All of my friends know that my husband and I bought a house last year..... and it seems that we have bought the dreaded money pit. I KNEW we should have bought that other house that was only 10 grand more and didn't need any work! :)
So for the last year we've been fixing this poor old house up. Honestly, I can't believe what a fresh coat of paint can do! But the bathrooms, oh you poor bathrooms.... I didn't mean to yell at you, I swear that I didn't mean to hurt your feelings when I started crying when the wallpaper wouldn't come off. But we're almost there. The end is in sight. We've finished with the bedrooms:
We ripped up the carpeting from the living room and hallways and put in hardwood. Let's just say that I really really don't miss all that vacuuming!
And the front yard was scary. Talk about overgrown plants (which were all mismatched and evil!!! evil evil scary plants)......... a plumbing leak, and a barren front porch....
We are almost finished with the front bathroom- I just need to caulk, put up one more coat of paint, and hang some pictures. (Then I can show you how pretty it turned out!). Also, grouting sucks and I'm never attempting that again. :)
