Progress Made, but Nothing 100% Complete

Tomorrow is 7 weeks since we closed on our new home. It's been 7 long weeks of dust, dirt, and hard work...

Unfortunately there really isn't anything we can say is 100% complete, but so much progress has been made.

The Living Room 

Nate and I hung the drywall. I am sure that Nate wished he had a helper other than me, but we did it. We had many late Nate's after I finished working to get it hung throughout the house. 

 Nate did the taping, mudding, and sanding which was a lot of work. Since we are no experts in this and our walls are absolutely not square, it took a lot of mud to get it where we could at least live with it. We wound up spraying a light texture on the walls to try and hide some of the blemishes.

I wanted a very light gray paint color, and chose Behr Silver Drop, which I cannot seem to capture the color of with any picture. Unless you have something white against it, it does not look gray, it looks white. It is a nice clean color and definitely freshens everything up. 

This archway gave Nate a run for his money, but it turned out in the end.

Looking from living room into dining room

Love the color of our new carpet. It is a darker gray and looks terrific with the LVT floors in the dining room as well as the dark wood trim.

TV up and electric fireplace together... but still using camping chairs lol!

Our living room furniture should arrive on Thursday. Once that is here I will post "after" pictures even though we won't have the crown molding or trim complete.
