Our Blank Canvas (read: we have a lot of work to do)

Living room and dining room

Current state of the kitchen. Small, but I can work with this.

Bathroom needs more loving than I am emotionally prepared to give at this point. 

Guest room, can you feel the hospitality?

Who doesn't love a good set of french doors? Apparently, the previous tenants.  If you were wondering, yes the windows were covered with contact paper and then PAINTED! Please tell me they didn't see this on Pinterest or all hope for Pinterest is lost. 

This closet looks like something out of Beetle Juice (nothing is square and it's black and white). Let me tell you, its going to be a miraculous built-in when we are finished with it!

Master bedroom. Yes Mom, I know the floor looks fine in this picture. Upon closer inspection you will see that it is not wood at all, but a sheet of roll-out linoleum intended to look like wood. Complete with fold marks and random bumps (I pulled a corner up and found a thumb tack, I guess the directions didn't specify to sweep the floor before installation)

Master bedroom, thank goodness for those two big sunny windows 

So, now that I need a glass of wine...

  1. Oh yes, I agree you do do have a lot of work ahead of you. However, I know the two of you are up for the challenge. I am so looking forward to watching the progress as it unfolds in your blog. Even more so I can't wait until we get to visit. (I did see you mentioned that you had a guest room.)...LOL
    Good Luck~
