Now, of course we've anticipated this; we've saved moolah to do what's neccessary to make it look decent. And I can't believe it, but it's time to starting choosing the neccessary items for our extreme makeover, home edition. I apologize if ya hate house redecorating shtuff, 'cause I sure do love me a good re-decor.
First off, the paint. Relatively, an extremely cheap and well worthwhile cause.
I'm a neutral shade, warm taupe color kind of gal, obviously. The entire house will be painted (something like) this color. 'Cept maybe the kid's room. We'll see. Oh, and not the ceilings. Those'll be white. (not looking forward to painting the ceilings)
Second, or B., Jeff and I have a disagreement about flooring. If I had my way the entire house would be in hardwood.
Oh la la. Brazilian walnut (no this wood is not in my budget but I can dream).
Jeff prefers carpet. How about we compromise and the living/family/dining/kitchen be hardwood and the bedrooms carpet? Huh, huh? Now listen seriously:
-Carpet requires: price of carpet, carpet padding, & installation
-Hardwood: hardwood. Jeff installs (with guidance from my dad).
If you get your hardwood for a steal (and you can), you're saving $.
Alright that's plenty. For now. Sorry if you wanted to bang your head against your computer desk in boredom.
