House Pictures!

Okay, so I'm finally going to download some pictures for you. Look back a few posts to see the before pictures. I'm not going to take time to post them again. The progress made is amazing!! I can walk into my house and smile instead of cry now.

A huge thank you goes out to Mom and Dad. They worked so hard and taught me so many things. Their coming helped take away that overwhelming feeling of being inadequate in owning a home. I'm so thankful for the parents God has blessed me with and I can't even tell you how much I love them...not just because they helped with the house. They are just incredible all the way around.

So without further are the pictures.

Sorry it's dark, but notice the new lighting. The other side of the family room also has the new lights. Guess I should have turned them on for the picture.

Here's the kitchen. New lights in here too as well as the paint. I went with orange...who would have guessed? The next picture lets you see the color a little better.

Haven't painted the living room yet, but all the boxes are gone and Mom labored away on that awful border for several days this past week. It was a huge task and she got it all off. Now it just needs to be painted and it will be done. Dad replaced the yucky lights in here too with the ceiling fan.

Here's my bedroom. It's a small room, but I really like how it turned out. The walls are purple and the ceiling is light gray. The shades were originally $40 at Lowe's but we found them on sale for $9 and I got 10% off as well! Yippee! They are too big for the windows, but that's where Dad came in really handy. Notice the new ceiling fan in this room too.

This last picture is the spare room. The walls are gray and the ceiling is a lighter gray. I got the same shades for this room.

So there you have it! Pictures of the progress.

Erin, I am so, so, so happy that you all were able to get so much done! It is overwhelming & upsetting to feel like you have to do it all yourself. I would have been dead in the water without Mike's help. I think you guys are WAY speedier than we are at getting things done - lol!
Love it, love it, love it!
