Painting - Check!

Friday night after work, I went up to join John at the house. He had left work early to meet the Comcast installer (no show.. surprise surprise- we officially hate Comcast.. I wish we had another choice) and put up the first coat of the ceiling paint. It was a HUGE difference! When I got there, he did the second coat and I did the trim. We worked till 11 pm to get it done because... Saturday was painting day!!

The ceiling after some paint.. check out that color difference! The ceiling used to be the same color as the walls.. which I think used to be white. Gross.

Monday I painted the closets. (sorry no pictures of the inside of the closets- they are very exciting).

The only painting that is left is all of the trim. And I mean All. Of. It. All the windows, doors, baseboards/shoe moulding, crown moulding in the bedrooms- everything. Yay.. We are going to tackle that slowly- room by room on the weekends.

Oh... did I mention why we worked so hard to get this done this weekend? The guys are coming today to refinish the wood floors! Today they will be sanding and then sanding the floors. Tomorrow and Thursday they will be applying the 2 coats of polyurethane and then it will be set for us to move in on Saturday!
