Hi ya’ll I hope you had a lovely weekend. Spring is in the air around here and weather was beautiful. As I mentioned Friday, I have some exciting news and another round of big changes coming very soon!
After being in my little apartment in Charleston for 6 months, Gracie, Jack and I are moving. I am so thankful for the apartment that we moved into in August, once we painted and settled in we have been very comfortable. However, after being in WV for six months I have realized it is time to move…again.
Every weekend I find myself packing up the car, and the dogs, and driving an hour from Charleston to the little town of Fayetteville. I look forward to it every weekend. I have met some friends in town and really love the small town feel. Each week it gets harder and harder to drive back to Charleston. I have been searching for a rental for the past couple months to make the move permanent, but rentals are in short supply and it has been a challenge.
Last week, while my cousin was visiting Fayetteville, a little 2 bedroom rental house became available suddenly. I jumped on the opportunity to look at the place and it is perfect! It needs some work, but the landlord said I could make it my own (with the exception of painting woodwork). I am moving the large furniture in this coming weekend and will be a full-time resident of Fayetteville by the end of the month.
Please be patient (once again) while all of the moving is taking place. I took a few BEFORE photos to share with you. I have a lot of DIY projects planned ( without the travel back and forth every weekend I will have more time to work on projects, which I have missed).
A few Before photos…it needs some work, but as you know…that’s just how I like to find them…
Porch (I can definitely see some fun projects here)
I am on my way over to start cleaning now and I am already thinking about paint colors. The living room is first, any suggestions?
