We let my brother and his partner use the condo for the week. Meanwhile my sister was in the area visiting a friend so they all happened upon our place whilst we braved a Halloween snowstorm at home.
I tried to match up some before pictures to contrast with the new...
|Before: View from Kitchen into Dining Area|
|After: New Dining Area|
|Before: Floor to Glass Walls! Ugh! (w. brother, JC and realtor in porch area)|
|After: New Carpet...no more mirrors!|
|After: New Living Room Set|
|My New Favorite Painting|
I picked up this painting above for literally next to nothing. It's called the Open Road. Someone was selling it at the Salvation Army, of all places. I got it for three bucks. I fell in love with it the minute I saw it. I just love the bluish-purple sky. We had it framed and it looks like a million bucks.
Here's another one (below) that we also got on the same trip, just as cheap. It's a Van Gogh knock off but I still like it.
|Starry Nights Like|
|And Into the New Boudoir|
Remember, I'm all about being frugal. This bedroom set above is solid wood, weighs a ton and, in my opinion, looks very expensive. I spent $350 for the whole set. My new neighbor was selling it.
|Before: Master Bath Area w. Stained (Ugh!) Rug, Decorative Wallpaper and More!|
|After: New Tile, Fresh paint and Wainscoting|
Alright, that's enough. You asked so I'm sharing. Hope you enjoyed.
