It been sometime since I have updated my progress with helping my Mom with her downsizing, move and getting her house ready for sale. She has pretty much settled into her new place. Most boxes have been unpacked except her sewing room. We hung her pictures and some decor. Her new couch was just delivered the end of last week. She will eventually replace curtains in at least the LR and her BR to match her stuff.
Right now she wants us to concentrate on getting her house ready for sale. Which we are anxious to do because as long as she still owns it DH and I are the ones having to keep the lawn mowed and trimmed every week. We finally got over there yesterday and started taking the wallpaper down in her bedroom. It is coming off very easily, thankfully. I am going back today and will hopefully get it the rest of it done! I took the curtains down that they put up after they wallpapered and I honestly don't know if they were ever taken down to wash!! They are so dusty and faded. It's funny the room side of the curtains are the original sea foam green, the window side is faded to gray/white. I really don't think they are worth putting back up, but I'll see what my Mom want to do. We were hoping to only have to paint her bedroom, the one with the wallpaper, and then the other 2 bedroom ceilings, but now that the house is empty all the woodwork at least upstairs looks very knicked up. I just don't know how far we should take it all. Do we just touch up the knicked up areas? Painting all the trim would be a huge job, not one I really want to take on.
If you can believe it there is still more items that will need to be hauled off to the dump and Goodwill. We are going to get it all out to the garage and then make one last trip when we're done with the inside projects.
So that's where we're at right now. Hopefully it sells quickly!!!!
