It might be a “new” house for us, but let me tell you – there are so hilariously weird things about the new place. I wish I had words, but I don’t, so I’ll do what I do best – show you some pictures.
What’s the fun of one color or carpet? Okay, cool, and let’s do tile in one room, and laminate in another, and how about sheet vinyl in the bathrooms?! Good? Gooooood!!!
Yes, it’s stuck that way. No problem. We’ll just hang from the ceiling to shower.
Since they couldn’t fit more than 2 colors of carpet in, they decided to give the room real stylish
punch in the face pop of color with a good fan, you know?
So, as you can imagine. As much as I love and adore this house, I was kinda getting big plans to just rip stuff out and start over. Because it needs it. Of course, right?
Except it doesn’t.
Yes, some of it is ugly and old. But, simply put, it’s a roof that keeps us dry, and walls that keep us warm, and has a safety screen I can double dead bolt at night to keep out the murderers. More than most people will ever have. And I have a grip of weddings right in a row that need my full attention over a house.
So we are going to do something extremely stupid.
We are going to move without replacing the epileptic seizure fan (imagine that thing spinning?!). Or the vinyl, which looks pretty permanently glued anyway. Or the carpet inlaid in the tile aka built in rug? Really, it exists in this house, I do not kid.
We will be armed with bleach, gloves & our carpet steamer.
Will we live in it like this forever? No. We will work on it room by room, day by day, and have fun doing it!
We only have two weeks left until closing!! (Then you’ll get some real pictures of the cute old things that made us fall in love with this house, I promise!)
