I moved the Flamingo Inn out into the dining room yesterday. I'm still cleaning and re-arranging my work room. I'm taking everything out and starting over! It's a big job but someone has to do it! :D
I took some before photos of the house so you can see what a big project it will be! I got the house on Craigslist for $45. It was all white with dark green shutters. I decided it wanted to be pink. So far I've just tried different shades of pink to get the right shade. The trim you see is for adding a second floor porch and outside staircase.
I've already started bashing this house! I couldn't resist doing something to it. I took down the stairs. They are covered with nasty green carpet. Add that to the list of things to do. Later.
You can see the interior with the previous owner's choice of colors. That will change. I do like the floors. They just need some polishing.
This is what the top of the house looked like. It seemed like there was wasted space here.
I removed the wooden triangle so I could see what was behind it. Not an easy task! This house is nailed together! I was sad to see that there is not much space in the attic. Not sure what I can do with that space?
I may have to reconsider my plans for this house? I really wanted it to become a bed and breakfast. I'm afraid it is only large enough for a single family house.
I moped around all evening since I had my heart set on that idea. I fell asleep thinking about what else it could be?
Well. I woke up this morning with another idea! How about a seafood restaurant with a bar and gift shop upstairs? I'll have to ponder that for a while. The possibilities seem endless!
Now I'm not sure where I'm going to use my two new beds? A third house maybe? :D
Hope you have a beautiful day. It's back to cleaning and sorting for me! Of course I'll be thinking about what to do with that pink house out in the dining room...
