House Update – Pictures and Recent Activities
So – it’s been a while since I’ve been able to post. We’ve spent much of the last couple of weeks finishing with installing the crown moulding, painting, and doing cleanup and a little unpacking in preparation for Mr. Man’s Grandparent’s Visit over this last weekend. Between all that going on, there just hasn’t been time for much else, like blogging (or even email). However, we did get a ton of things around the house done, and it is looking just incredible, if I do say so myself. We still have a lot of unpacking to do – and the cabinet trim and backsplash need to be addressed at some point, but it’s really starting to feel more and more like home.
Mr. Man did all the cuts for the crown moulding himself, and the two of us installed and painted it. I was a little leery of it at first, just because I tend to favor less ornate decorations, but once it was installed, I got to say that I’m thrilled with it. It was a hell of a lot of work, but it’s really paid off – Mr. Man and I both will just get these goofy grins every so often when we look up at it and see how beautiful it is. I especially like it on the accent wall and in the entry – since it really frames in the dark colors and makes it pop.
I’ll be glad to get life back to some semblance of normal here for a little while though – the crazy busy schedule was just not doing it for me, and I missed posting.
(For the record, the wall paint colors are all Benjamin Moore Aura Line – the only paint brand I think I will ever, ever buy again. We used:
Kitchen: Ash Blue
Living Room: Greenbrier Beige
Accent Wall: Naples Blue
Entry Way: Cranberry Cocktail
Hall: Sandy White
