Now that everything is official and the house is ours, I thought I'd show you the pictures. These pictures are from the listing with the seller's things.
My new office!
As you can see, I have a lot of work to do. And on a small budget.
Before we move in, we are having the popcorn ceilings removed and new carpet installed. I think these two things will make a world of difference. Since we are having these two things done in an empty house, it's a lot less expensive since nothing has to be moved. (And the popcorn ceiling guys don't need to cover the old carpet).
Then I'll go through painting room by room, including mouldings. (NOT looking forward to this!) I will also replace the hardware in the house (starting with the kitchen).
Eventually, I want to lay tile (myself) in the bathrooms, something I've never done. But thank god for You Tube videos!
And someday, probably years from now, I'd like to refinish the hardwoods and bring them into the kitchen, and add granite to the countertops.
So that's it! You'll know what I'll be doing in my spare time for the next year or so :) But at least it will make for some good blog content!
ps - Today's my birthday 26th birthday. What did I get for my birthday? This house! haha
