It's official! We have finally moved back to California and we own our own place! It is SO exciting to think that this little two bedroom place is ours, all ours!! We think this house and land has SO much potential! We plan to add a second story, connect the breezeway to the garage, remodel the entire kitchen and blow out some walls to make the living room more open concept. Of course, this is in our 5-10 year plan but it is the plan! I cannot wait!
Though, want to know what I am the most excited for? Putting cedar shakes on this bad boy! I have always loved the homes in Nantucket and would LOVE to make this little house our "Nantucket cottage".....in California. Haha! We live in a coastal town so I think it will work!
We haven't been able to do much yet, to be honest, we haven't even finished painting the living room, BUT I was at least able to paint the mantel. Thank goodness! It was an aged oak finish and I painted it "Dove White" by BM. LOVE it! (I'll see if I can dig up a "before" picture somewhere.)
I am SO excited to slowly start making this place our own. I will take pictures of the rest of the house to give you the whole tour and keep you updated when I start making some fun changes!
