Grandma's Sale

New Bedroom

Goodbye nice trim. I loved you.

We are moving to N Willow St. We are excited and tired.  So much to do.  So many things to paint white.  The list is so lengthy.  It keeps me up at night.  Stuart gets me up and my brain keeps me up. I lay there wondering if I should paint my piano white or not.
This piano.

This coffee table, and matching end tables. Paint them white? They do match the piano. I need to know what I'm doing here because when that piano gets rolled into place I don't want to be the one asking Nate to roll it into the garage a few months later. Piano's are not on his list of fun things to move.  Chances are once it's in place it'll stay that way.  At least for a very long time. 

More painting.

Ted and Ryan comparing how many Happy Hollister Books they walked away with.
I have to admit that at this point I was too nervous about the real estate selling soon to care about books.

Took some JR SR Banquet(Prom) pics after the sale.  I pretty much drool over old cars like this.  Was fun.


  1. Jo, I love your gray bedroom. gorgeous. And I feel very at home with the seventies kitchen and decor in your grandma's house.:) Are you really gonna paint the kitchen cabinets? No wonder you are overwhelmed! Every time I think about doing mine I do not know what color to paint them and can't imagine all the work so I just give up! I know that you will have this all looking so nice when you are done. Maybe we need to come help you out some day. I think Darrin owes Nater a day of free labor! :) Tina

  2. JO, it does look beautiful, and I painted my kitchen cabinets, it didn't take real long and we loved the outcome. have fun getting it all done.

  3. Congrats on the house, Jo. When do you plan on moving? Have fun with the painting! ~Cheryl

  4. This is your practical SIL's question. How long will the paint stay nice? I have no idea, but if it means more work later I'd let them their natural color since they already match. Whatever you do, I know it will be lovely.

  5. Hope to move in July before the Grenada trip.
