We’ve finally settled on a home, and we think it was worth the wait.
She’s a fine old historic house right in our neighborhood.
The contract is signed, our inspections have been done, now we’re just waiting on the bank and we’ll be moving!!!!
I was sure to take some “before” photos while we were having the electrical inspection.
Here she is:
We’ll be changing out some of the paint colors, light fixtures, and getting a little electrical work done first thing. There is still old knob and tube wiring up in the attic, which isn’t safe.
But other than that she’s move in ready.
We’ll have to update the kitchen and upstairs bathroom as we go along. They are VERY vintage. I keep joking that the oven looks like it should be in a museum, and NOT in a good way.
And the upstairs bath is covered in pinky/peach tile. Also NOT in a good way.
While I was window shopping one day last week I saw the most awesome retro table and chairs.
I fell in love!!
I kept thinking how cool they would look in our new kitchen in a retro/farmhouse style kind of way.
Think this pinterest pic but with glass windows in the upper cabinets:
Or this cute breakfast nook from pinterest:
I hemmed and a hawed, I perseverated and obsessed. It was such a good deal $120.00 for the chairs and table.
Now we do need a new couch and two new beds for the girls for the new house, so we’re trying not to spend money before we move, but as usually happens I wore the old man down.
Here’s my new little breakfast nook set that I plunked down in the living room for now:
Well enjoy your weekend friends! I think I’ll start packing and stay away from antique shops! =)~
