It was a really quick year, yall! I felt it at the beginning but it didn’t take long to know that God handpicked this house for us. We love it. We have awesome neighbors. We get to walk to school and everything we need is close by. The girls are happy. My man isn’t exhausted after a super long commute. I’ve gotten to watch my business grow and I’ve tried projects to stretch myself. It’s been awesome. (Guess what? Today a stylist and photographer are here shooting our mudroom for BETTER HOMES AND GARDENS! That’s a dream I’ve had and it’s happening!) See? God is so good!!
As a way to celebrate our one year anniversary, I thought I would take you on a tour with before, after and for now pictures along with links to reveal and projects done in each room.
First up, the entryway. Here’s what it looks like now.
First thing to the left is the reading room. You probably know that’s our most recent makeover and it is my favorite.
We redid the laundry room at the beginning of the new year. My handsome man has become quite the wood worker. Thanks to his handiness, brains and youtube.
The dining room / eating nook got fresh paint and a new light too.
The living room got lighter and brighter. We ripped up the carper (having decided about flooring) sold the piano, painted the fireplace, changed out the window frame on the back door and added a built in cabinet for the tv.
The little hallway on the way to our room got a paint job and back in August I built out an extra closet for a mudroom.
The only thing we’ve done upstairs has been my office. We got a new fan and painted.
This green wall used to have my desk but my dad comes into town (from the country) for meetings 2 days a week and spends the night here so it turned into a guest bedroom / my office. My desk is on a plain white wall now but I’ll spruce it up at some point.
One last huge, amazing change. THE EXTERIOR. We had to replace the siding and our windows were horrible so we had all of that done and white paint to make it all even better!
