Here’s what we did last weekend:
The girls, Nevin, and I painted our mudroom white. Then Mark and I (mostly Mark) put down vinyl tile. We have now renamed the mudroom, “the sunroom.”
We know it isn’t perfect, but it is a vast improvement over what it was like out there. Now if we could go back to the weather of earlier this summer, we could actually sit out there. Oh well, it will be there as the summer turns into fall and cooler weather comes.
Here’s what our friend Ken helped Mark do this morning (well, Ken did most of it):
And here’s a photo with one of our hammy children:
I really should have a photo of the ugly old ceiling fan so you can appreciate the improvement, but just trust me, it was ugly. It was also too big and so wobbly that the lights haven’t worked for months. Of course, now the lights are bright enough that I will have to clean the kitchen floor more often. I’m willing to live with that.
