Weeds, Paintin, and Electrical. OH MY!
Here's the latest:
. Adam and his dad are busy busy working on the upstairs electrical. After demolition, Joe noticed that there was some badly wired electrical and even a fire hazard. Can you believe an electrician used to live in our house? Eeks!
. Here are some pictures of Adam and his Dad working on electrical. His Dad cut a hole in the hallway ceiling to reposition our electical parts so that when we drywall the bath, and need to do electrical work, we'll have access to all the electrical goodies.
. The kitchen is painted! Hooray! It is a light buttery yellow color. Subtle... I wasn't sure about it at first, but it is growing on me. Anything is better than the old wallpaper! I realized my major issue with the kitchen is the cabinets and backsplash, and since we don't have a bajillion dollars right now to replace that stuff, I must deal.
. Adam did the painting and he did an EXCELLENT job!
. I helped. It was messy.
. Next step in the kitchen will be to try and recover the free kitchen chairs that the previous owners left. They look goofy, but they are comfortable, so we're gonna try to save them with new fabric. Maybe... to be continued.
. Hey all you gardeners out there: is this tall thing a weed? I am not sure... I started weeding this weekend, pulling out stuff that didn't look like it belonged, and wasn't sure about this thing... hmmmm.
. And, for your enjoyment, some new flowers that bloomed on the side of our house :)
. Happy Birthday Mom!
