Finally, after 1 week and half of scrubbing, washing, painting, repairing and changing fixtures, blinds and more, the dump we purchased looks like some place I could live in! We had to paint every single squared inch of the house: ceillings, walls, baseboard… But it worth it!
Luckily, my father and his girlfriend helped out a lot, now the only thing we have left to do is to deep clean the kitchen cabinets and windows prior we move our furniture in!
During the past week, we also had the floors sanded and varnished. This was a major change in the overall look of the kitchen, living room and master bedroom. The pictures below are after the paint project in these 3 main areas. The left side of each picture is before sanding and the right side is after sanding. I can’t believe how yellow the floor turned over the years!
In the beginning, I wasn’t sure I wanted to spend on this, I thought the floor looked just fine, but seeing the “after” makes me grateful we did hired someone to do it!
