We bought a home!


We just bought this house! We close on December 19th and we are SOOOOO SO SO excited! It's a little bit of a fixer upper so we are excited to get our hands dirty and make it ours! I never knew walking down the aisles of Home Depot could be so fun. Just looking at paint colors, hardware for cabinets, carpet and flooring and so much more! I love it and I can't wait to have the satisfaction of doing it ourselves. As you can see the front needs a good paint job! We are thinking tan with black shutters. Any suggestions or ideas??
It's a 3 bedroom (with unfinished bonus room) and 2 1/2 baths an unfinished basement and a 3rd garage around back for a boat or something else (which we won't have for a LONG time! ha ha ) It has a cute deck out back and it has a real fireplace. Our other house has a gas one and I didn't really like it... It barely gives off any heat and it cost so much to run it! So I am excited for a toasty real wood fireplace. I will take before and after pictures once we move in. But I can't wait to get going on that baby room! I want to decorate and make it cute! So any ideas or sites please send them my way! Oh and if anyone knows of any good places to get kitchen appliances at a discount or for cheaper let me know.

Hey there is a scratch and dent place in tucker, they have appliances for cheap and a lot of time the "dents and scratches" are on the sides of the appliances that are not visible. Let me know if you want the address!
