Friday I was able to spend a large chunk of the day at the house painting. Saturday we took a break from decorating our new home with colour, to enjoy a lovely Easter lunch/dinner with family from my side and one of our great friends (whose been helping with the house). It was so great to take it easy and enjoy our deck and the sunshine, as it was a beautiful day, and to show off our home to some of the people we love most in the world. Couldn't have turned out better, and while half the time I was distracted trying to be the perfect hostess for the first time in our little abode, I had a blast. Especially at the park on the slides with my baby, having the time of her life.
Sunday was back to work, and, with the help of my great girl friend Jess, I was able to do an immense amount of work in very little time. Including most of our little girl's room and the dining room. Monday, my husband had work off and went about doing the hard to reach areas (the giant entryway, needed extended ladder). Our friends arrived after work to help some more, they are too good to us. Managed quite a bit in that time, finishing off our babe's room and most of the dining room. Finishing the accent wall in the living room.
Tuesday night the hubby went back over, with a couple of our friends, and managed a coat in the living room, one coat left for the dining room ceiling, and one coat of green in the master bedroom. Last night they went over to finish it off, cannot believe how efficient and amazing they have been. Could not have done this without my husband's dedication and our friend's support. I will do before and after photos in a post (when all design changes have also been put in place, like light fixture replacements, wall hangings, etc.) So might be a couple weeks before I can post it.
