Totally Frenched Out

Avant/Après

It's amazing what hours of scrubbing and 40€ of paint can do for a balcony:

The nasty entryway closet:

The kitchen (though the volet switch hasn't been fixed yet):

Old/new flooring:

And the best for last - the nasty bathroom closet is now nice and white, and houses my favorite purchase - a gigantic washer & dryer that we bought for 180€ from an American couple desperate to sell before they moved back to the US!

Wow! It looks great. I especially like the washer/dryer. Smart move buying them used. It will make life so much more pleasant. I bet you hate to leave the apartment now.
