oh man- before pictures

now that i've established my story, here are some before pictures of my condo.  it's an 810 square foot one bedroom, one bath with a kitchen and small dining room.  an open floor plan between the dining room, living room and kitchen help make the space feel larger than it is.    so here go the before pictures...

beware.  some of the pictures are difficult to handle.

the woman who lived here before me, a sweetheart, had lived in the place for the same number of years that i've been alive. 

here's the parkay flooring under old green carpet, it was purposefully visible in the "foyer"
