Tax money came in so now we are remodeling the house. This is going to keep me very busy for a while. I plan to update as I go.
So far we have been moving everything out of the living room area and ripping out the carpet. It's going pretty well but still have a little work to get done. Thankfully, the subflooring looks great so far. I'm hoping the rest looks as good when we remove the carpet there.
Picking new flooring has been the hardest part of the remodel. We have no clue what we are doing, honestly. I'm hoping we can find a deal and manage to get them done quickly ourselves. I have a feeling it will be more stress than I am wishing for but well worth it once it's done.
First thing first: I'm going to paint. I've picked a great blue toned color for the living room, a teal for my kitchen cabinets and a deep gold for the kitchen walls. These colors should blend well together and look great for our semi open floor plan. I have also decided that since we don't need as much room for the living room furniture as we do for the classroom stuff, we will be switching the sides these rooms are currently located in. So the living room will go into the back of the room and the classroom/dining area, in the front of the room. This will also allow more light for the kids to do work and such during school time since the front is often brighter than the back of the room.
This remodel has been long awaited and I am so excited to get started. You probably won't be seeing a lot of me for the next few weeks though, since I will be doing the painting by myself. Good thing I really love to paint, though I'm sure I'll be tired of it by the time I'm done with all of these projects!
We also have an upcoming trip for the little man in March. He has a in-hospital EEG scheduled right in the middle of all this chaos! Please keep him and us in prayers while we go through testing with him. It's a lot to manage.
Thanks all and God bless!
