We finally took possession of our new house yesterday after the seller's 10-day lease ended.... and after she spent three additional hours (of our time) trying to get a Murphy bed out of the front bedroom. Apparently Murphy bed moving is tricky stuff because the handyman who tried to get it out on Sunday went to the emergency room after it hit him in the head (and I did see the blood). Then yesterday, a one hour job turned into three after the seller's moving people showed up with a small car (?!) to move it to her new house.
Anyways, we're in the house, but already behind on moving! Before we can even get into the space, there is a lot of painting that needs to be done. While I do like the blue colors that are on some of the walls, they just have too many scuffs and discolorations to keep.
There is also a whoooole lot of yellowed trim to take care of as well.
Before I head back to the house, I'll go ahead and share the very first space I went to after getting the keys...
Look closely and you'll see the grossest closet ever...
Yuck. Stay tuned for those afters and the new paint colors (which I haven't exactly picked out yet).
