House porn.

Wonder of wonders, miracle of miracles ... we are starting to see a light at the end of the home rehabbing tunnel. The floors were refinished this week, and the grand reveal is tomorrow. And in eight days? We're moving.

Well, we're gonna start camping at the new house. While keeping our other two houses staged. So, we're gonna camp with four dogs, some clothes, one bed, and one futon. And I'm ready.

But in the meantime ... let's take a look at the way we were, shall we?

We decided that these walls looked like that grated carrot salad that grandmas make. You know - the one with the raisins?
Yuck.

Now? It's a lovely sage-y grey color.
And the office? It used to look like it had been fingerpainted with feces. Because that's a good look.

I guess it was so bad that we didn't take a picture of it. So, use your imagination. Fingerpainted poo. Seriously.

Now? Grey and soothing. No poo!
This might be my favorite picture of the entire renovation. Sure, it looks like a picture of a dirty bathtub ...
... but OHMYGOD! Whose legs are those? Who did you kill?

Yeah, those were my legs. And check out my Christmas gifts - yes, I asked Santa to bring me kneepads.
And yes, I am every man's dream girl.

This is going to be the greatest house ever. It already looks like a model house. And knee pads for Christmas - from your fiance? He had cleaning in mind. Sure.

I'm going to start referring to your new place as "The Sweathouse." But seriously, that's great progress!
