scenes from the weekend

G spent most of the weekend removing each and everything that was nailed, screwed, or otherwise attached to the house. including but not limited to... blinds, door knobs, lights, shelves, switch plates... 

i painted. it took forever, but it didn't seem like i had much to show for my efforts. this scene would only be better if the cup said DUTCH BROTHERS on it

master bedroom... moldings done and almost everything off the walls

taking up the tack strips from the carpet

still painting moldings... this was my last bedroom...i was pretty pumped. 

where are the appliances?

in the living/dining big deal.

last to come out was the dishwasher  (i have no idea why this is underlined!)

round two of testing paint colors. round one resulted in 1 out of 5 being something we like

tearing up the entryway linoleum...not easy. G has some new methods to try out today though!

wish us luck...

by wednesday we need all the bedrooms primed and painted so the carpet can be installed.

by sunday we need to have the laminate down and the moldings/doors painted in the rest of the house. we'd like to have all the walls painted too, but that one might be stretching it. did i mention a week from tomorrow G leaves for ACSM and i start school? its going to be insane.
