If you haven’t check in with us lately, we bought a foreclosure, fixer upper house.
Yesterday I told you what we didn’t like about the house….today I have pictures of what we LOVE about the house. Keep in mind no one has lived here for some time. When I took this photo, I was standing in the kitchen doorway. You can see the dining room, where my office will go to the left and the living room in the distance.
This is one of the built ins in the dining room.
This is a closet in the office. The window next to it will have to be closed in as the garage addition will go there.
Most old house are chopped up. This one isn’t. I think that’s why we love it. This view is from the dining room to the office. The upper part of the window is etched glass.
Now here if the opposite. This is from the office to the dining room. My kids insist that the chandelier is going to have to go. What do you think??
This is the stairs. We have sheet rock work to do there…but more wood…
This is from the corner of the parlor looking to the rest of the house.
That right there sold us on the house….Woodwork and hard wood floors…I know it’s beat up but we’re okay with that. Hubby needs another project anyway right??
I’m starting to contemplate paint colors…any suggestions?? I’ll repaint but I kind of like the deep red in the dining room and the color in the parlor. I know some people might suggest white to lighten it all up but I think the darker colors to keep it looking warm is more my style.
I know there will be lots of days when I come back to look at these pictures to remind myself exactly what I love about the house because I know through this fix up there will be days that will make me wonder what was I thinking..and when I do, remind me, it was all because of the woodwork.
