1920s Fixer Upper

I have very exciting news to share with all of you. Over the weekend, I took on the project of restoring a rental home that my significant other and I will be living in. The best part is that we get to (mostly) decide what goes on since we’re doing the work. So far, the wall colors have been decided and we have already started on painting. The catch is that we have 25 days until we have to move out of our old apartment and into our new home! That means most of the interior work has to be completed before the last few days in June so that we can have a few days to move in the majority of our items. Yikes! What a time crunch!

All in all, that’s okay as we decided what absolutely needs to be done before the move.

-10 rooms patched and painted

-flooring for the upstairs

-the kitchen ceiling and floor needs to be done

That doesn’t look too bad on screen. However, the tenant before us did quite the load of damage to the walls where simple spackle cannot patch up. That being said, some major drywall fixes need to happen. We had to push back any exterior work until we’re moved in July as the siding, porch, and landscaping all needs some love. We made some progress this weekend with painting the walls in a few “colorful” rooms. 

All of this is quite exciting and feels like I’m in a HGTV show. I’m in love with this house and all the niches it has! In all due time, I know we can bring out the potential in this beautiful home and give it a whole new life. I’ll give weekly updates before showing off the final project! Stay tuned!
