..the newest member of the Gates family! We love our new (much needed) truck :0) And heres a peek at what we've been up to ;0) I will show you the rest when we clean up the livingroom/warzone its done ;0) Even LuLu got in on the fun (note the paint on her little paw)...bad kitty! ;0) Thats all folks!
Isnt it amazing what i little paint, elbow grease and determination will do? ;0) We arent completely done with it though...we need to replace that abomination backsplash and put in some baseboards SO there will be more pictures... Let me know what you think so far!
Its official! We have been in our new home for a few weeks now and we couldnt be busier happier :0) First id like to say that being a homeowner is ALOT of work! I knew there would be alot to do but.....wow! The first thing we decided to tackle so to speak is the kitchen and i must say that its coming together quite nicely :0) We have stripped the wallpaper (which was a pain in the butt tedious task) and painted the ceiling, walls and cabinets (which look fabulous by the way ;0) I also took the liberty of ripping out all of the crusty/ugly baseboards! Here we are making a mess working ;0) One wall done(almost)...six more to go! ;0) Matt We decided to buy this really expensive handy paint sprayer ;0) It turned out to be worth it because it made the job alot easier. Here is matt in action! and here are some pictures of the warzone ;0) After we painted, we added some new fixtures and of course our new stainless steel refrigerator and dish washer! Matt and i were SO excited to get our very own fridge..its fabulous! All we need to do now is get rid of the backsplash what were they thinking and replace the baseboards and we should be good. Dont worry, I will post before and after pictures soon ;0) I cant wail til its done so i can start decorating it! SPEAKING of decorating i went antiquing/ thrifting today and made out like a bandit i tell you! Here are my finds! First i found this cool antique coffee table that just needs a new coat of paint for just $35..THEN i found my new favorite thrift store! Do you see all of the things on my new coffee table and that super awesome antique mirror?! You will be so jealous amazed at how much i spent for it....wait for it..... a whopping $2.98! Isnt that fabulous?! I think the crazy nice lady at the thrift store is my new best friend! :0) Thats all folks! ♥
