A Girl's Best Friend! {Closets}

So up to this point, all of mine and Clay's clothes have been either hanging on hanging racks or folded in a laundry basket. Our poor hanging racks are stuffed to capacity and then some! There were a couple of things that I have been stubborn about throughout the remodeling process...1. BIG CLOSETS and 2. An organized kitchen and pantry area. Well, Clay and Mike were at it again this past weekend and built the frame for the closet that will be in our master bedroom. It is HUGE and I'm loving everything about it!! We won't be able to use it until we texture and paint, but it makes me smile when I come into our room and think that one day I won't have to squeeze another piece of clothing onto the darn hanging rack. I took plenty of pictures during the whole process so I will have to post those for you to see soon! The before and after pics are really great. More to come from the newlyweds...

I am finally getting around to posting the before and after turned out great!

Diggin' In {Walls}

This past weekend was an exciting time for The Simmons' household! Clay and Mike started knocking down walls and putting up sheet rock Saturday morning. Forming walls in the house really makes the final layout of the house come to life! I can finally start to see our little home transform into what will one day be the house we have grown to love. So far, the wall that divides our bedroom from the rest of the house is up and the hallway opening has been made. Our next project will be completing the walls for the utility room and the pantry, which will share a wall. I can't wait to finally be able to wash laundry in our home and smell one of my favorite smells...fresh laundry!

This picture is probably the only picture of me working that day...holding up the sheetrock lol =)

And this one shows the bedroom view of the wall that was made. The ladder is where our closet will eventually be...sigh =)

This gives you an idea of the mess that was made, but it makes me sigh with relief that it didn't stay that way very long!
