I know I have not been around this last six weeks or so, but moving has taken all my time and entergy . We bought a cute 1964 mid century modern home, with the orginal kitchen, it is very cute and the original bathroom, so pretty !! clean as can be, we are so lucky one family owned it its entire life and they are very clean people !!
We are making head way but have a way to go.
Here are a few pictures of our progress.
pantry repainted and loaded this weekend !! Yes, that is a yard sale sticker on that vase, lol !!!
I have to confess, living room is full of boxes now, and there is a book case on the far side of the tv, but no books unpacked yet. Still working on knick knacks and kitchen, fun !!!!
nice view from kitchen to living room, hung a tv to watch while I cook, got a new fridge, managed to find one for our cute but tiny kitchen !! Still have to do the dishwasher, stove top and hood fan. Waiting on best buy to come out and measure.
new rug for kitchen, you can see how small it is !!! It is in very nice shape though. Remodel is planned for the future, but until then, we will embrace our small vintage kitchen !!
was so excited to get the border off and then I find a challenge. They had built up plaster where the border was because of the texture on the wall. What in the heck do we do with that. ARghhhhhh !! Not a fun discovery last night !!!
kitchen before fridge, took off the border over the counter top and it had been glued in places so it took off chunks of plaster and paint, but at least still had the texture and the damage areas are not too big. Got the back done, got to do both sides. Then there is another layer of border above the upper cupboards, but it is on painted wall paper, so hopefully that goes smoothly. We really do not want to see what is under that wall paper at this point !!!
Well, anyway, so, looking better every week, have spent a fortune on tons of that odd small stuff for the house, and I am sure we will spend tons more. All those small things add up.
If I am missing for a bit longer, now you know why !! I will post update pictures as we get things done. It has been a crazy move and fairly brutal on both of us for some reason.
I will be back soon and havce some projects to share.
Thanks for stopping by !!
