On Friday I told you about our decision to stay in our rental for a while longer and put off buying a house for now. I am so relieved about this decision. Nothing we looked at really felt right. It felt like a whole lot of money for houses we only liked…not loved. So we decided to stay.
But there are some problems with this house. The kitchen lighting is horrid, the paint is all a barfy peachish beige in the flat paint variety that just always looks dirty, there are some storage issues too.
And then the garage. Its small and we never intended to use it to actually park a car in, but it was so full of clutter it was driving us all cray.
We fixed all that this weekend. We rented a truck and loaded up the stuff we weren’t using right now and brought it all to storage. We also removed some furniture that was too big for our current space.
And now it looks like this.
We are SO happy about this.
But now the garage looks great and the inside of our house looks insane. We went through a bunch of the boxes in the garage and brought things inside that we wanted to be using. So now we’ve got all this stuff inside we need to find a place for. Also, I’m painting, which makes everything super messy. I have most of the lower level done. Today I need to put everything back in its place. I painted it Grey Owl by Benjamin Moore.
The only area not painted on the lower level is Sophia’s room, which I am pretty sure I’ll be painting Palladian Blue by Ben Moore.
Then I will be moving upstairs to paint. I’m pretty sure I’ll be painting it Ashwood by BM.

Alright…so now that the ball is rolling with making our townhouse more us, I’m on a roll. Gotta go do some organizing 🙂
