Hey! So, I'm not sure if anyone is interested in all of this but we moved into a 4 bedroom house a few weeks back and it was a shit hole. Sorry to be blunt but it just WAS. Holy moly! My uncle rented it out to 5 different people who NEVER paid the rent so he had to evict them. He didn't think it was THAT bad and told me he'd hire people to clean it. Well the people he hired were scum...like begging him to help them out because they were broke yadda yadda. And he just can't say no...and he can't, he's literally too nice.
Anyway...we moved in and I cried. But then I got into whip this place into shape mode and started hacking away. We didn't have to pay a security deposit so I decided I would purchase new carpet for a few of the rooms. There was a vanity that was tore up, so I found some wallpaper and make-shifted a whole new desk. I needed to use the one coat closet for a catbox, since we're sharing a house with my best friend and her two kids so we made a coat rack and got some shelves for SEVEN dollars. Home Depot had them all and they're discontinued so they were 7 bucks. Yep! ( BeforeCollapse )( After!Collapse )
So then I did some little things after that and I wish I had a before picture but I don't. The before was just a blank wall.( Coats and CubbiesCollapse )
Then I did this last night, was a little frustrating but overall it worked out. If I was not a renter I would have torn this entire thing out. Since I am...I'm covering it in wallpaper. hahahahaha. <--evil laugh. ( Nasty VanityCollapse )
