If you've been reading, you know that I purchased a house last month, August 8th to be exact. It was the result of my roommate moving back to Chicago and the rent in my area being a giant money pit I could no longer afford to play in. So I went house shopping and made an offer on the 2nd one I saw. After all the crazy that's been the past month, I still think I chose the best option I saw. I like the layout, I enjoy the neighborhood, and the location is perfect for me from work. No one could guarantee I would have the same or different issues at another place. This one was the best price for the area to keep the mortgage at an amount I can afford on my church salary.
So I cleaned it that first weekend - just preparing the house to be moved into and it looked like this!
2. The Amazing Kitchen,
4. The Wood / The Tile Floor.
Then I moved in with the help of my amazing friends and stayed the first night in my new house! The following day my friends brought in the best part, my brand new big girl bed!
Then on Thursday evening MG and Mer were coming over to help me official decide between these three colors in my living room.
The one on the far left is the winner - Betsy Ross House Blue! BUT instead we ended up cleaning up sewage that had come up the toilet in the downstairs bathroom. The following day this was more like what my house looked like!
Yeah, that's right - what used to be beautiful was then torn up!
But now the new paint is up, the floors have been delivered, and we are almost ready to go! I even primed my bedroom and am prepared the paint the real colors on tomorrow and Monday!
