has been halfway done for quite some time now. It’s at the phase where it’s “good enough” and so we haven’t made any effort to completely finish it. You can say we’re lazy…. but in reality, we just haven’t had time to focus on putting up beadboard and a new backsplash. We’ve lived in this house for almost a year and a half and I’m proud of what we’ve accomplished in this crazy phase of life. When we bought this little cape cod, I walked in, LOVED it…. and immediately had a list of things that we were going to change. The couple that lived here before us had a very traditional style. Dark pine trim work, dark cabinets, NO color on the walls… yikes!
