Our First Home DIY — Don’t Laugh
Welcome home! Or at least, welcome to our first home DIY. Let me take you on a tour of the first house we purchased in 2006. A little back story…We were quickly outgrowing our tiny rental since I was pregnant with our first son. We wanted to get in to the housing market before we were completely priced out so we purchased this beauty 3 months before my due date. It took a LOT of imagination to see the potential of this house. A lot.
I mean, really…look at that awful kitchen. Not one positive thing to note other than the amount of space. Florescent lighting, bulkhead ceiling, wood countertops, cabinets from the 70s. Yikes. We knew that it would entail a lot of work. But, it was all we could afford. And we were young. And
The kitchen was also the dining area. With beautiful built-in corner cabinets. Okay, not beautiful at all. Truly ugly actually, and they took up too much space.
I think the bathroom was made for extremely short people because it barely even come up to our mid-thighs. Sitting on the toilet I felt like I was sitting on the floor…impossible for someone hugely pregnant!
So, as you can see, we had our work cut out for us with our first home DIY. Stay tuned for part 2
