I loved this house when I bought it last year. It has what you would call, “good bones.” There is a ton of natural light, lots of room for kids, huge yard, space for a sewing room (my #1 priority, just kidding, well, only kind of), and high ceilings (which I love). What I didn’t love about it was the very 80’s fixtures and décor. It was built in the eighties so there is a lot of white with dark trim. There is also a lot of brass. I’ve decided I’m going to tackle some of these “design opportunities” this summer. My first job is the kids’ bathroom. It’s decent enough. It’s the standard Honey Oak cabinets, cream Formica and almond tub, toilet, and sink. I’m leaving the almond stuff because it’s not that bad and it’s all in really good shape. Mind you, the whole house is in really good shape. It’s just very dated. I’m going to make it a bit more fun by painting it a bright color and resurfacing the cabinets. It’s a tiny bathroom so the work should be done soon. Ha! But anyway, this is a long post when I could just say something short like, “This is why I haven’t sewn much lately.” Wow, verbose much Dawn?
Have you seen a worse light in a bathroom? Ewwwwww. I kid you not, this isn’t even a bad light in this house. There are a bunch of nipple lights and some crazy-ass lantern lights in some of the rooms.
