Another Idea Post for Perry

Yes. I’m obsessed. What can I say?

If you have no idea what I’m talking about- this is the house we would like to purchase.


more on that here.

So far I’ve talked a little about the entryway and a tiny bit about the kitchen and dining room.

The room that adjoins with the dining room is this room-


(sorry, the renters had started moving their stuff in)

It has A LOT of built-ins. Which is strange for a living/family room.


It also has this weird/ugly, electric, fake-looking fireplace. I don’t think that is staying. Neither is that globe light hanging in the corner.

The stairs are located in this room, tucked away by the sliders.



Here are some of my ideas-

- Prime and paint all the paneling

- Prime and paint all the woodwork

- Continue the wood floors from dining room

- Maybe try to keep some of the built-ins (painted, of course) and remove the doors up top to have some open shelving. Not sure how I feel about that yet.

- Run the wood flooring up the stairs

- Open up the stairs (on one wall) and put in a bannister (if even structurally possible)

- Move sliders in place of the windows on the end of the room and build a deck. (turn old sliders into a wall)

Of course, these are some long-term goals. They are how I see the house looking after a long period of time. These aren’t changes that I plan to make before we move into the place or anything like that.

What do you think? See anything I should reconsider or change? Can you see the improvements in your mind?

I do, and it will be awesome.

I see a lot of painting in my future. Lots of white paint.

Tomorrow will be about a Pinterest project I attempted this weekend. Stay tuned!

  1. I think the built-in will look great painted and with some doors removed. I love that look.
