Before and After

SO I found some before pics of the house. Thought I would share a couple.


After (sorry for the nigh time pic) We painted Shutters and door, took down dark screens, ripped out the vine/lattice. We will be adding landscaping in the spring :)


After: We painted the cabinets, floors, light fixtures

Opposite side of kitchen Before

After: I took the doors off and painted. Changed the light. Still need a window treatment


After: Painted (which is a long story, but this is not the color I want :( and  we changed floors, and ripped out the wet bar (cabinet looking thing) and shelf


After: Took out brown window treatment. Im still working on the mantle, and need a large side table between sofa and chair. I would also like to change the side chairs to something with pattern and color. But, Im Still looking for the perfect pieces! 

This is the wet bar I mentioned previously that we took out.

So that it is for now. I change things daily, and we complete new projects weekly. This is not exactly how I want it, but it is coming along. I am almost finished with our bedroom/bathroom, but we took out a counter in the bathroom, and are about to paint :) When that is complete, I will post more... as for now.... it is very "disorganized"

Also, I am working on Spencer's office,the guest room, and painting the laundry room this weekend!!! Yay.

There is soo soo soo much I want to do, and so many great visions/ideas that I have, however I am learning to be much more patient with the status quo and penny pinch my "stash"so I can save for the big items I want. I feel like I look at every home decor website three times a day, visit homegoods weekly, and constantly have a new project for Spence :) With that said, we love our sweet little house...and it is slowly but surely feeling quite like home!!

House update

Well, I have finally decided to post a couple house pics, even though it kills me.  I am a complete perfectionist, and I want everything complete and perfect ASAP. Unfortunately, that is not possible when you are planning a wedding and updating a 4 bedroom house at the same time. We are still in the process of completing EVERYTHING...but we are surely getting there!

My before pics of the house were on my old phone, and is dead. But, imagine brown everywhere. Brown walls, brown cabinets, brown molding. We have put in new floors in the kitchen and den, painted the den (thats another story), kitchen, and bedroom, torn out cabinets in the den and bathroom, And are currently in the process of painting the master bathroom and the laundry room! We also painted the outside of the house, along with taking out some yucky vine landscaping.

Kind of slanted, but this is the best I could get! Painted shutters and door. I am waiting a couple of weeks before we plant fall flowers in the flower bed. We will also even out the shrubs, but we have to wait until spring.

This is our den. The back wall where the buffet is had a huge wet bar cabinet before. We took that out, along with a built-in bookshelf. (Please excuse the pictures hanging...slapped them up to get something on the wall)

Breakfast area. The walls are grayish-green color (not the lime green they look like) There were doors on the shelving unit. I took them off to display things....still in progress. Just ordered chandelier for over table.

Opposite from table. All the cabinets were ugly brown.

Thanks for looking! I will post more VERY soon :)
