I wasn't going to blog about this for two reasons:
1. I'm supposed to be finishing the kitchen.
2. You'll tell me what a loser I am for starting another new project because I should be working on my kitchen.
But here it goes.....my mom bought a condo and it's stuck in the 80's.
I can't have her living in a place that's stuck in the 80's.
I'm not sure why this is. It's most likely because I'm a control freak and want to bully her into decorating her home it how I want it to look.
Because it's all about me, I guess.
So I'm going to show you some "before" shots.
Now, these "before" shots aren't really her condo. I didn't take photos before I started because remember when I had my computer problems? All of the software belonging to my camera was knocked out of my computer so now we need to find the software that came with the camera and reload it.
And only Zuddy knows where it is.
Which means it's lost forever in the basement or in his garage. And we will need to get a new camera with new software.
Here are some photos of another condo for sale in my Mom's building. It's very similar to hers. Almost identical.
The living room....it's 15x21:
Another shot of the living room:
See those doors leading to the spare bedroom/office? Aren't they attractive?
The correct answer would be, "No. They are not attractive."
The dining room...it's 10x11:
My Mom's dining room doesn't have that mirrored wall.
But it DOES have a hideous ca.1981 genuine imitation crystal (i.e.plastic) chandelier. Don't worry. I'll somehow get a photo of it for you.
The kitchen....it's 9x11:
Her kitchen is pretty much the same as this one MINUS the tile and PLUS the 1992 wallpaper with ivy all over it.
So anyway....there it is.
Wanna come along with me as I help my Mom update this place before she moves in?
