Whew. What a weekend. I can pretty much sum it up in one word: painting.
We got it done. 2 coats of paint on every wall in the upstairs.
We couldn’t have done it without all the help we had. On Saturday, Scott’s parent’s – Way and Lee came. Lee helped at the house. Way watched Luke and brought sloppy joe’s for lunch. Scott’s brother Adam helped. And 2 of Scott’s friends from work – Matt and Zak were there too. On Sunday, my parent’s came down. Mom watched Luke and made hot beefs for lunch. Dad helped paint. Matt and Zak came over for day #2, as did Lee. And another friend of ours, Matt came over in the afternoon.
We knew at some point we would be painting the upstairs, but didn’t realize it was going to be the past weekend, until Monday night last week. So, it was a pretty quick decision making to figure out all the colors, and with the short time frame, we didn’t even have the chance to test out colors on the walls to make sure we liked them. We totally lucked out though, because we LOVE all of our colors!

Things got a bit crazy when we had to paint the area over the stairs.. . thankfully there were no trips to the ER this weekend!
The master bedroom. . .
Mom was super nice and brought me Caribou on Sunday morning.
And she completed the survey so I can get $1 off my next coffee – how sweet is that?
The finished product of the kitchen/living room area.
And now they can start to put in the flooring!! Wood floors in the kitchen/dining room and hallway. Carpet in the bedrooms. Tile in the mud room and bathrooms.
I am still SO tired – what a long weekend. Looking forward to being in Maui next week!!
So, what were you up to this weekend? Hopefully something way more exciting than my life!
