As many of you know, lately we’ve been looking at houses for sale and last week we put an offer on one beautiful row house in the Near Northeast/Old City area. Our initial offer was accepted and so we’re moving forward with paperwork, inspections, and great amounts of excitement! And, wow, at the risk of jinxing ourselves, is this first-time homebuyer experience starting off wayyy too easy?
So anyways, I’ve been thinking about paint colors for the living room, gigantic kitchen, 2.5 baths, and 3 bedrooms that are soon to become ours. What do you all think of this yellow door color? Too much?! Maybe just a little… More seriously though, I am digging these wall stencils from Cutting Edge Stencils. I’m definitely thinking we should do something a little bold with at least one of the rooms.
But all that will come with time. Moving in and customizing is going to be a fun task, though overwhelming to think about at the moment. It will definitely be a piece-by-piece project, but that’s part of the reason we chose to buy a place that has room for fixing up as we go but is still totally livable right now.
Anyone have advice for first-time homebuyers?
