Find Good In Every Day

One mom's attempt at finding good in every day of this chaotic world.

It’s Official! April 20, 2013

After getting out of the homeowner game for almost 10 months, we’re finally back in it.  We’re back to having debt and weekly projects, and it’s a wonderful feeling!

We are beyond excited about our new home.  We can’t wait to make many memories there with our family, old friends, and new friends.  Having purchased the home from the original owners (and builders), we acquired all the original blueprints, maintenance records,  and even pictures of the home being built.  It’s quite a well-kept place.  We could tell it was very difficult for the mother and daughter to let go of a place in which they had so many memories, but I hope the knowledge of a new young family taking it over gives them some sort of peace that we will continue to love and cherish the house as much as they did.

First things first, though.  We’re not moving for another 5 weeks, and there is much to do to get it ready.  We know we won’t be able to do it all, so our only priorities before we move in are to have Mason and Cooper’s rooms completely done and ready for them as well as update the kitchen a bit with new appliances, countertops and floor.  It is certainly not a small task, especially with all the wallpaper that we need to remove first, but we’re excited to get our hands dirty again and personalize the space.  Like I’ve said before, that kind of thing is our hobby.

I am not going to inundate you with too many photos as there will be before and after posts for each room, but here is a sneak peek of what we’re getting into.

First up - the kitchen!  Original cabinets built by the owner.

Wallpaper galore! And yes, we're keeping the rotary phone.

The living room gets amazing light!  Can't wait to put a Christmas tree in there this winter!

Dining room has the least offensive wallpaper. Our table will fit perfectly.

Just one side of our master bedroom.  It also gets amazing light.  We have no clue what we'll do with this room yet.

This is just one of the cool vintage lights in the house.

The basement is paneled, and they left us some decorative wood pieces and these chairs.  We'll keep one of them - can you guess which?
