back at it

We're back to work on the house again! It's been a few weeks where we haven't had time to do anything, so it feels good to see things moving along again.

Upstairs, baseboards are being installed in the two bedrooms, office and hallway. Cam has been at it the last two nights and it's going surprisingly fast.

Once they're in we'll prep them for priming and painting. We'll be painting the window trim too that was installed months ago. A coat of glossy white paint on all this woodwork will really make these rooms look finished.

You can see the new reproduction wall registers we got too. The original style I wanted was backordered forever, so I got impatient and went with these instead. We couldn't start installing trim without them so waiting much longer wasn't ideal.

Hopefully we'll be pulling out paint brushes by the weekend! Then once we repaint some of the walls we can move things back up here and even do a little decorating! I've got a few things ready for the kid's rooms that I'll show you once we're closer to that stage. This rug gives you an idea of the color going into Serena's room (sorry Facebook friends who saw this already).

Thankfully both kids did great sleeping in pack n plays in the basement while a saw, air compressor and a nail gun were going through the evenings. Guess they just get used to the kind of chaos this house is sometimes in!

Ps sorry for all the instagram pics, but my mouse on my computer decided not to work today, so I had to resort to my tablet. But speaking of instagram, you can follow me @jmmccalley if you wish. I can promise it's not a glamourous life I live, but you might get a few updates on the house/decor projects that don't make it to a blog post!
