If Wallpaper and Gold Fixtures were Cool, I'd be Miles Davis

Because this house is LOADED with that stuff. (And yes, I did just date myself by referencing "Billy Madison".) We finally have an official signed contract on the house we're buying so I feel okay to post pictures. Let's just say, we are PUMPED to get into the house and get started. Let me also say, it has "potential". (So when you see picture after picture of ripped-out flooring, old light fixtures, broken doors, ugly cupboards, and wallpaper galore...remember that. *POTENTIAL*)

Here they are:

The kitchen

The adjoining family room (which we'll be using more as a dining room/family room)

The formal dining room (which we'll be turning into a guest bedroom/office)

The entry way
(yes, that IS the storm door lying on the floor.)

The living room

Master Bedroom
(yes, that's Oliver wearing a mask. Don't ask.)

Kid's bedroom

Downstairs bathroom
(won't that mirror look cool painted red or white or something???)

We can't WAIT to get started replacing, painting, installing flooring...
but this is definitely a long-term project.

Feel free to stop by and see our progress!
(But wear your best work clothes--we'll likely talk you into staying!)

Oh it looks so awesome! We are definitely into seeing the potential! :) Can't wait to see it in person in a few months--I'm sure it will look so different then!
