Onto throw back Thursday - House Edition: Front and Back
We bought our house as a short sale. We got lucky and the previous offer was okayed by the bank, and all the t's were crossed and i's dotted, but then their funding fell through, enter us into the equation, we had the same exact offer and they literally crossed out the previous person and wrote our names in.
Our house needed a lot of vision, I mean a LOT. In one spot inside, you could see the following wall colors: Red, Brown, Blue, light purple, dark purple, green, and orange. It was like Rainbow Bright threw up in our house.
That's us 4 years and 5 months ago.
Now when you see that house color behind us, it doesn't look too bad, but let me tell you, it was horrible! It was actually orange. The neighbors called it the pumpkin house.
|We considered painting the roof green for Halloween, for like 1.2 seconds.|
We'll get to the front yard and backyard/pool in another post.
Our first order of business was to paint the house. We got the keys and the very next week we had painters there. The first day of painting, I pull into the driveway and no less then 4 neighbors came out to tell me Thank You for painting the house. Our next door neighbor said that she almost passed her house because she was so used to turning into her driveway next to the orange house. I actually DID pass by our house, oops!
Second order of business was to get water in the pool. Doesn't it already look so much better?
|As soon as the water was added, Mr. had to go swimming, the water was freezing but he said "I worked hard to get this pool, I'm going swimming."|

|The living room, all "moved" in, the movers just left, and let me tell you, we decided to move on one of the hottest days EVER!|
Come back next week, and I'll show you our front and back yards!
