Now the real fun was about to begin. We stayed in the basement apartment for several months while we ripped up old, gross red carpet, took down even grosser and more disgusting wallpaper, sanded and varethaned floors, painted- the list goes on and on. When we finally got it semi-nice looking, we moved upstairs and rented the apartment. Woo Hoo!!!!!!- three incomes. A new homeowners dream. I bought sooooo much furniture and redecorated as much as I could while working a full-time job. We've been hear 15 years now, and most rooms have been decorated at least once, some twice, and some not-at-all (like the basement rec. room). After five years, we stopped renting the apartment, and I made a guest bedroom, art/craft/sewing studio in the old kitchen area, and moved my husbands shaving kit to the basement bathroom. Can you say-" chicky's got her OWN bathroom". We still have to make a nice T.V. /mancave room downstairs, but that will be a future post. Can't wait!!!!!!!
Anyways, along the way I will show you pictures of each room- some before and after if I can find some old pics. As well as any new reno's and crafty/sewing projects I do around here.
And then there's the garden- also a major rehaul over the years. But here are a few pics for you to see the the flavour and theme of my house.
and back of my house. But I don't want to give too much away.......
so you will have to keep reading and stay-tuned for more.
