Just for fun

Well, I thought ya'll would like to take a look and see what ALL THE WHINING has been about! The house is completely done so I figured I'd better share some pictures so you could see. And if you want to buy it, I'll make you a good deal! =) hee hee!! It just went into the MLS today, So I'm hoping to get some lookers this weekend! It's exciting! I can't wait to see if this is what God wants us to do or not. I'm ok either way. And you'd better look fast because people are seriously beating down the door to buy this house!! (ok...maybe not) And ya'll will have to forgive me because I am not the best photographer!

Master Bath Before (OH MY WORD, this picture does not do it justice!! I was crying it was so ugly!! BTW, it's not a good idea to get highlights done and then paint tile and sneeze.....you might hit your head on the wall and then have to get your hair cut to get it out....you just might.)

And After:




Ok, so that's it! I've been twiddling my thumbs all day because there is just nothing else to be done!! What an amazing thought! I had a realtor ask me yesterday if we'd do it again (fix and sell) and I took a deep breath and said, "NO." Not with three girly's anyway. It's been fun, it's been a huge headache, and now it's time to bid farewell.......hopefully! There have been MANY "Oh my word's"(good and bad) said, Many cuts, Many trips to Home Depot, Many tiny fingers with paint on them and many, many, many rubbing our heads going, "What are we doin?"

So, if it sells, AWESOME, if not we'll stay put a bit longer. I'll be sure to keep you updated, just thought you'd like to see the finished product!! Never thought I'd be able to post this post!! =)

You did a great job!
It is a really cute house...and cute is not a bad word.
After all that work I wouldn't want to leave.
If it had some land....might have put in a bid.
But Keith would like to have some land and I would like to be able to look out my windows in the mountains.
We shall see....whatever God wants.

All the makeovers are beautiful! Wanna come to my house :) We just painted the boys room and Kennedy's nursery this weekend. Feels weird to have a girly nursery in this house :)

Great Job! Do you like the hardwood better then carpet in the bedrooms. It looks nice. Just wondering? Mom needs Kris to put a fan up when he has time.
