Personal update for my peeps

I've been painting again, which leaves not a lot of time to blog or comment.

I'll post pictures soon, but I've done two dressers, one desk and the better part of four rooms.
Two items were mine, the rest were for my cousin and his family. They got an opportunity to become homeowners -- of a home in need of some gutting!

Good thing my dad is from a large family and there were lots of aunts, uncles, cousins, sisters and brothers to help.

Some of the rooms were fine, but others were too far gone. It was neat to see everyone come together and make stuff happen -- our own personal home makeover team. We got the 4 kids bedrooms mostly painted, including a brick wall (takes forever!). The living room walls were stripped of paneling and given a knock down plaster treatment, master bedroom painted, ceiling fan installed, plumbing fixed and added for future laundry room, bathroom gutted and ready for drywall, kitchen painted and some cabinets removed.

Rich was amazing, I was a proud wife this weekend -- there's no home project he can't do or figure out, plus he's not a hack.

They have another weekend to get things done and then they will be moving in -- wish them more luck.

Hope all you blogger buddies are having a dandy week as well. And to the moms, may the paper work angels come and fill out all your school forms and do all of your fund raising work.

God Bless.
