The Fix Up












Ok so I said I would post pictures of what we had to do with granny's house before we could move in. So here it goes.

This is the old Oven


















We put in new light fixtures.
















New Carpet - Notice the awfull green in one room and a dirty blue with golden diamonds in the other.








Bathroom Cabinet








Painted all the walls.
















Depopcorned the ceiling.





Retexture the ceiling and walls in some rooms.








Redrywall the front entry - the wallpaper that was on the walls was fuzzy green paisley. not something I was really fond of.
The new front entry wall.
Lucky for us my brother in law knows how to drywall.








We had to dissinfect everything!!!
I'm glad that that is over. I hope to never have to do as much work on a house as we did on grannys. The house is great now. It fits our little family well.

That fuzzy green wall paper is too funny! It's great when you finally get the big projects finished. Congrats on a new home!

You guys are hard workers! I bet your house looks great and feels even better, knowing that you put so much work into it.

Matt; I recognize the house and it was overdue for a remodel! It needed it when Grandma moved in over 20 years ago.
It's great to see you and your family. I found you on Redge's blog.
