Here She Is

Here she is. Our future. The house we'll be living in for years to come! She's not ours yet, but we close in less than two weeks. We can't wait to get out of this tiny apartment we've been living in with its leaky shower and ceiling. Onto a bigger adventure!

When Brandon and I started house hunting we weren't expecting to fall in love with this one because we weren't huge fans of the exterior. The interior has so much to offer though(!) - three bedrooms, one and a half baths, two balcony's, a giant back porch/yard, a LIBRARY, and so much potential. We debated for a while whether or not we should put an offer in on it, but we are so glad that we came to our senses and did. And we got it! We've had months to plan and we can't wait to move in and get our hands on it. Here are a few projects we plan on tackling immediately:
  • Refinish the hardwood floors. They're currently in pretty good condition but we'd like to stain them a little bit darker and two of the bedrooms upstairs have carpet covering up the hardwood, so that needs to go.
  • Paint the entire interior white so it's fresh and clean. We plan on adding wallpaper to a room or two and may decide to add some color eventually but this will give us a clean slate to work with.
  • Demo the hideous tile fireplace and hope to find brick underneath. There's a salvage warehouse not too far from us, so we may try to find an old wooden mantel; if not, we may just build it ourselves.
So many more projects to come, but we can't get ahead of ourselves. More photos and posts to come once we close! Wish us luck!
