Episode #44: (MINI) Oops I’m Moving Again Follow Up Q+A

This week’s mini episode is a follow up to Episode 42 where I share the story of how we decided to move instead of build on. As expected, you all had a lot of questions, comments and feelings … so this episode is in response to that!

Ting is joining me again on this episode as Emma’s roof is being redone. I think he makes a really good co-host. So thank you Ting for filling in—especially since he did this with like 12 hours notice. 😀

You can stream the episode here on the blog or on iTunesSpotifyGoogle PlayTuneInPocket Casts, and Stitcher. You can find the podcast posts archive here.

Show Notes:

-So, definitely the MOST asked question was that you all want to see the new house. I promise we will get to that in the next month or two … but right now we are still under contract and I am superstitious about that stuff. I will say we are planning to do a video tour and a photo tour (plus years of blog posts to come!) so don’t worry … I can’t wait to share with you. It’s a part of my job, but I also genuinely love sharing home stuff with you!

-If you haven’t heard Episode #42 Oops I’m Moving Again, this episode is a follow up to that big announcement. So listen to that episode before this one!

-I answer all kinds of questions, including: Is the house haunted? How did you pay for this? What made you fall in love with the new home?

-If you have a ghost story, please send them to podcast AT abeautifulmess DOT com. We are planning to do two ghost story episodes this autumn. We LOVE ghost stories and I know you have amazing stories because we’ve occasionally received them in the past and it was a TREAT.

-I mention our main bedroom wallpaper (here’s a link to the wallpaper).

-Our a-frame playhouse and mid-century play set from our previous home.

-I mentioned that we ordered a Joybird sectional that never even arrived, so we rerouted it to our new home. Here’s the sectional … can you guess what color we chose? (hint-hint … the name of the color is very personal to our family)

Hard drying paint tutorial (use this if you want to paint kitchen or bathroom cabinets)

-Shout out to Davis Custom Finishes who painted our home within a week of me texting them (Wooo! If you live in Nashville, hit them up!) and also FGL flooring who did an incredible job on our wood floors.

If you have any other questions, just ask em here in the comments!!! xoxo- Elsie

  • I’m so sad to hear you had to leave the play sets at the old house! I’m guessing they didn’t fit on the hill of the backyard at the in-between house? They are so unique and charming- can’t wait to see what you come up with next.

    • Yeah- it would have been pretty destructive to try and move them- almost just as easy to rebuild. Plus Collin and I LIVE for these projects- so we’re not sad about it!!! 🙂

  • That title made me laugh. My mom can use that line. She moved a year ago and now she is moving again. She just didn’t like the neighborhood!

  • I love having Ting on the podcast! Hearing your friendship come through in your interactions is really fun. I’m getting to know you and Emma pretty well in your interactions with each other on the podcast but this is like getting to know a new side of you! Can’t wait to see the new home when the deal is closed. Can we see Nova’s wallpaper before you move though?
