Awe, guys – thank you for the sweet, supportive, hilarious comments and emails after yesterday’s post. So grateful for this community. Truly. Thank you!
Unfortunately, I can’t say today was much better so let’s just go ahead and forget about Wednesday and focus on Tuesday. On Monday, the flooring guys pulled away – on Tuesday my painter pulled in. *all the heart eyes* I can not wait to see / share this transformation.
He started by removing the random hanging items and nails from the exterior, then power washed the entire house. I have to admit, even though I wasn’t handling the power washer – it was therapeutic to watch.
Look at this after…
Why did I ever wait this long?
Wish I didn’t have work to handle on Tuesday or I’d have yanked the nozzle out of his hands to disappear / escape for a few hours.
He worked his way around the house hitting all the gutters, trim, windows and more…
He also removed the 2 lattice from the front…
Serious eye sores all these years. So great to have them outta here.
I can barely contain myself with the idea of seeing this house in a fresh coat of paint. It’s going to be incredible. And there will be tears.
Did I already say that? Pretty sure I did. Pretty sure I’ve turned into a cry baby…but can you blame me?
Anyway, huge impact and wow factor for sure…
You’re probably wondering which paint color I chose. After serious thought and research, I narrowed down the selections to…

This one is my go-to as seen in the laundry room I completed earlier this year. It’s one of my favorites!

I settled on White Dove. Which by the way looks just as stunning inside…

Can. Not. Wait.
And the front door is going to be a stunner too! I’ll share that color with you soon….eeeek!
IN OTHER NEWS
On a positive note, one of my dearest friends recently built the most unique, incredible home in the area. She moved this week and has new custom furniture arriving at the new place. She offered to send over some of her gently used furnishings for both staging and keeping. Today I received 2 couches for the living room, 2 bedside tables and a master bed that is gorgeous…seriously…I feel like a woman again.
Well, hopefully I’ll feel that way soon.
Remember when I said “if it’s not one thing, it’s something else”?. That theme continued today while assembling the bed and realized the haulers delivered the bed MINUS the hardware to assemble it. I’m currently sleeping on my mattress on the floor next to this beautiful upholstered bed.
What can I say? Close enough.
Anyway, it’s pretty and beautiful and will work well in our new home, I’m sure. Looks great here in this room and will show well when buyers walk through.
Out with the old energy…
Sneak peek of the new!…
Will look nice for staging when complete.
A few people asked about the bed this evening on IG. The bed is from Restoration Hardware. Looks similar to this one but I don’t have the exact match – been a few years since they carried it.
Look forward to sharing another painting update tomorrow! Hope you’ve been having a great week – getting closer to the weekend!
