house tour tuesday: my cousin’s craftsman

it’s almost midnight and i just remembered that i haven’t shared the house tour tuesday for today.

i’m quite excited about this one.

my cousin and her hubby just bought their first home together. it’s a cute little craftsman. actually, it’s going to be a cute little craftsman after they are done renovating it. i wanted to share all of the before pictures with you here and i’ll make sure to update you all on the after reveal!

as you can see, it needs a little tlc.

but, the bones of the home are good and the charming character is all still there.

they have a lot of work ahead of them. my cousin said it best when she said her husband told her this was a coke stain on the wall and she chose to believe him. (i would too!)

they also have a few friends that need to move out. (yes, that is an owl. owls are very popular right now….maybe they should leave him) πŸ˜‰

i love that they are willing to tackle this project and love this home back to the way it used to be and then some.

here’s the kitchen.

they’re gutting this whole area, busting out a few walls, and starting from scratch! i can’t wait to see it all done! (although Β i have to say those cabinets make me swoon a little with their quaker style, but i know it’s going to be even more fabulous!)

oh, and did i mention they are going to be having a baby in June! they’re pretty awesome!

for the complete story and more before pictures, head on over to my cousin’s blog. it’s a great story!

(thanks, T & L for letting me share your pics!)
