Last week was a crazy one for us. We decided that we would paint our house ourselves so that we could save a little money and move our kitchen from the front of the house to the back. If I had known how much work it was I might have seriously rethought that decision. We were very fortunate to have friends and family help. Jordan's dad was with him almost every night (sometimes until 1am), his mom watched Shelby so I could go and help during the day, his brother came up from Utah to fill nail holes (I think one of the worst jobs), a few friends from around here came to help, and our good friends from Logan came up for the weekend to finish up the painting. Needless to say by the end of it all, we were exhausted! Jordan slept for at least 11 hours straight yesterday and he could have slept more. He even slept through church!
Anyway, here is what our house looks like now on the outside.Here are some pictures of what the inside is looking like. I need to take pictures of the finished painted rooms.
Jordan hard at work. He said I needed to take this picture so people knew that his dad didn't do all the work.
This is the finished wall that Jordan was working on.
Here is our finished bedroom. I'm a little afraid of the color but we'll see what it looks like with carpet and furniture.
This is our good friend Matt, he and his wife came up this weekend to help us paint. Can you tell we got bored? This is Whitney's heart.
Here is Matt's drawing. That's a lot better than I could do. If you look at the wall just right you can still see the "monster." By the way, he's eating chocolate because this room looks like a big chocolate bar. The paint looked good enough to eat.
