It's official...

Our house is officially on the market

Since Christmas we have been busy little leavers...

When we closed the store in September 2010 and sold the daycare we basically piled up everything in every nook and cranny in our house.

Spare bathroom:
Upstairs hallway

So in September 2011 after returning from our 4 month Maiden Voyage in our travel trailer, I stated unpacking and sorting and selling off all that stuff.

Remember when my living room looked like this

I am happy to say that by January we were able to move everything that was left into the garage and my living room now is back to normal again :)

And my hall even though the walls need a wash still is beginning to look like normal again.

After removing all the "stuff" from the spare bathroom, Ian tiled the floor. About 7 or 8 of the old tiles were all cracked and old and ugly looking so in a couple days we now have a beautiful new floor. It was on our to do list for a few years...funny how when we decide to sell we finally get around to actually doing the things we wanted to do for so long!
And the spare bathroom now looks like this

Even though we've had a cold streak here for the lower mainland BC we managed to get our front door paint this week finally. We took our inspiration for the front door colour from these Black Eyes Susan's in the fall against the freshly painted brown...the yellow was so pretty.
So yellow we went (One door at a time as it's snowy and cold right now so we had to remove the door and bring it inside to paint)...
To be honest I am not sure how I feel about the yellow now that it is's a bit brighter then expected. I'll try to get a daylight photo tomorrow and post in in a few days as I didn't take a picture when the door was finished.

So as you can see we've been busy...not just ignoring the blogs...just no time to sit down and play :) So we have a couple days before our listing actually shows up on MLS and then hopefully we will get some showings and have a quick sale! Until then...I'm off to wash walls!
