We are in the process of getting our house on the market and I had no idea how much junk we've accumulated and how I obviously have too much decor! When you both work from home and have had previous jobs with office space (Josh's old church job and my old teaching job) you have TONS of books, office supplies, random furniture, etc! We rented a storage facility today to hold our excess stuff. Sadly, 30 boxes later, we STILL have a ton of stuff! It was a very productive day, though. Josh got some yard work done, a tree dug up, the roof repaired, etc. I got our ceilings repaired, cleaned out our extra room/closet, staged different rooms, got our front porch cleaned off, etc. It is coming along, gradually!

We'll be ready to list it and sell in a few weeks. If you know anyone who might be interested, email me! We're praying for an easy sell! We're going to miss this house! It's been a good one!

By the way, we are getting rid of the 2 black chairs (chair/loveseat) that are pictured in before pic of the extra room. (The loveseat is pictured slightly folded up against the wall.) They are FREE for anyone who wants to take them. Otherwise they go to the thrift store on Tuesday! Leave me a comment or email me if you're interested. They would make great dorm room furniture. They fold up and can be wiped down for an easy clean! They are black with dark wood arms.

I can't wait to have the whole house done! I'll post pics as the rooms/projects are completed!
