A Big Decision and a Lot of Chaos
We made a decision. I orderd the long arm quilting machine a few weeks ago. And I am so excited. As I posted earlier Steve came up with 4 options for remodeling our house to make room for the long arm. After a lot of thought and measuring we decided on a 5th plan. The 5th plan involves a lot more work but we both decided it would be the best plan. Steve removed a closet, 2 half walls, carpet, a split stone fire place and the chimney that was in the garage. He replaced dry wall, built a closet where the chimney was and had to do some other repairs. We picked out new carpet for two rooms and then it was time to choose paint. I have never been good at picking colors, I have always felt safe with an off white color. My sister Carol and I spent quite a bit of time with paint chips and decided on a soft green color and I love it. My sister loves to paint so she did all of the walls. Steve and I had painted the ceiling in one room and did the primer paint on the new dry wall and the walls where we had removed wall paper. It has been a lot of work but we are now on the down hill slide. Actually I am waiting today for the carpet guys but I have a feeling it is not going to happen today. I am very tired of dealing with the chaos but I am excited about the final outcome. My sewing room has more than doubled in size. Oh, I think the carpet guys are here, yea!! Yes, they are here and figure they can get both floors done today. Then the fun of putting everything back together will begin.
