Our first project was removing our weed trees. Here is our backyard before:
(I know they don't look like much, but they were seriously bigger than me. Like trees I tell you!)
And here is our pretty backyard now!
(well, "pretty" except for the massive dead spot of grass. We just can't get it to turn green!)
We decided we were too lazy to paint all of the house, so hired a painter to take care of the front room and kitchen/family room area.
The red almost looks good in this picture, but it really wasn't. Every single wall was red and it was a crappy paint job.
(yeah, the kitchen still needs a lot of work. Ugly yellow cupboards. Blech! We're hoping to remodel for Christmas).
Isn't it so warm and homey? And we love our new couches (Finally! After two weeks of sitting on the carpet).
And this is our storage room. We realized the other day that we had unpacked most of our stuff, but we don't have a single empty box. I still don't know where we got all this crap from!
So, I still need to do tons of decorating and get some color in this place! Jules--you planning on coming out here to help? You promised!
