Sun Porch, I recovered the cushions, I found this table and chairs in the dumpster!

This is the day bed on the sun porch, it has a trundle! Very comfy pillows! Very soft and fluffy, a perfect place to read a book on a sunny fall afternoon.

Here are the chairs across from the day bed, I recovered them as well.

I refinished the front door. I stained it Antique Cherry. I think it turned out great. I probably gone should have gone slower and sanded more, but oh Well, that is the story of my life!

WOW! What a month this has been! We started out October as usual. looking forward to the upcoming holiday season. And BAM! Life happens. You sometimes get blindsided! That is what happened to us this month. Mike got laid off from his job of 15 years. We know that God is in control and He has a plan for our lives. I would be lying if I said that it wasn't scary! So saying all that is leading up to this.

We have put the house up for sale! Right now it isn't on the open market. We just have it listed with a local realtor and her agents. So we have been doing major painting, cleaning, painting, cleaning, more painting! Lots of repairs! It is amazing how much work has to be done to sell one's home! So as boring as it is, I am posting pictures of all the work we have done. We have rearranged furniture, painted trim and in general just tried to spruce things up. This is how focused we have been. On the day of the Ft. Hood shooting, Terra called us from Nashville to ask us what was going on at Ft. Hood (which is 20 miles from us). We had been so busy that day we hadn't even paid attention to T.V. (we were watching America's Funniest Videos when she called) Who couldn't use a good laugh now and then!

Here are some pictures of the things we have done!
