Thought I'd post a blog about something I'm most passionate about, Vintage furniture and home makeovers ( hopefully theres some nerdy antique collectors out there like myself!) .
I always seem to be in homes that have some original charm... but the some disastrous modern additions.
My previous home in Minnesota I completely re-hauled!!! It was a total frankenstein house. But with enough paint, sparkle, and old junk it ended up pretty nice. ( If you want, I'll post some photos!)
Now, I am new here in California. Got a house in Burbank, just a mile from the shop! Only been there two months but I have been busted my but getting this early 50's home its charm back. Kitchen cabinets, part of the bathroom tile are original and it had the original wood floors... that were covered with disgusting carpet! Those were the first to go! A wood paneled den was added in the 1960s ( which I actually ADORE even though some think is tacky, I think it's fun and kinda funny) but in this room it had disgusting carpet with even grosses tile underneath.
Here's a picture of the before and after that myself and my boyfriend Huy did ( that's right, I can do laborious work, too!)
