When I first walked into this home back in August, I thought to myself that if I got this house, I couldn't wait to rip off the valance over the sliding glass door, and do something to that horrid little fireplace. It's such an awkward setup - the fireplace in the corner, and with it being all dark and brick, it was just a black hole! So today, I got out the leftover tan paint from the walls (it was freshly painted - not my first choice of color, but it will do for now), and painted the fireplace. Tedious work - but what a difference!
Well, in other news, it looks like we won't have the bathroom finished before we move in. That's not totally unexpected, random plumbing and electrical issues took up more time than we'd hoped for. We are hoping to get the shower functional during this next week, but we have to move in tomorrow so we can vacate our rental by Monday. We may have to live with a plywood floor for a week or so, but nothing we can't handle. The first house we remodeled together didn't have a functional bathroom for well over a month, and we managed. The hardest part will be keeping our troublesome cats out of there, it's a veritable playground for the naughty kitties!
