We marked our one year anniversary in the house at the beginning of April. Things have come a long way since then, and while there is much to do (that will probably always be the case…) I’m so happy with how things have progressed. This place needed a lot of love–“fixer upper” just scratches the surface. When I went back to photos to find a “before” picture I was reminded of how dirty, grimy, neglected, dirty, and dirty the house when we first saw it. Currently trying to re-forget all of that again. *Shudder*
Fresh paint across the whole interior was the first big step in making this place livable again. We didn’t need to purchase any furniture for the guest bedroom thanks to inheriting an old bedroom set from my parents and the dresser from Russ’s parents. I repainted the dresser and added new knobs. In came bedding, wall art, decor, and voila!
