♥ SOLD American! ♥
At long last! Finally a sold sign was slapped on the house. We did our final walkthrough to day and I took a massive amount of pictures that I’ll be sharing with you over the course of this coming week. Today I’m featuring four pictures including this SOLD sign! It was great to be able to get back into the house and really study the space. I have so many plans! I’m very excited about the moving process and getting settled in. Our back yard is very small but that’s perfect for us as it will be easy to maintain and landscape. Here’s a photo of the side gate to the back yard. You can’t enter from the front as the gate locks from the backside which is fenced in so we’ll always be secure!
A few pots of flowers will really brighten up the area along with some hanging plants and or some outdoor art on the fencing, not to mention a good scrubbing with some water to help get rid of the “green” that’s taken hold since the home has been vacant. It’s a simple fix that a bucket of water and hefty scrub brush will solve inside of half an hour! I love the privacy factor that each home has a fenced in backyard that’s completely private for each homeowner. I’m looking forward to dreaming up some sort of oasis for the future.
No man is an island but many kitchens have them! This is mine! The back side of the island has counter top that overhangs to create a “bar” to sit at. I just happen to have 2 barstools in storage so we’re good to go with that! Eventually we’ll also get a small bistro style table for near the window and it will be come a bit more cozy and welcoming. The kitchen has a lot of counter space and is promises to be fun and functional for working in… there’s room for more than one person and plenty of elbow room which beats what we have now which is a one person workspace.
Thank God to who ever it was that decided to finally build in microwaves above the stove! They allow for FAR more counter space to work with and that is always a huge plus! Now I can put some of my pretty cobalt blue glassware out on the counter and enjoy more of my treasured items without feeling like I’m compromising my work space.
I’ll have more pictures up tomorrow from more of the kitchen, bathrooms, bedrooms, and the entrance way. I also bought a bed today that I’ll share this coming week. I’m SUPER excited about delivery/moving day! We have one of the busiest weeks of our life ahead of us. Keep us in your prayers and keep coming back to see all the “before” pictures… as I’m going to share my artistic decorative ideas with you as they come to fruition!
