¡La Casita!

This is our new place.  It's a condo close to work and family (well, not all of our family, but most. :)) and we love that it's not perfect.  We're going to do a lot of work on it over the summer which includes (hopefully) the following projects:  New kitchen cabinets and counters, paint everywhere, update vanities and mirrors in the bathrooms, laminate flooring downstairs, new cadet heaters and thermostats, 6 panel doors and possibly new moulding, and we're going to get rid of the space ship in my living room! The rocks will go as well since someday we'll have a little one and even though Shem thinks it would be funny I really don't want my child eatting rocks from my living room. :)  We're also going to completely open upthe kitchen to the living area and put in some track lighting.  We have big plans and hopefully we'll be able to make our budget stretch!  Don't mind the mess.  I was going to clean everything up perfectly, but I figured that I would never get this post up then.  Oh, and the room with the big blue bins, that our 2nd bedroom which is currently our storage room.  Everything is still a work in progress.  Also, notice the missing drawer in the kitchen?  Before we un-packed I had to fix most of the runners just so that the drawers wouldn't fall down when you opened them.  This place is totally from the 70's though!

Cute condo! The cabinets remind me of the old ones in the living center!

Are you planning to replace the cabinets in the kitchen? They look like they have good bones and could be sanded and painted... The most interesting to me is the stairway - how do you change that light bulb and how did you put anything in that cubby space?

The cabinents have a veneer on the outside, so we can't sand it down and repaint very easily, but we'll see. We still haven't figred out how to change the bulb in the stairwell, and Shem is blessed with some height, so he managed to pu the christmas things in the cubby. It's all temporary now and after we re-model this summer hopefully I"ll find a better place for everything. :)
