Alrighty.. the end of the house tour is near. We have one room left!
Story... After we got engaged, Darin intended for our honeymoon to be a surprise to me. Well, we got a deal from a guy that I work with so I had to be involved in our trip to Acapulco. Darin still wanted to surprise me somehow. At the time, there was only one more room left to remodel at our house... the master bedroom! Oh how conveinent! From December of last year to May 28 2005(our wedding day) I was banned from seeing our bedroom. You may wonder how I gave up rights to what my bedroom looked like??? Oh.. I didn't. He let me pick everything out & he and his recruitees did all the work. Yep.. I am a spoiled bratt. I didn't lift a finger and got a beautiful bedroom surprise! =)
So, here's the before picture:
The last people converted this room from a garage. It has the one small window, had a great hole in the wall, & didn't have a closet. So.. my wedding night I walked into this...
I love it. Yep, I stood there and cried. He had put up the bright white car siding, painted the walls my pretty red color, laid the carpet himself and added 2 closets and a bathroom.
Here's the wall with the closets that leads into the bathroom:
And here's my bathroom.. he built EVERYTHING!! (Please ignore me in the pic)
He remembered that I wanted the countertop higher, put in 2 sinks, tiled the floor, made those cabinets with the super cool wainscoting in the middle and put the silver pulls on even though they weren't his faves. It was the best surprise I have ever recieved in my entire life. I love this man.. not because of what he does for me, but his eagerness to please me and love me in all sorts of different ways. He is such a gift!!!
And.. here's our next project!
Oh guys, look at that gross roof, those dated windows, doors and siding.. YUCK! It's screaming for our love. This is our next house that we are in the process of buying. We can't wait! SO much potential!!!
Babysat my ADORABLE nephew last night. Geez, I love that little boy. I think he's starting to realize that I am crazy aunt Darcy that will do anything for him to laugh at me. Seriously, I look RIDICULOUS trying to make him laugh. We had him SO wound up last night. I can't wait until he gets to drink pop. He can have unlimited pop at my house. Gabby, Mara.. this pic is for you: Doesn't he look like a little amish baby?
This weekend we are going to Tennessee to visit my sister and her hubby. We leave today at 11am and I am so excited. I LOVE TN! She's surrounded by mountains, has great restaurants and shopping and everyone is SO nice! Seriously, us northern people are snobs compared to southerners. So again, I will not be bloggin' until next Tuesday. Man.. this addiction is bad!!!
