Ok...as promised after much adieu, a few photos from the
inside of our "lovely" 1940's farmhouse.
Caution: you may want to look with an empty stomach
(so you don't throw up)
and an empty bladder so you don't pee your pants laughing!!
First off: the kitchen
The kitchen is painted a lovely "Pepto Bismol"pink with accents of
a muddy red, and a sickly skin tone
color (perhaps created from mixing orange paint with the pink??)
Also, the previous owers were
very...how shall I say this....thrifty (not in the good way!!) of using
spare rolls of wall paper and borders
and decals throughout the entire house!!
The kitchen does have a few cute features such as a built in
breakfast nook (sorry, no photo) and these
awesome cupboards around the stove.
However, the funky decals have GOT to go!!
There is also a cute built in china hutch and we even
got to keep the old rotary phone!!
My kids are in awe of a RINGING phone that is not
just a cell phone ring tone!! LOL
Next up: the main bath
OK...brace yourself for this one!!
Here we have an enormous 1970's wall-to-wall forest mural
(can you imagine?? lol) that just cracks me up.
I remember seeing these in the Sears catalog when I
was a kid and I thought they were so cool (NOT!!)
and now I have one in my BATHROOM!!
Of course it is only better when combined with the bright turquoise vanity,
aqua walls, and 1980's black-n-brass era mirror!!
Dig those faux marble counter tops too!!
And yes...that is my hubby who actually LIKES
the forest in the bathroom!!
Ooops...almost forgot the pink sink, tub, and toilet combo!!
I am thinking an old cast iron clawfoot tub might be more like it!!
We did love the old built in armoire and all the bead board which,
when painted a more subdued color, will be awesome
and very cottage-y!!
I will post some more tomorrow as well as show you the
beautiful fields of gold that surround us here
on the acreage.
Until then...pick yourself up from your laughing fit
and tell me you see potential!! Please!!
