and here's the reality
http://i50.photobucket.com/albums/f317/artst1/junkstore.jpg

i bought this place a couple years ago, and was trying to decide if i should tear it down or fix it up...i posted about it about a year ago here, and ya'll thought i should fix it up...

well, since then i been working on the lil house behind it to live in....and i moved in a bit ago, so....pretty soon i'll start on this place...i already got quite a bit in my piggy bank for the roof...hopefully i'll have enough to do it in the fall....no need starting on the pretty stuff, till i can get the water out. LOL

It looks like it has great potential to be a cute little shop and that's great you can live right behind it.

Congratulations on already buying your place--that's at least half of it! In time, you will have it fixed up how you picture it--remember we are allowed to change our dreams. Good Luck! icon_biggrin.gif

Wow! Thanks for sharing the "dream" and the reality. I bet you can make this place look amazing, though!

btw...where in OK are you? I am north of Tulsa, and will have to come by and see your place when you are all done with it! icon_smile.gif

I have never seen anything like the bright colored house. It is absolutely adorable. It looks like it is full of life and fun. I think it is a great example to inspire you.
Your house is going to be so cute and wonderful. It will make people smile and think of happy and good times. icon_biggrin.gif

I must confess I burst out laughing when I saw the 2nd pic ... it is SUCH a contrast to the first one! And the "bargain" name on the front is perfect for it right now!

But like everyone else, I SO see the potential in it! Gosh, what I'd give to have all of those windows!!! ANd it's all yours! I've VERY envious!!!
