It's almost done--I spent about five hours scrubbing the linoleum with a wire brush today. I need pulls for the drawers and the faucet will have to be replaced, eventually. I also want to look for a drop-leaf empire table to put under the shelves so I can eat breakfast there. All the rooms are painted now--I'll be posting more pictures this week. I'm starting on painting the outside of the house tomorrow morning.

Okay, I, along with my wonderful parents, have been working like mad to get this house in order. Things were not so great when I got here--dirty, dirty, dirty. The previous occupant also left nasty detritus everywhere. It's been a non-stop work marathon since I got the keys last Wednesday afternoon. My parents left this afternoon, and these are the results thus far. I'm also posting some "before" pictures. The red room is my family room (Esme and me!). The charcoal gray is the living room, which opens to the dining room.
