Well guys, I have reached the starting line! I moved into my little 60’s house 2 weeks ago and it’s been CRAZY. I am so glad to be blogging! I miss it. Unpacking with a 2 year old is not fun, but we are making progress.
I have had some good luck with this home so far and I am hoping it just keeps coming! The fire place had this HIDEOUS black, metal covering, and after begging my husband to take a couple of screws out to see what was behind it, we struck gold! Let there be brick! I do not have a before picture (Idiot! I know), but it matched my range hood below. Why did EVERYTHING have to be so dark??
As you can see, we still have to paint the ceiling, but the difference is amazing!
We painted immediately. I was unpacking and my husband was filling his lungs with oil based paint, poor guy! The fumes were terrible! Wyatt and I had to leave the house.
I would love to have ripped out the wood paneling and install new sheet rock, but for now, it’ll do! The beams pop now and I am in love. I will reveal the kitchen in the next post, because we are planning on painting the cabinets this weekend! **Insert happy dance here!!** The yellow floors are KILLING me, but I am trying my hardest to be patient.
I hope this gives you a little glimpse of the tiny but impactful changes we have made. I probably should have waited until I had everything set up to take an awesome picture, but I just had to post. I am so excited to show my style and to really see what I can do. I hope my husband survives! Pray for him, y’all.
Spreading the happy to all your homes,
