So, this is our latest project and why I've been socially absent. Our new house.
Hubby retired and we're settling into Nevada, home of the Flying Elvis Impersonators, All You Can Eat Buffets, and tacky.
There was a lot to love about this house. And a lot not to love. Over The Top was the previous owner's first, middle and last name. So, we've been working the past couple of months to tone it all down, or in some cases, to liven it up. And because it's Vegas...we kept a little bling. What happens here, stays here, right?

Here's what we did:
This room is still largely unfinished. So, I will keep you apprised of its progression.
So far, it looks like this:
I figure you've had more than your eyes can handle for one day. Keep checking in. There's a lot left to do and see!
Don't get me started on that landscaping...its life expectancy is about one more week.
