Tonight, I looked through our purchases for this home renovation so far. We have purchased 325 individual items at Lowe’s but I’m sure the number will be closer to 500 by the time we are all said and done. We have used 55 gallons of paint to cover every inch of this house. I have made 49 trips to Lowe’s and that is not counting the trips made by our friends and family who have come to help. It has been a long and tiring process. I just can’t wait for us to have this house be our home.
