and here is what's to come next weekend (oh god, and lots more priming and painting):
and, just for kicks and so i can think about something other than paint (which i am most definitely still pulling from my hair):
this is the doorbell we've decided on
these are the house numbers we...well, that i purchased without spousal consent. i fessed up immediately, though, if that counts for anything. they're just so much cheaper than the ones i really love and very similar; i couldn't resist. photo from shelterrific
but, of course, there are more important things first, like getting our electrical done without killing ourselves, trying to not fall off ladders, and avoiding the crawl space.
