Oy Gevalt

We are racing around the clock to finish hanging a new sheet rocked ceiling, scrape wall paper and dismantle the closet in the guest bedroom. Next Monday we are getting our upstairs floors professionally sanded! We will be doing the guest bedroom, office and hallway. I found the contractor through another blogger on here. His prices are very inexpensive and he's the only person I've met yet who I'd trust in my house without me being there.

It will be nice to walk on the floors without having my feet feel dirty even after I've just washed the floors. We were planning on sanding the floors ourselves but I'm going to leave this one to the pros. We have quite a few repairs that need to be done on the floors and I just want it done correctly. I just don't want another large dreadful project. Luckily he will be able to have the floors done within 3 days.

I also ordered 2 new roller shades for the dining room. Who knew shades could be so expensive? I spent $286 on two of them- custom of course, and that's the best price I found. They are going to look really great! I can't wait to get rid of our smoke yellow shades that currently adorn our windows. I guess we'll just have to get 2 at a time. I'm having trouble finding good colors in for shade fabric. Most manufacturers have limited and boring colors. =(
