New House: 1 Month Updates

Seriously? We've already owned our cute little home for an entire month?
I feel like we just closed on this place!
But if you take a peek inside, you'll see that we've been quite busy over the last few weeks doing everything we can to erase all of the yellow in the house. We started on the bedroom/bathroom side of the house and we've been working our way out from there.

In case you forgot what we started with, here's the original house tour.

- Added lights in the closet + switches outside the closets
- Prepped & painted closets
- Replaced all electrical outlets/light switches

- Hung bamboo shades
{Left to do: add a cable outlet}
A few other things have been completed in the house but those have been the biggest things in the last month. There's been some yard work done, some more electrical things throughout the house, and some other small things. Next things on our list?
Prep & paint the entry foyer & the kitchen.

...& find someone to get rid of the textured ceilings in our front living room and in our dining room. We know those two things are going to be hard and make a gigantic mess so we're hoping that we can find someone to do that part for us so that we can get in there and start painting.

Taking on the task of painting the entire house {ceilings, walls, trim, and doors} was a much, much, much more monumental task than I think either of us was anticipating. But y'all, that old yellow? It had to go. I would also 100% rather get as much of it done as possible with the least amount of furniture in the house... hence the attempt to get it all done before we move everything in.
I still think it's a great idea. But overwhelming and seemingly impossible? Yup. Absolutely.
