Other than having to spend many hours cleaning (bathrooms and kitchen, yuck!) a house that sat empty for almost a year, it was move in ready.
Fresh paint, wood blinds, and new carpet included.
In fact the paint color that the bank chose is almost exactly the same yellow as our previous home. Making decorating a snap, and helping make it feel like home immediately. The only thing we have invested in, are a few new rugs. All the rest easily found a home
Dry bar turned therapy/craft closet. Not crazy about all the glass, I could organize better with something different, but it's fine for now. I'll have fun cruising pinterest for ideas.
Of course every homeschool family proudly displays their bazillion books! Don't they?
Little nook leading the Master. Our wedding sampler made by my Mom found a pretty little home here. I smile every time I walk by.
The kitchen...I'd show you more, but it's a mess! Same goes for the upstairs. I'll have to save that for another day, when it's clean. In 2020, perhaps.
We are dealing with water that has a very high iron content. I don't really want a water softener, thinking more along the lines of a whole house water filtration system/iron removal thingamajigy. Any thoughts? Need to do something soon before all our rust stains have rust stains!
