Final Pictures from the Rental Property!

The Hubby and I are determined to set ourselves up for the future. Times have changed and raises are hard to come by now. We want to plan for our future, which requires some effort and planning on our parts. We set a goal to have a rental as one of our future investments. Now we can check this off our list.

We are officially done with the rental property....well I say officially, but we still have a few things left to do, but our renter moves in tomorrow. The other changes can wait.

This has been a long journey. I feel like the house now reflects the potential we saw in it.



When you walk in the front door, you enter the living room. A reminder to what the house was before: smelly, dark, musty, and dirty. No we went for modern, fresh and clean.



Once you are in the living room, you will see the connecting dinning room. You still had the dirty carpet and dark paint.



Once you are in the dinning room, you can walk directly into the kitchen. The kitchen had old wall paper border on the walls. The walls were caked with dirt and grease. I feel like now we have a bright kitchen, that you would actually want to cook in.



The back entry was very small, but we painted the walls, pantry and also laid a new floor. 


This house has one bathroom. It is small but useful. The before pictures do not do it justice. It was disgusting. I also believe that the wall paper border was super glued on. Never will I ever put up a wall paper border!!!



This house had two bedrooms. They were both a good size. We just needed to clean them both up with new refinished floors and new paint.



The second bedroom is a little smaller, but it got the same treatment! 


One of the biggest changes was the flooring. We ripped up the carpet and chose to refinish the hardwood floors. It was a great decision. If we refinish hardwood floors again, I don't think I would go so dark, but I love the concept.


We are so happy with the results. I think we did a great job overall. It's hard to believe it is the same property. 

Hopefully you enjoy the results as well!

Until next time,

Kara
