What a weekend around our household! Hokey Doodle!!!! Saturday morning started with three gallons of paint and a room 18x22 to get started on. The Hubs was going to help paint but after some discussion his needs were better off building the new landing and new stairs so that we could eventually start using the garage door entrance. Needless to say we had our work cut out for us. Six sraight hours of painting and building, I did finish my end of the chores but we decided the stairs needed to be stronger and therefore a trip to the Depot to return stair risers and new "metal" risers were in order. I love going to Home Depot....I could spend hours wondering around there but not so much the Hubs! Get in and get out! Yup that's his motto! Not I though........Oh the things you can see and do, and things to think you can do..............yes I am my father's daughter.......but we were in and out a few hundred dollars later. Then we treated ourselves to a quiet dinner and some relaxation to go over our accomplishments of the day and to contemplate what else needed to be done. But it sure looks nice in there now. Let me tell you! Clean! Now only to keep it like that. I don't plan on living in here but at least now it's brighter and cleaner looking. So here is a before in its ugliness......minus all the junk...........
