Ch-ch-ch changes

The changes begin in the new Bell home. We have comprised a list of all the things we want to do to make our wonderful home even more wonderful. The first step: getting rid of my lime green walls. Who paints walls lime green anyway? It added color and personality to our home. The problem was it wasn't our personality. So, two weeks ago we bit the bullet and went to work. It took two coats of primer to cover the lime green. We painted our kitchen, down the stairway, the hallway to the back bedrooms, and the living room. It took 7 hours for each of us to do prep work, prime, and paint the 1st coat all on one Saturday. We were pretty tired by the end of the day. It then took about 3 hours on Monday to do a second coat and clean up. Monday afternoon was the fun part. We went SHOPPING!!!!! Tai Pan here we come. We came out with tons of wonderful decorations for our kitchen. It is starting to feel like home.
