I knew the kitchen sink had leaked around the counter top, but it was a lot worse than I expected. My dad helped me remove the counter so it can be replaced (new ones are still 3+ weeks out) and we were greeted by some amazing grossness. Apologies in advance for these photos!
The cabinet doors are still scattered throughout the house, needing more coats of paint. But the boxes are good to go!
Painted the living room, just in time for everything I own to be moved in.
So glad to see this brown go away.
Paint, paint, paint, paint.
Dining room with one coat of paint – brighter already!
I have bought so much of this paint I can’t even.
Living room, now with lamp!
Photos don’t do it justice, but this light is hilariously huge given the space.
I bought my first house this summer – a 25-year-old half-duplex by a wooded area.
It hasn’t been without its issues – on top of known problems, there’s been a leaky washer, an unsalvageable kitchen counter top, and spots of mould – but through multiple visits to Home Depot and the help of family and friends, it’s slowly coming together.

Housewarming gift from my folks! Helping combat some dampness for the shortterm.
