master bath are both pretty small. After some debate, we opted not to put he bed under the window as I had originally planned, it just didn’t “look” right. It would have blocked too much natural light. Limited closet space equals pegrack of jackets on the wall…….no biggie, we spend more money on clothes than art anyhoo. The black sisal rug grounds the room, keeps it dark, moody and masculine. Still waiting on the chrome sawhorse desk for the side of the bed, and pretty sure that I will add crown moulding and can lights in the next few weeks.
Well today is James’s moving day….pray all goes well. House is coming along. I will post some pictures tonight.
Well today was a good day…We got 3 new blinds hung. James is coming along in the painting and I scrapped the popcorn off the ceiling. My mom came and saw the house and she loved it. I am so ready to move in. It’s starting to feel like home. More to come!
This is the first day of painting the living room. The fireplace had some sort of olive/off-white paint on just the front of the bricks…..so we thought we’d try this caviar black. Jamie spent the entire day priming then painting over it . I painted the ceiling flat white ( the previous owner had painted it gloss…I can’t for the life of me imagine why ) We picked a chocolatey brown for the rest of the walls in the house ….haven’t finished the edges yet , but hopefully tomorrow TXU will remember to turn the power on and we can paint at night.
Well it was day 1 of working on the house….I spent all day painting the fireplace BLACK….it’s so pretty. James painted the ceilings and started working on the living room. It’s going to be perfect. We are so excited. Pictures coming soon.
