A blank slate

Here is the house that we purchased.


I swore that I would never own a house without character….and what do I buy?  A split entry house from the 70’s.  I drove past this house without my mister and decided that we should go to the open house that weekend.  The house is outside city limits, had a giant fenced in side yard (perfect for our mongrels), and best of all….is blue.

Kitchen shot…isn’t that wallpaper border just awesome??

Family Room

This photo shows the family room downstairs.  There is a matching spare bedroom.  Unlike the upstairs the paint and carpet had not been replaced.  Can you say scary????  I wish the faux finish could be accurately reflected in these….its a lavender and mauve combo.

When I first drove by this house I was skeptical, but it was empty at the time and we needed a house fast….more on that later.  I talked my mister into going to the open house that weekend and he was won over by the large side yard, new paint, stove and hot tub.  Did I forget to mention there is a hot tub….yeah….there is and we love it.
