Hi lovely readers! I have exciting news to share. I have been hinting around recently about an exciting development for our family. I am tickled pink to announce that we have purchased a new home!!
We have been renting this house for 3 years and the owners decided they wanted to sell it. I could not imagine moving and there was so little on the market where we wanted to be, I was praying we could swing it to buy the house. After much nagging and selective suggesting, I convinced my husband we could do it.
My little ladies were pretty happy about it too! My oldest’s best friend lives next door, so she made the decision that we were NOT moving.
The photos are terrible and are either cell phone pics or old MLS photos, so forgive me. The home was built in 1927 and while it needs tons of work, it has “good bones” as they say. Hardwood floors, molding, built-ins, swoon! It is in a wonderful neighborhood that is full of old homes with character and the bonus is it is very close to all of our parents.
The kitchen and master bath are my least favorite, but it could be worse. The best news is that the home inspection revealed that there was dry rot coming from the hideous 1990’s ice block window, so the homeowners agreed to re-do the bathroom. This was all outside of our purchase price.
So, I am basically getting a re-model for free!!
Here is what it looks like now. Eeek!! I am in the process of picking out tile and fixtures and it is oh so fun!
I am so excited to finally own this home that I have put my heart and soul into decorating! I have SOOOO many projects and very little budget to do them. Don’t tell my husband!! So, the good news is there are going to be a ton of DIY and renovation reveals coming on the blog.
Follow along as you see how our new home progresses. I also plan to do a bunch of live posts on Periscope, so make sure you follow me. You can read all about Periscope here.
Now I am off to see about selling our other home! Never a dull day.
