Painting the bedroom

I should call this "The Elliott home improvement blog" since that's about all we do...but we enjoy making our house look good and when the time comes to sell hopefully we'll see the rewards.

We have been wanting to paint the bedroom since we moved in 2 1/2 years ago, but other projects took precedence. So this rainy weekend we finally got around to it! 3 of the walls are Popcorn Ball and the other is Riviera Sand



Excuse the mess, as of this morning, were still putting stuff back together.

Easter



For Easter we spent the day with Gary's Mom, Sister, & our Niece and Nephew. It was a small gathering, but we had a great time!

The video above truly touched my heart, there are so many issues that people are struggling with now a days, and this shows us that we arent alone in our struggles. Whatever they may be, I hope you dont feel alone, there is always someone with you.

"One of the great consolations of this Easter season is that because Jesus walked such a long, lonely path utterly alone, we do not have to do so"

A Porch Story


Enjoy my attempt at a slide show!
video



The Porch is FINISHED! Well, almost...there is still some stuff that goes on the cieling part to cover the trusses, I think its called Soffit? Anyway, other than that the cement part of the porch will be tiled as soon as the weather gets better. And then it's done! Gary stained & sealed it yesterday and it looks fabulous! Its ready for furniture! Im ready for furniture, Iced Tea, and Summer!

Thanks Gary!!
