The Mahal

So John and I just bought a new house in town.  We’ve been living with my parents since October when we moved to KY and I’m sure they are looking forward to us finally moving into our house!  🙂

I say we bought a “new” house but that all depends on your perspective!  Its new to us, its newer than any house we’ve ever owned but its OLDER than we are!  It was built in 1960 and from all appearances, it has not been updated since!!!!  But that can be a good thing……….especially if your into vintage stuff! 

One of my most favorite things in the house is the light fixture in the dining room.  Last week Mom & Dad cleaned it up for us and you would not believe all the brown smoke stains that came off!!!!!  Pretty nasty but the results were amazing!!!  Take a look:


It turned out great!!!!  

As for the “vintage” wallpaper on the dining room walls……..well, its staying for now!  After pulling wallpaper off 3 rooms and trying to get the glue off the walls so we can paint, we’re going to hold off at least until we either can afford to PAY someone to do it or we forget how hard it was to do ourselves!!  🙂
As for the name of the house, the concensous is that since we already have the Taj (more about him later!) we might as well have the Mahal too!!!!! 
So far its been quite the adventure working on the house and hopefully we’ll be actually moved in within a week or two.  I’ll let you know how it goes!!!
