The outside has indeed been (fairly) recently painted and is in quite nice condition. The inside, not so much. It's dirty and there are a number of marks on the fiberglass
, some of which I think will scrub off, others which will probably need paint
or some other covering. There are also several areas which have been repaired rather clumsily - big gobs of brown filler, with no attempt at sanding or even smoothing. Plus several small cracks and holes.
The seat cushions are gone but this doesn't bother me too much. I suspect that after almost 20 years they would be in fairly poor condition anyway and/or would have things living in them. We know a pretty good seamstress locally and we're hoping she'll be able to assist us with making new ones. Likewise, curtains to add to or replace the rather ratty blinds. For the moment though, it's just carpet on top of wood. More comfortable than you might think, but I wouldn't want to sit for too long.
As for the cabinet doors, I think they're just some kind of cheapo laminate. The table is the same ugly pattern so I think a spot of paint
would be helpful there once we've decided upon the trim color.
We'll be spending a chunk of this weekend cleaning and I suspect that once we get started there, we'll have a better idea of what we've got ourselves into.
All good fun.
