So here is the low down – three weeks ago we ago we were pondering moving to a space that better fits our needs and were pretty apathetic about the whole thing since the housing market is ca-razy right now and there are just not a lot of houses for sale and if they do happen to be for sale they get snapped up super quickly. So here we are casually browsing for a place and two weeks later we are in the process of buying a new house and prepping the heck out of our house to get it ready to be on the market starting next week (eep).
So this whole process has certainly been testing our fitness with carrying heavy boxes up and down stairs and moving 150 pound doors around…. Yes, our “spare parts” doors weigh at least that much. My legs are Jello and my arms are rubber but I’m very thankful that I do crossfit because I can’t imagine how I would feel if I didn’t!
So as far as WHYNBTYW, I will go for a home improvement item which I am a huge fan of now. We have some older outdoor decks that we stained a few years ago but they were looking rough. I bought some new stain… Rustoleum 10x… It’s line painting with peanut butter. This stuff is perfect for old wood! I barely recognize my side deck and front stairs. I opted to paint the stairs with the textured roller (so they wouldn’t be slippery) and I painted the vertical pieces with a paint brush (note: the grit in this paint will ruin your paint brush just FYI). So, if you have an older deck that is still solid but looking sad… Definitely check out the rustoleum line, highly recommend.
If you know anyone that wants a very pretty Victorian house in Wooster, Ohio… Send them my way.. I happen to know one for sale 😛
