Back in June before school got out for me, Brian started on all the home improvement projects at home. He started with painting the first floor a darker color. He had to move all the furniture which prompted us to rearrange furniture and buy new pieces (which have yet to arrive). Once I get the house set up how I want it (and get new curtains) I will post pictures. After painting, Brian tore up the floors and put hardwood floor down. It looks so nice! It was quite the project though and it was hard to live with a first floor (that includes the play area) that was out of commission. N2 helped Brian paint the walls. Apparently they rolled while Brian painted around trim and at the ceiling.
