A few months ago, my hubby and I bought ourselves a little cottage in the historic district of our city.
A little house built in 1929.
The cuteness + the excitement was unreal when the house finally became our home.
The house was renovated in 2006, but over the years, wasn’t properly taken care of…
until we got in there and did the grunt work.
Yes, legitimate grunt.work.
Painting every room.
refinishing floors (yes, that includes stripping the floor, staining, sealing and YES it was miserable, but TOTALLY worth it.)
Trying to still love each other in the process.
There is so much charm in this little cottage that captured me when we initially considered buying it.
The main love was the windows in the master bathroom 🙂
So we decided to do some more grunt work, with EXTREME help from our contractor.
We picked paint colors and tiles,
went to home depot more than we’ve ever been before, and are now currently living in a construction zone.
Even an attempt to make boxes less “everywhere” seems IMPOSSIBLE.
(before of the master bath)-I can’t WAIT to show you the after pics!
As crazy as this may seem, living in a little bit of chaos that keeps on going teaches me so much about how life is a consistent process.
Most things take more than 24 hours to accomplish or obtain.
Nothing, not even living in a dusty, construction zone of a house, lasts forever,
And I love that He is.
