Cape Cod for Sale
I was searching local real estate listings and found this little charmer for sale in
Crown Heights, Oklahoma City. Crown Heights is the neighborhood just to the north of me.
A major road separates us...other than that, our neighborhoods are right next to each other.
I love browsing real estate listings, don't you?
The decor in this house I feel doesn't really go with the style of the home.
There are some pieces I like but most of it seems a little cheesy.
I'd love to get my hands on it and restyle it.
I do like that big chesterfield sofa in the living room.
Pretty blue on the walls and I like the chandelier but hate those chairs.
I think the table could work but those chairs are wrong.
Do I see a mirrored buffet? I wish we could see more of it.
Hate that bench too.
Blandsville. I see someone has a dog. See the dog stairs?
I have a ramp at the bed in my own home. They are necessary but really unattractive.
See the black and white photos taped to the wall above the fireplace.
That is straight from the pages of Domino.
I remember seeing that done and loving it. It worked in the Domino room but really doesn't here.
I'm diggin' that mirror as a headboard and the mirrored night stands.
Everything else can go away.
Pretty bathroom but obviously not original and you know how I feel about that.
And lastly, a galley kitchen. I like the door in the kitchen. It brings in lots of light.
How do you feel about the heavily distressed cabinets?
I think I could make this kitchen really sing!
** Dining Room Furniture Painting Update **
I'm almost finished with the buffet now. It WILL be done tomorrow.
I can't paint at night because I don't have enough light to see to do a good job.
And I can't move the furniture out of the dining room to paint because it's too large.
Today I had a big time lunch meeting and then had to run errands so I didn't get
to finish the buffet like I'd planned.
I did paint another coat of paint.
The chairs took 5 coats (2 primer, 3 paint).
I was hoping the buffet would only be 2 and 2 but we'll see.
Then I just have to paint the table and I'll be done.
Anyway....soon I'll be able to start showing something.
I can't wait to get this project out of the way.
