You'll also notice that in the before shot the refrigerator is in the middle of the livingroom. Don't ask why...it was a request by the former tenant who also asked to use this larger unit rather than a more compact one I had readied for her.
Thankfully, the new tenant is my cousin who just moved to Los Angeles to attend a local university. Since I already know she's tidy, conscientious and design savvy, I didn't fret about the little, yet time-consuming details going unnoticed (or being abused).
I'm thrilled I was finally able to replace the mismatched base moulding in that main room. There were three different styles, believe it or not! The terrible things that people do to property...I'll never understand.
