I will eventually paint the outside a nice sagey green and probably get a natural wood looking door with some stained glass...
We're also going to be doing some hardcore landscaping in the front and back yard this summer. I will post photos as I go : )
Here's the rustic fireplace and hardwoods with built in sconces and awesome windows (the whole house is just full of light!). You can see a slight glimpse of our decent sized porch out of the right window. Unfortunately I think we will need to rebuild the porch sometime...It's sturdy enough for now, but it doesn't have a ton of life left in it.
This is the window right as you walk in the front door. There's a pretty cool old school looking chandelier there and awesome built ins. Time to get some fancy show off wine glasses : )
I don't have any photos I can post of the kitchen the bedrooms or the back yard unfortunately. I forgot my digital when I went and saw it again (we don't move in until March), so I bought a throw away camera and my scanner is packed already.
The back yard is going to be a huge amount of work, but it'll be so much fun. It needs a fence and landscaping badly. There's a veggie garden built in, but I don't like the layout so I'm going to rip it out. There's also a clothes line *cemented* into the ground. That'll be a fun one to remove. I get the feeling we'll be replanting new grass at some point...
The two downstairs bedrooms are modest in size, probably 10x10. The upstairs bedroom has vaulted ceilings and is probably 10x20. Giant windows in all the bedrooms!
The kitchen is probably as old as the rest of the house...eep! Because it's so expensive to put in new cabinetry, for now we are going to paint the cabinets dark green and put on knobs shaped like leaves. That'll be good. There is a big window above the kitchen sink with shelving built off to the sides that will be perfect for plants. I'm excited!
Stay posted for pics of our progress. It'll probably be at least a good month before I can post anything good, but I'll be back!!!
Also- it's my baby's 1st birthday soon! Just an early warning. there will be photos by May ;)
