Time to decorate

The guest room/office was the room with the least amount to do. Now that the hardwood floors are in, all we have to do it paint and decorate. "You know you're old if you are buying a trundle bed" were the lovely words spoken by my friend Julie when I told her she would no longer have to be sleeping on a futon during her next visit. This has some truth to it.

Now that the wood scraps are gone and most of the sawdust has been cleaned up, the place is filling up with boxes. We got the trundle bed and a new patio set and our new bedroom set in on its way. But, before we can set this all up we need to get the space where it is going put together.

The guest room needs to be painted and the deck needs to be . . . re-treaded? Is that a word? No idea, but we need to out new wood on the top because the current pieces were never properly treated and are not splintering and disgusting.

If we get cable in phone running in the house we can re-arrange the living room to make a space for the dining table. Since it's Dan's 30th birthday is this weekend, we won't be doing much around the house. I have high hopes for May!

** I know reading is no fun without pictures so I will try to put some up soon.
