T minus 7 and counting......that's the estimate I give for our days before move in (DBMI, if you will!)
We've certainly had mixed responses during this whole process of remodeling an old, tiny shack instead of building a new house. Let me see, some examples......
"I think you two are going to start something here in Malakoff!"
"I love it!"
and my personal favorite....
"You guys are dumb!" (yes, we have good, supportive friends!)
Nonetheless, I can't tell you how excited I am to be moving in within the next week. My in-laws are amazingly wonderful, generous, supportive people, but it is time for the Ferrell family of four to be back on their own. I've also been more and more and more sure that waiting, and not building just yet was the right thing to do. One day......one day.... we'll build our house. When we're ready.
So here we go!
New sink, faucet, and looky at the light fixture!
Can you tell how cute I think it is?
New bathroom. I don't have a "before" pic, but it was completely gutted....COMPLETELY!
Dining room...painted, finally! Hardwood floors are going in as we speak...
I still have to show you the remodel we did on our fireplace. If you read The Lettered Cottage, I stole her idea (again!) and completely copied what she did with her fireplace. Pictures soon to come of that.......
Have a wonderful day all!
