We Wilkersons have been keeping a smidgen of a secret from you. Want to know what it is? The floor is now open for your best guess.
Preggers?…nice try (My Gran has her fingers crossed that this would be the case. Not yet, Granimal!)
New pet?…We wish!
Give up? Alright, we’ll divulge.
Meet our secret…
s right. We’re on the move! Isn’t she lovely? We could just get lost in all this 1950s rancher has to offer. Do remember that we Wilkersons are lovers of a good charity case, hence the Rehabilitation Station. With that said, let’s get crackin’ on the first of several mini “before” home tours.
We’ll start with the front of the house: the living & dining rooms. As the daughter of an architect, I know my drawings aren’t quite up to par, but it’s all I‘ve got people…
Everywhere you see carpet, the original hardwoods are sneakily hidden underneath. To our hardwood loving hearts, this was a huge selling point and they will be uncovered and shined up pronto! Want a sneak peak of the beauty buried underneath? Alright, you twisted my arm you sneaky thing, you…
I just know the angels sang to you as they did for us upon this discovery.
Next up, the dining room…
Your eyes are not mistaking you. That is a gigantic wallpaper plantation scene sprawling across the dining room wall. I half expected Scarlet to come storming out of the kitchen demanding to see Ashley. If you haven’t seen Gone With the Wind, shame on you. Block out four hours of your Friday night and make it happen.
That’s all for today folks! More to come tomorrow for sure, and you can sleep soundly tonight knowing that we’ve already starting tackling our new giant of a project.
PS…Eric sends a big howdy your way. He’s just a bit busy tackling the Grandma curtains hanging in the window.
