Holy!

So I've been terribly busy buying a NEW CONDO!!


Well actually it's not a new condo. The building was built in 1975 and is a bit of a time capsule as you'll see from the photos *laugh* A friend commented that it looks like we're moving into an old folks home but it has great bones and we're very excited to put our own stamp on things.

So here we have our wee little balcony. Not big, but big enough for the 2 of us to sit in the evenings and drink a chilled glass of bubbly water and watch the sun go down.


We get late afternoon sun and is a corner suite so the place feels really light and airy.
This is the 2nd bedroom which we will be turning into our bedroom. It's nice and little and will be a perfect little cave for sleeping. We like a small dark room to sleep in... This is the crazy huge master bedroom which I am turning into the photo studio/office.

There are 2 bathrooms and they both look like this. Circa 1975. So hilarious. I can't wait to get all DIY construction in here!!Lastly the most important room of the place. The Kitchen. It looks like the 1970's threw up in here... luckily the appliances are fairly new and not avocado green. :)

Please note the suspended florescent light ceiling. That will be the first thing to go. Then the tiles. Then the floor. Then some much needed paint on those cabinets...
The kitchen is a great size with lots of counter space for me to work in. It's gonna be fun turning this kitchen into my dream kitchen. I can't wait.

I'll post more photos as we start the renos. I can't believe I'm excited to start painting... *laugh* Didn't I say I'd never paint again?
