This was a weekend of work. We had quite a bit of help though. Our friend Rubin came over and helped paint our main living room. His help was much appreciated!!! Also, Jay's parents and aunt and uncle came into town.
Here's a few pictures of the hard workers :)
Uncle Chaim vacuuming the doors before they get painted.
Rubin, Jay, and Dad Udey painting the living room.
There's always a moment to refuel!
Mom Udey and Aunt Laurie starting the trim or "cutting"
as we learned to call it in the family room.
Aunt Laurie and Dad Udey vacuuming the ceiling
in the living room to get rid of the last remnants
of fireplace sandblasting days.
The family room did an entire 180, maybe a few times. It went from a flowery wallpaper pattern on the top and eggshell on the bottom to this! This room looks beyond amazing, sharp, elegant, and exceeds the expectations I had for it. There's a little cleaning left to do but we have to wait a while before putting things back in place.
We will soon get things up on the walls when the paint is dry enough but we also got rid of the china hutch which opens up the living room quite a bit!
On a different note:
We also got the privilege of catching another chipmunk. As you can see, we have at least one more to catch. He had a visitor while he was trapped...
I found it quite entertaining to watch.
