Today we painted our new bedroom, It took most of the day to TSP and lay down two coats. I got the job of edging along the top of the wall, which involved lots of climbing up and down the step stool to get more paint.

While we were waiting we also managed to wash the previous owners someone smelly refrigerator out.

Unfortunately for me I found some muscles that have been ignored for a long time, and so in addition to being really tired now, I suspect I'm going to be in a lot of pain tomorrow.

On the plus side, the room looked really nice when we left.

On the downside, we can see how the carpet looks rather worn, and with my new homeowner powers I keep thinking I should replace it.

Get someone in to clean the carpets. It's cheaper. :)

If you're going to replace it now's the time. Way more difficult once you're moved in with furniture! If it's not prohibitively expensive, I say go for it. :)

I don't really have much money left, and what I do have probably should go for a washing machine.
