With the move going on, and how our lives are changing so much right now with a recent downsizing. We're going from the house we've spent the last twenty years in (almost to the date, actually), and we'll soon be renting a much smaller house (Going from three bathrooms to one. EEP!). It honestly makes me feel more like the characters in Sense and Sensibility, who had to move when their patriarch died, and their house and money went to their older half-brother. Thankfully, no one has died, we're just downsizing.
Here are some progress pictures. I'll post the finished product once I get my room set up.

|Looking at the door|
|Cutting is evil and necessary|
|Seriously, cutting is awful|
|It's going to be worth it, though.|
|This is only one coat, but I love the richness.|
We're working toward making our lives better, and downsizing is a step in the right direction. I think I'm just excited to get a bigger room. I'm going to be so sad to leave, but at least We get to stay on this side of town.
I watched Sense and Sensibility the other night, practically quoting it, since I've watched it so much in my life. Jane Austen didn't marry, so she was the queen of observers. She wrote comedy-of-manners type stories, and I can pinpoint different people in my life who match up to characters in her novels (as I'm sure most Jane Austen fans can). Still have yet to find her heroes, though.
