keep on keepin on
liz’s place was move in ready. note to self: that’s a good plan.
how the hell she convinced me to move in to a fixer upper i’ll never know. talk about sweat equity… thankfully i have charming landlord who’s helping cover the costs to do the work. but what i’ve seen and done over the last few days is far from pretty.
she also has furniture. what was i thinking?
and those floors!
ah yes, the tour of liz’s petit palace ends with her terrazzo porch…
mine got its first round of cleaning and pressing yesterday as i prepped the garage for the cleaning crew (i didn’t want anyone to see it as it was, it was so bad)! today was interior cleaning and painting, both of which are going to happen all over again tomorrow! but covering up these horrifying colors was crucial for my aesthetic sanity and the entire place finally got primed today, whew! (these are of course before pics)
thankfully the kitchen and baths are updated so cleaning is the main thing
believe me, i made these pics look good. the last tenants trashed this place.
next task? painting the garage floor. then before i can move a thing in to the house, the terracotta floors have to be restored. how can you trash terracotta? i’m so on autopilot, but the end is in sight. must keep going…i could care less about furniture and stuff, as long as the bones are clean and polished.
btw, i need your opinion: do you leave spiders and their webs where they are or encourage them to relocate? (they’re outside, not in)
