"Paint it before you move in.   Let her do several things to "mark" it as her house. Trust me, this is very important to her. The paint is going to be the easiest thing. After that, you can also do stuff like hardware on the cabinets…"

"Paint is cheap. I got my outdoor furniture at yard sales.  One cargo-furniture set that I had reupholstered. But if money is very very tight, things can be put off."

"We did what you are discussing. To some degree we over spent.  My suggestion is to get the basics then go room by room project by project.  Get a book draft out the rooms. Then fill the pages with color options and ideas and then calculate…"

Nature of relationships
