Are you really ready?
OK, well, don't say you weren't warned...
Oh - and please note, this is not our furniture! These are the photos from when the house was on the market!
|How lovely: peach curtains with matching peach architraves, mission brown doors and window frames, yellow glass sliding door (we got rid of that door before we even moved our things in!) and dirty old carpet.|
|Wasn't the kitchen bright and beautiful? Mission brown cupboards, pink benchtops, lacy curtains and brown lino; just what I always dreamed of.|
|Anyone guess which era this house was built in? Lovely 70s archway, yellow light shades and a skylight right next to the window (made extra useful by the fact that it leaked).|
|Um, what can I say?? This was the spare room - and yes, that was bright blue sponging all over the walls.|
Now for some more recent shots:
|Some renovations in 2004 - redoing the kitchen (I know you're asking why; it was perfect just the way it was!), the carpet ripped up (these beautiful boards were underneath it the whole time) and squaring off that archway.|
|The kitchen just after it was done (not fully complete yet, but you can see the patch in the ceiling where we knocked down a wall to open it up)|
More recent shots to come - soon I'll show you what it's like now, while theses renovations are happening! (Another warning - those photos will contain a lot of mess.)
