Weekend Projects. fun! fun!

We completed 2 things around the house today.

1) Painted the front door.
2) Cleaned out the refrigerator.

It is amazing how we lived in our house for 4 years with a total of 9 roommates and when we moved out our door was white and looked as good as new. Eight months and one family later our door was destroyed. It is amazing that our renters were able to cause the destruction they did in such a short amount of time. Not only was the door covered in scratches, scum, and god knows what else, but the entire frame was cracked- basically damage that could only be done if someone was trying to kick down the door.

Thanks to Chris's handywork and a can of paint, our entry is as good as new and we dig our new black door.

Our second project for the day was to clean out the refrigerator. You are probably thinking "What in the heck do you have rotting in there that would cause it to be a day's work to clean out the rerigerator?"

Well, it was one of the last projects caused by our renters. We have no idea how this happened but we're guessing that they let their 2 year old play with bright pink nailpolish.......IN THE REFRIGERATOR!!! Yes, there was spilled nailpolish, splattered nailpolish and just plain old bright pink nailpolish all over the inside of the refrigerator and freezer. Thanks to a few bottles of nailpolish remover and a few rolls of papertowels....we're back in business again and our refrigerator is as good as new!
