The House Tour: First Floor

As I embark on this crazy job of renovating my grandmother's house, I'm really excited to document it all here on my little blog. First, I thought I'd share some of the before pictures to give you all* a frame of reference as to what exactly I'm working with here. And I must warn you, these are pretty bad. The house has a lot of really beautiful details and plenty of space - but it's a little hard to tell under all the tacky furniture, bad wallpaper, and innumerable tchotchkes. But I can see a lot of potential and am becoming more and more aware of how lucky I am to have an opportunity like this. These pictures were taken about a month ago, so some work has since been done, but these give you an idea of where we first started...

So, needless to say, it's gonna be a lot of work (and I think I have said that already), but I can already see how great it will look. So many more pictures to come!

*I do realize I'm probably talking to myself here...
