Our window sills are in pretty bad shape on the inside of the house. Last year the painter sanded them before painting them, but they still looked old .. the windows are original to the house so I guess that is normal.
Today I got the bright idea to put some shears in between the existing curtains. ( so I could confuse the buyer and they would not see what I was up to). I have the kind of curtains that sit on a rod with holes punched in them...type of thing. It looks pretty cool now. Almost cozy. I have been resisting shears because I don't want to be labelled as old just yet...but by damn I love them. It's like fairyland in here. And now that all the window sills have been photo shopped with my shears...we should sell this house at a premium price. Unless they open them up...duh..
Now I need help with the carpets. They have stretched over the years...or the underlay has disintegrated. I have little bubbles all over the place in my high traffic areas. Any idea's. I want to get them cleaned but am concerned that will make the problem worse. I will have to call a carpet cleaning company.
I never looked at my house through other peoples eyes before and now the little things are becoming very obvious. Or maybe I just watch too much HGTV. I know I have said that before.
I redid the bedroom today. It looks like a picture on TV. But by the time we actually get to move it will look like a dog's breakfast. I'm getting really tired of this.
Hopefully they will schedule the trades this week. But I just heard it was supposed to get down to record low temps.
The most frustrating part is ...when can we sell the house and know what our move in date is at with the new one?
Meanwhile I will be glossing over the house inadequacies ... mit some paint ..shears... a little tears..
