Another Tuesday and we are STILL on electric and painting (insert sigh). Thankfully, both are dangerously close to being done, although I hate to even say or rather write those words. But honestly, we are almost done with both of these particular projects. Next up: plumbing! Sounds exciting…doesn’t it?!


I have decided the light fixture pictured below is the most important one in the house. It’s the front foyer light that will hold a chandelier. I don’t know what chandelier just yet, but can we all just agree that it’s the most important one?!


We are on our third 1,000 ft spool of wire (of just this particular kind). I blame the house partially (because of the tall doorways and tall ceilings) and I blame myself partially (because of my obsession with tons of light options). We are both equally to blame.



Trent set up the scaffolding for me to finish the high points on the garage for painting (it’s about 20 feet up). Thankfully, I’m not afraid of heights!


As always, thank you for following along! Maybe I’ll have some finished painting photos for you in the near future!

    Forget all of the pretty stuff to come in the future, flipping a light switch & flushinga toilet will be awesome! 😂😂😂
