My best ideas are always the stolen ones. I thought I’d do a retrospective of the old house. Photos enhanced using Google magic to make it look more sentimental.
The front of the house. When I bought it, it was a pale yellow colour. My dad had decided to repaint it an even nastier colour.
The kitchen with the awful orange and melamine cupboards, before the renovation, which were unusually low, even for me. The window was nice though, and brought a nice light into the room.
Kitchen part 2. View of the stove area. The cupboards looking even more hideous here.
The bathroom was renovated immediately after purchase, didn’t get a before photo. Just replaced the vanity and tiles.
Lounge room. I had grand plans for this room, envisaging some sort of boudoir-type look, but the revamp never really got off the ground.
Bedroom. I still love that chandelier and it’s going in my “lady cave” in the new place. I’m still also trying to sell the wardrobe.
Back yard. It was a riot of weeds that refused to die. The birds loved the bottlebrush though.
Despite the general crappiness of the back yard, we made good use of it during summer evenings and would often sit outside with a glass or two, reading, playing games, or contemplating life.
So that’s the old place, bring on the new one!
