Recently, I told you all about Grandma Eleanor, my hubby's almost 90-year old grandmother. She is a character. And I mentioned that she has a little house that is going to be put up for sale soon. After it gets cleaned out. That might take awhile. His sister has moved out of there to another place and so we've been over there a few times to check it out. It's just a small cottage, 2 bedrooms, 1 bath, full basement. The sister is still cleaning out this week in fact. And now it falls to my hubby to get the place fixed up and ready to sell for grandma Eleanor. This is the house that Eleanor was going to paint herself. With the Tangerine Dream paint she bought at Lowes, that got remixed. So, fixing it up very soon will be the first order of business. Clean out the rest of the junk that's left, get someone in to clean the place floor to ceiling AND hire painters to come in and paint, inside and out. Quite a job!
The backyard is really cute, needs some work, but could be a nice place.
We'll go inside for a minute. This is the livingroom. Lots of junk still left in here. We're hoping most of this is gone by the end of this week. Tiny kitchen
Fireplace in the livingroom. The walls in here are plaster. That's not going to be fun to fix. Thank goodness, we are not going to tackle it ourselves. Grandma will hire it out with my hubby being the supervisor.
Like this bird bath, I really wanted a birdbath, now I have one.
And I scored another teacart. Bigger than my other teacart, this will be good for outdoor parties. It's already home in my backyard.
This is a piece of marble that fits nicely on my little plant stand for a side table, it's very thick & heavy.
And the baker's rack....can't decide if I should just keep the rack and teacart black and rusty OR paint them a yummy aqua color? I'll be using these for serving when we have outdoor gatherings. I'm thinking AQUA for a pop of color out here and there's aqua in my fabric. What do you think?
My hubby rolled his eyes when I asked him to go over there with me and drag this stuff home. I couldn't let it go to waste. He said, why do you want that rusty old thing? He should know me better than that. The basement was packed full of stuff, not sure what is left. He has forbidden me to bring home anything from the basement for fear of mold.
