Right to the point? We spent the holiday weekend painting. Well first we had to eat dinner, organize supplies, prep and repair walls, remove trim, fill nail holes in trim, and prime…then we got down to painting.
My motley crew consisted of my Uncle Dex, Daddy-O, that guy I married and myself. The skills we had ranged from actual professional to just learning.
We’re incredibly lucky that Uncle Dex and Daddy-O were and are willing and able to help us turn this house into our home. I’m so very thankful for the Dirty Dexters (as they call themselves)
I’ll get some more photos, but it was a pretty productive weekend if I do say so myself.

How was your weekend?
*Due to several mitigating factors, both living rooms need to be finished and the halls need a second coat of paint.
