The home was built in 1951. I think that it's only had one owner. It's very well maintained and I feel like we got a good deal. The house payment is above our comfort zone, but not by much. The neighborhood is one of the best in our city and we should have no problem reselling in the future. It's close to our bike trail that we love, which is worth every penny of our payment every month. I can't wait till spring and I can just jump right on the trail and ride. Of course my decorating wheels are in overdrive. I am not going to share tons of photos because most that I took aren't that great. I really want to focus on every room in future posts with all my ideas for each space. Here is the living room below...
They just put the carpet in! Guess what? There are hardwood floors under there!!! That's what I want, so sooner or later that carpet will go bye bye. Plus my pets will probably destroy it anyways. The window is beautiful and I can't wait to see it without those curtains. The paneling will be painted for now and I may paint the stone on the fireplace also. The house has 4 bedrooms, 2 full baths and a family room in the basement. All this decorating may make my brain explode. LOL I am missing all the stores that I used to be close to when I lived in Ohio. Now everything is a far drive away. Below is the basement bathroom. YUCK! This will be one of the first rooms to be remodeled! I do like the faucet. At least I can keep that.
Simon is trying to help me pick out paint colors!
Or maybe he's just being needy?
So now we wait and PACK. I packed so much already. I found that most of my stuff is decorative and doesn't need to be out anyways. Getting a jump start on it will help me relax as the actual moving date approaches. Pinterest is going to help me out so much in the next few weeks. I can see what my eye is drawn to and figure out ways to make my ideas come to life in my own home. If only money grew on trees!!! It will be a slow process for us and I plan to be thrifty. We have a new Menards being built here, anyone shopped there before? I hope that you will enjoy watching my decorating journey as we put some life back into this outdated home. :)
Have you seen photos of my last house?
It was the reason I started My Mod Style! See it HERE.
