As many of you know we got into our new "nest" last Sunday. This week has been a whirlwind of painting for Terry and I. We start early in the morning and stay until early evening sanding, painting etc.
My muscles are screaming and Advil has become my new best friend! I have found muscles I did not know I had!
We are trying to get as much of the painting and sanding and messy stuff done before next Tuesday when the movers come to unpack our life that is stored in the pod right now. I just see all the dust and debris all over and am glad we are getting a lot of this done before my furniture and things are put into place.
I thought I would show you a few of the changes starting. The cell camera is the only picture taker I have right now so bear with the pictures. I hope to find my good camera when we get things unpacked next week.

|I chose the color snowdrift. It is a basic white with a hint of gray. It should look nice with all my chippy white decor.|
|Before Kitchen. Lots of work being done in this room.|
|The stair case is going to have a complete re do too! Carpet is coming off and new stairs with a darker stain to match the floors complimented with some white spindles etc.|
|The balusters will be stained in a darker color to match the floors and the spindles and bases will be white. The top stair treads will be done in the darker stain.|
|Inspiration off pinterest. I cannot wait to achieve this look on my stairs.|
We are trying with all our might to get as much done to this place before the movers come on Tuesday with all our furniture. This week is going by so fast with all the painting and changes we have to do. Some of the changes in the bathrooms etc. will probably not get done until after we have officially moved in next week. There is only so many hours in a day that Terry and I can get things done. Once one thing is checked off the list there are several other things still to be completed.
Have a great rest of this week. Hope to have some nice reveal pictures soon.
