[A light is waiting to carry you home – San Francisco, CA]

June 23, 2015

What ever happened to predictability?
The milk man, the paper boy, evening T.V
You miss your old familiar friends, but

Everywhere you look
There’s a heart
A hand to hold on to.
Everywhere you look
There’s a face of somebody who needs you.When you’re lost out there and your all alone
A light is waiting to carry you home
Everywhere you look.

I’ve moved. It’s official. I’m a West Coast Living, Kale packing, Bi-rite Ice cream drooling, re-useable bag toting Californian. We walked into a slightly musky charming gem of an apartment in the Haight/Hayes Valley ish area. It seems only fitting that after moving to America and learning my favorite catch phrase “Coooool dude” from Full House episodes that I would be moving right by the painted ladies just in time for its rebirth on Netflix.

I’ll let some of these pictures speak for themselves but from re-grouting to planting, we scrubbed our way to our new home.

We start at the beginning, which looks terrifyingly like the end…to be fair the former tenants were still in the process of moving out.

But after a few weeks we came back and everything had been stripped bare.

marginally better.

 

And now as we get closer to completion, here are some updates. I have to admit there is still a lot of work to do but a bit of vinyl wallpaper, a quick re-grout and many hours of HGTV breaks got us here at least…. (PS part two of this home make over to be posted upon completion)
