The basement. This is just a fraction...an entire other side and storage area behind the interior walls I did not take photos of (mainly because I hadn't had a full cup of coffee yet).
This morning in mid-Michigan it was a "balmy" 32 degrees and still pitch black...made loading of the 10ft utility trailer in the dark not so fun.
I donned my "waist trainer" ala Kardashian's and we got to work...going up and down the stairs 50 times.
Wonder if I wear it long enough I will finally have a waist?
Anyhoo, we packed my Terrain, the bed of Hub's truck as well as the utility trailer with a tarp over the top and set off. Thank goodness there was a rest area on the way just as the tarp came off the top of the grill, which in turn let the grill cover fly free and ash began to blow out, so we could readjust said tarp. Smooth sailing after that to the Homestead in the Thumb. The inlaws met us at the new casa and helped us unload (thank you!!!!!).

I managed to get a 2nd coat of BM Revere Pewter (mixed in SW Superpaint) on the living room walls and began on the master suite hallway. I didn't want to stop painting but my body was shutting down after 12 hours of go-go-go. Still amazes me after all these years of repainting rooms what a difference paint can make to a room.
BEFORE (with seller's goodies):
Speaking of paint colors, I made a few changes to my original design boards...
The master bedroom will still be getting the BM Montpelier treatment but the master bath will now be BM Woodlawn Blue:
The guest bedroom went from BM Dry Sage to BM Guilford Green:
Now it is time to kick up my very sore legs (and butt from the 500 flights of stairs they traversed today), crack a beer and rest for another marathon moving session...one more basement load left! Soon these pants will be standing by themselves:
