So, as I went down to visit with my mom and dad this past weekend, we went by the house to check out the latest progress. More painting has been done to cover up the old yellow, purple, and green walls. What the heck were these folks thinking?? Believe me, a lot of the rooms were really messed up with ugly paint and bad decisions.
Now, a lot of it has been covered in simple white Kilz and it just looks so fresh and new. I can see the floors need some love, and I hope we will be able to re-finish those by sanding them down and putting a new coat of stain and varnish on them.
It really is looking good and I can visualize how the house will look with new kitchen cabinets and all of the trim completed. My mom is starting to think about furniture and decor and wants a cottage / farmhouse feel for the house. It definitely has simple roots and we don’t want to make it feel too fussy. We want a light and airy feel and to keep everything pretty minimal.
I’m so excited to see how it all turns out. We will add some simple landscaping around the house, maybe a couple of porch swings out front. I can’t wait to sit on the porch with my mom and dad and the rest of my family, where my grandparents once stood.
