Home Sweet Home

Okay, well maybe not quite home yet...but as of March 3rd it will be!! We were able to get into our new apartment on Saturday. Because of the yucky snow and bad weather we decided not to try to move my stuff out of storage. We are able to paint the walls if we paint them back to the original color. After living in rentals for the last 7 years, I am ready for color. We didn't want to invest too much into it, but we did paint one wall in our guest bedroom/office and will paint our room as well. We ran out of time on Saturday but we made some progress none the less. I didn't take very many pictures, but I did capture a few.

This is our guest room/office. I didn't manage to get a before and after picture of it...but the taped wall ended up being an olive green color. I would have loved to do the whole room, but we don't want to have to do too much painting when we move out.

This is what will be the master "suite". It's not really a suite because the bathroom is across the hall, but we do have two closets. One, walk-in for clothes and such, and then one that also houses our washer and dryer, which was delivered Saturday as well. (Thanks Mom and Dad York!)

This is still in the master bedroom. We chose a milky chocolate color. We called it all kinds of things...latte, mocha, milk chocolate, etc. George and I took turns doing the trim work verses doing the roller, but as it turned out...I like trimming and he likes rolling.

We ran out of time the finish it, but here are two of the walls in our room we were able to complete. We're very excited with how it is turning out. Can't wait to get our furniture and really make it home.

Disclaimer...I didn't stand around the whole time and take pictures. I did my fair share...well, I did some work too.

Obviously, you painted from daylight to dark! I'm wondering about your choices of words for your color -- were you wishing for a hot cuppa? Congratulations as you prepare your first 'together' home. Love you both!
