Back at home, Will slaved away while we road tripped. This is just a glimpse of the nastiness he's shoveled out of the house. The kitchen had old asbestos linoleum adhered to the hard woods. The muck you see in the bucket was the under side of the linoleum. The underside of that linoleum floor took a lot of soaking, scraping, shoveling, and scrubbing down with bleach, then pine sol, then wet vacuuming. They are in really good shape underneath all of that:) The floors in the rest of the house are a somewhat different story. Dog pee stains everywhere. Refinishing is on the long list of things that cost $$. Will is going to try to tackle it himself.
Ever get so excited about something new, that you don't know where to begin? Well, we can hardly wait to transform the whole inside and outside of the house. Will decided to slap some paint on the outside, even though we should probably tackle the inside first. You can see the new house color in the far left corner. It's almost a chocolate brown. I think it will set the white trim off nicely. We're thinking no shutters, What do you think?
I really want these antique Louis xv dining chairs for the house, but will try to sell a client on these instead. How perfect would a pair of tall antique wing-backs look as the head chairs to accompany eight of these beauties?
Happy Monday ya'll!
