stage #2

So we have had a crazy busy weekend..the interior painting is pretty much done...so we moved in..... and we had our first sleepover at the cottage.........ahhh soooooooo exciting....it was great!!!!

Here are some pics from the weekend.......


our first dinner at the cottage.....some greasy fries and foot longs....well that's what they had not me...lol..........my parents came to help with the big cleanup....Mom made that floor shine!!!
so we didn't have our bed set up yet.....so our first sleepover was spent on the couches....


T and his Mom taking a break......


okay here we go.....finally got the mess cleaned up........there is still a bunch to do but it is getting there.........


the little bedroom.....I hope no one ever sleeps in there...I don't ever want to have to make those darn beds again.......my goodness I never knew what a challenge those were to make!!! haha
my grandfathers old trunk.......he built this trunk to bring all his belongings back to Canada after being in France where he was an Air Force Minister.....love it!!


our bedroom....



and the living room........

So as I said lots left to do......we are both sick of manual labour...lol...especially T...........as I have said before, we are not the handy type....but we are giving it our all on this project!! WOW this whole DIY stuff is really overrated.....lol

It looks fabulous! I love the down comforters and the red trunk (and the story behind it). Thanks for posting the great photos!
