Although we’re still waiting on a closing date from the bank, we’re so anxious to get into our new house. I wanted to share some photos, so you know why. It has large rooms, amazing woodwork and plenty of opportunity to make it ours.
As a disclaimer, pay no attention to the current decor. It’s the seller’s of course. Here is a look.
This is the sitting area right as you walk into the front door. The fireplace doesn’t work and we plan to repaint it. That mantle is really long and I can’t wait to decorate it – not with roosters. Sorry if you like roosters 🙂
And check out that staircase! It’s split, so there is about 6 steps like this down the hall, then it meets to go to the 2nd floor.
Next up is the dining room. This room might be the biggest decorating challenge because I am not in love with those vertical wood strips on the walls and I don’t have any ideas on what to do with them otherwise.
Next up, the kitchen. This is part of it and if you notice, there is a light lime green on the walls which we will paint of course. We’re thinking of a light grey for now.
Not in love with that back splash either, but it will have to do. The current owner remodeled this not long ago and it’s a really nice kitchen. See my tea mug in the foreground? That’s the island, yay!
One part of the house that needs a makeover is the basement. There is wallpaper on parts of the walls and pink paint on others. The carpet needs to be replaced too, but there is a ton of storage and bathroom down there.
What do you think of our soon-to-be new home? Like it, love it, got ideas for the dining room and bath?
