We have been

busy little bees...  
We decided to tackle painting all the trim, crown molding, and cabinets in our 80's built house.  This was a BIG job, considering we are out here on our own (without our parents or babysitters for that matter).  All our projects are done in the wee hours of the night while the kids are sleeping or if they happen to take a nap.  
Here's a glimpse of the job that seemed to take FOREVER to finish...

It ended up being MONTHS of work, but it looks so much better and brighter.  
We love the results.

Wow!!! I'm sure that was a TON of work but it looks awesome and updated. You did a great job. Not only will it look so much better for you but if ever the time comes to sell it will add a lot of value. Great job!!

What a transformation! You all did a beautiful job with the painting. I love the look of natural stained wood, but sometimes it can make a house a little dated. The bright white you all used really has reinvigorated things giving them a clean updated look. I also love how the white has made the crown molding "pop" and probably added height to your ceilings. Great work! I hope you all are getting enough sleep too! No babysitters!
