Happy Wednesday Chickens! Time to show you what is INSIDE the house we recently bought. These are the "before" pictures. The "After" pictures may have to wait until we reach R for Renovations, because K is for "Keep Forgetting the Kamera." Anyhoo-here is the inside of the house we bought....
BEFORE: Walking in from the front door.
We kept the fireplace, but everything else went to white.
The Old Kitchen:
The only thing we kept in this room were the stove, the fridge and a few remaining threads of our sanity as we took this room down to the studs. Wait til you see how different it looks now!
The Original Mudroom
We kept nothing here but the walls and a skylight- stripped the wall paper, laid down a new floor, put in a new light fixture.
Former Family Room
We have discovered that one of the biggest challenges most new home owners face is WHERE TO PUT THE TV. How many marriages have been wrecked I wonder when the husband refuses to capitulate to the wife and put it over the fireplace?
Their Dining Room
Everything is gone now except the light fixture. One wall is a soft green and will have birch trees on it. If it ever gets FINISHED. Note to Sexyhusbandomine: Less time arguing with your wife over where the TV goes, more time putting up vinyl wall art please.
While a bidet might do much to improve Complicated Boy's personal hygiene, we chose to remove it and replace it with a washer and dryer. His bottom may be less than pristine, but darn it, he will have on clean underwear.
There are other rooms in this wonderful old house that we bought. Rooms where you can do things we have never been able to do in an apartment--like Store Large Christmas Decorations or Have Family Sleep Over and Not Want To Kill Them (Just kidding Dad. We Loved having You. Seriously. A week was not long enough.) There is this thing called a garage where I will be able to put all of Sexyhusbandomine's tools and not have to look at them! And a basement where the cat box can go. But the greatest thing of all is: MY OWN BATHROOM. (Well, really, it's supposed to be Sexyhusbandomine's and mine together but I figure he will use the one out in the garage. Where he will be sleeping if he doesn't stop arguing about where the tv goes.)
