    Yay for the drywall fairies!!! I remember feeling that way when the drywall finally went up at our house as well especially as we’d been looking at studs & rough wiring for MONTHS! It makes such a difference to be able to see walls up & have everything begin to take shape. Congrats on making it to the summit! 🙂 looking forward to seeing how it all turns out.

      You’re so right, Tash. It’s amazing what drywall can do. Suddenly, your project (that might not EVER get put back together) has walls. It’s going to be a real house. You can live here!

      It’s amazing how exciting it makes the whole project seem. 🙂

    your cupboards are lovely!! mine are prob from the 20’s and could use an update but it is mad expensive. Two of my friends just got it done and it cost $10,000 for a guy to custom make theirs in our town ..like OUCH
    I hope that next yr I can actually start to do things around our really old house !! (both my kids are moved out now)

      Oh, thank you, Sabina. I don’t know that I’d pick these off of the shelf – but they’re perfectly good. They’ll do.

      And yes, cabinets are CRAZY expensive. If your cabinets are wood, there is a plethora of things that you could do to them.

      A surefire way to get things done in your house? Start ripping stuff apart… you’ll HAVE to fix it! 😉

    Yay, things are moving along!! It’s going to look fabulous too, I’m sure! 5 cents, huh? We paid 10 cents a nail for ours outside in the driveway when we renovated and the kid got over 100!!

    I LOVE the drywall fairy! Drywall suuuuucks, but its so nice to get it over and done with before you move in. That drywall dust is even worse when you have furniture and drapes!

    Oh Tara! Good for you! I remember that very same feeling! You’re almost there! FYi…I’m still finding sheetrock dust. That stuff is worse than Christmas glitter! It’s all going to be gorgeous.
