I got some good news back from my realtor. She said the owners have fixed all of the things wrong with the house and are waiting for the hot water heater to be delivered. I will contact the bank today and see how things are going and hopefully they can give me an approximate date when they will have all the paperwork finished. This is so exciting. I can't stop thinking of how I'm going to fix the place up, so here are some ideas I have...
I want to paint the living room all white. I love the crisp white and chocolate browns together. I found some pictures online that I love. (Seems like I found this one on Apartment Therapy) This one has a fireplace similar to mine. I had thought of painting my fireplace white, but I think I like the rustic look of the natural brick instead, so I may just keep it the way it is. My dad said he would build me a mantle out of walnut. That turquoise chandelier looks great, too, but I don't want an exact replica of the room.
In the picture below, it has the woodwork on the walls like my living room, so I will paint mine white the way this one looks. A very rustic feel to it, which I love.
The photo below is my living room, I want to get some custom made shelving put on the wall to the left of the fireplace. Paint walls white, replace carpet with hardwood flooring, put a mantle on fireplace, do something about the flashy brass cover, add all my furniture and photos on walls and viola, the room is transformed. :)
