- Cleaning (duh, gross).
- Painting the entire house, including ceilings.
- Replacing the flooring through the entire house.
- Replacing the base boards through the entire house.
- Sob Uncontrollably at the sight of all our money going away.
Luckily for us (mostly our wallets), Monkey (Chris) worked in flooring for like 22 years sooooo we're only having to pay for the new flooring supplies and not extra for the actual installation. We haven't found the flooring we want yet, but we're not done painting, so there's still time. Monkey is hoping to find something this week so we can order it and have it to the house since we're almost done with the paint.
For the paint colors, we chose:
- Icy Waterfall - Living/Kitchen/Dining Rooms (open floor plan)
- Teal Zeal - Craft Room
- Sea Breeze Teal - 2nd Bathroom (located in craft room)
- Prom Dress Blue - Bedroom (Haunted Mansion Themed)
- Freshen Up Lime OR Bali Bamboo - Main Bathroom (Creature themed)
Monkey has not yet selected a paint color for the Bot-Cave either, he's running out of time though, so he's going to have to pick something soon! He's been pretty much painting everything himself because his mom and I suck at cutting in and he was sick of having to go back in and fix our mistakes on the ceiling - oops?! While he's been painting, I've been working to clean out the cabinets, lighting fixtures, ceiling fans, and doors.
I've also ordered new fabric shower curtains for our bathrooms plus some new art for the house, one new piece by Misfit Menagerie for my Craft Room and some canvas prints of the Stretching Room Portraits for our bedroom.
Here's a couple of pics of the freshly painted walls:
Anyhoo, I will update some more later this week once we have finished painting everything and hopefully have the flooring picked out.
In the meantime, I will share the shower curtains we ordered for the bathrooms:
This one is for my bathroom and is called "Creatures of the Night" by Alyssa De Asis. It can be found here.
I absolutely LOVE this artwork and may end up ordering a throw pillow or something else with the design because it's so bright and colorful while still being dark and a little spooky with the insects in there.
This one is for the main bathroom and is artwork from a vintage movie poster, you can find this one here.
This was actually our 2nd choice, the one I originally ordered was printed sideways, Society6 said the artwork was uploaded at the wrong dimensions so they gave me store credit + free shipping on my next order.
