Won’t You Be My Neighbor – Dundee, Illinois

By RetroRuth

This week we have a house that needs a little love. But there is a pink kitchen, so it would all be worth it in the end.

So, this place is going to need some new carpet. And it looks like there was some roof leakage that it going to need to be fixed. And that kitchen flooring is yuck. But pink kitchen! Pink! And that great room is fantastic. What do you think?

    Yes , yes and yes. Rip up the carpet, fresh paint, new roof and I must admit I would have to get rid of the wallpaper, good cleaning of all the beautiful wood, TLC.

    “Original owner” is important if you’re going to restore such a home to its original glory, because little has been done to muddle (read: renovate) its original features. I could work with this!

    That kitchen is really fab. Is that overhead light movable? Seriously? I really love it all. If I couldn’t find pink appliances, I would just put in stainless and love it all the same.

    Isn’t it great when one owner bought the house and loved it so well that it never got changed.
