Last weekend as I was procrastinating studying and landscaping in the front, a neighbor walked by and complimented me on how the house was coming along. I told her thanks, but it felt like it was moving pretty slow. She said, Well gosh, just think about what it looked like a year ago. And I told her I couldn't bear to!
Then her daughter asked to pet Tuna, who has a fear of children after being chased by my 2 nephews (who are actually really nice to cats). Anyway, as I was trying to catch Tuna and hold her so the girl could pet her, (with no success, she just clawed my chest and ran for the hills) I started thinking about what the house indeed did look like one year ago.... Then I got the chills and shivers so bad that the poor neighbor lady grabbed her child and fled yelling "I knew there had to be druggies still living here! (Just joking.)
Ah, the curb appeal!
Backyard, much less scary!
Old back "porch" and bathroom on that porch!
All demo'd and rebuilt and ready for screening-in!
Living room minus all the weird "antiques".
Parlor all freshened up!
Kitchen, even during remodel is better than the before!
Sewing room with my new paint effect. (Hey, at least I like it!)
Bathroom with NO HOLES IN THE FLOOR!
Phew, see I don't feel so bad anymore! I should try to take pictures in the exact same locations as the before so we get the full effect.
