Brakes and I are closing on our lovgly (lovely/ugly) little rancher today! I would love to post a pic of the front, but it is sooo ugly that it wouldn’t be difficult to find if you searched the recently sold list in Northern California. Brakes is certain we have stalkers (I told him not to flatter himself) but I like to try to respect his wishes (occasionally). As soon as we disguise it with a coat of paint and perhaps some yard art (fall decor?) I’ll post our “after”. Until then feast your eyes on what I’ll be doing for probably the next 24 hours strait:
(please note that these are pictures from the appraisal, with the seller’s stuff, though I would not cry if he left the fancy-pants potty lid.)
Is it strange that I am super excited to get my hands dirty (I know all you sage old renovators are rolling your eyes at my naivety and enthusiasm)?
Wish us luck!
PS: Can I please take a moment to thank my amazing husband who guided us down this path frugally and thoughtfully at every turn? Its true I may have wanted to punch his lights out a time or two, but my Bargain Man got us exactly the house we wanted at the price we wanted! I am so proud of (and in love with) you, B!
