THE House

A couple weeks ago I mentioned that we were, at last, going to do an inspection of our (not so) short sale potential house. It went pretty well, all the big stuff (roof, chimney, foundation, etc.) is in good shape.  There are some minor outlet electrical issues and in one of the showers the hot/cold water is reversed. Oh, and the lovely owners didn't bother to put the pool cover on, much less properly winterize it.   

Mostly, the house just needs some major love painting , and cosmetic work.  If Kim can transform a house with holes and graffiti on the walls,  then I can handle funky layouts, strange bathrooms and bad paint colors.  We are moving forward with the house and hope to close at the end of the month.

A few of the "masterpieces" are below.  If you're extremely interested bored check out all 63 poorly taken, with1 one room missing, inspection photos click HERE.

Get ready for lots of " I need your feedback on this______________ (insert- paint color, art work, mood board, furniture here) pleezzze" posts .

I'm so excited for you! Paint is such an easy fix (but boy oh boy, they loved stripes, didn't they?).

Can't wait to see it all come together!

That's so exciting!! It looks like you guys have some painting ahead of you.. we repainted basically every room in our house. The floors like they are in good condition! When is closing??

Leigh @ Kesler Expressler said...

Congrats, Leigh! Can't wait to see you transform the new place!

They must have just loved stripes! Paint is an easy inexpensive fix!

Kristen @ Miss Prissy Paige said...

Redskins circus tent. Hilarious! Can't wait to see what you do with the place.

They sure liked stripes, didn't they? It will be fun!

I love it Leigh--it has TONS of potential and you will work magic!

So, what's the first project?
