New House – The Ugly
Wowzers, what a week huh. As I sit here in a quiet house I am hopeful and prayerful that this coming week will be a little less eventful than the last one.
On the home front, we are still progressing with the sale, a little bit slowly but that’s okay. Slow and steady wins the race? So here’s the last installment of my new house tour. I’ve covered the good and the bad which just leaves – the ugly. Gotta love the ugly stuff – these are the parts that are most rewarding to fix.
At the top of my ‘ugly’ list are the light fixtures rather prominently hanging from the ceiling in the kitchen/laundry/dining/living room. Yeah not so much love for them. They will likely be changed out if we do take possession of the place.
With what? I have no idea. Something cool, maybe a bit industrial, big glass globes. I read somewhere that when you live with little kids, you should have fun with the light fixtures because its the one thing they can’t easily destroy. I totally get that.
What about this old beast? There’s nothing pretty about a woodburning stove. However, it might be useful. I’ve never lived with one so I will at least give her one winter to prove her value before yanking her out.
And finally, considering the overall aesthetic everywhere else, the ceiling fan situation out on the otherwise lovely screen porch is quite… unexpected.
Meet Crazy-Multi-Colored-Fan-#1 and its hard-partyin’ cousin Crazy-Pastel-Multi-Colored-Fan-#2.
These two are currently hanging out right next to each other. If I have my say, they will accompany each other right out the back door together, never to return again. And until they go, I will keep them on at full speed so the rainbow of colors is blurred beyond recognition.
Wishing you all a peaceful week! I promise to blog about something besides moving next.
