A blank canvas

I was doing a little happy dance this weekend when we visited our soon-to-be home. Settlement isn't for another 3 weeks, but the previous owners have already vacated so the agent was nice enough to let us in to take some measurements. Here are some snaps I took of the blank canvas we'll be working with...








So much potential! So many ideas! So excited!

For now we are still super busy preparing our existing home for lease. This past weekend we washed down the outside of the house and all the windows, finished building a new railing on our back deck/stairs, steam cleaned the carpets and gave the garden an overhaul. The to do list for next weekend is just as long .... paint the new railings, sand back and repaint some damaged skirting boards, repaint the laundry ceiling after some old water damage and replace a faulty light in the dining room. And don't even mention the packing!

But, at least I have this to look forward to.

We've just had a bad experience with painting trim so for now it stays as is.

I think it would look great as is :)
