Welcome to our home....lets begin with the exterior!
To the exterior, we added gutters...WOW can water really kill a home if not taken care of properly. We got rid of the 80s style siding....diagonal siding was not exactly what we had hoped for when looking for a home. We also put on a fresh coat of paint and Viola!
After:Eventually, we will purchase new shutters, paint the front door, level out the front porch and add shrubs and flowers.
Coming in through the front door, you walk right into our Living Room!
Step 1 was to strip the baseboards and pull up the carpet.We started painting before we laid the floors...a lot less clean up, which is good for someone who is rather good at spilling paint!And the boys got going!
Still need to hang pictures and patch up the wall where the chair rail was.
Next is the Dining Room....and these are the only pictures I have of it. Not quite done yet!
To the left of the Dining Room is the Kitchen....We carried the hardwoods on into the kitchen rather then switching to tile. In the Kitchen, we painted the walls and cabinetry, replaced the countertops, painted the backsplash and organized the laundry/pantry.
Here is the kitchen after the countertops were installed.
In the kitchen, we still need to put the hardware on the drawers, get rugs for in front of the sink and stove, and patch the walls for the backsplash. We would love to get a new sink and faucet...but all in due time.
Here is my favorite part of the Kitchen....the newly organized pantry. In order to even have a pantry, we had to get clever. By stacking the washer and dryer and installing shelving, we now have a pantry!
And the oh so interesting hallway.
Still need one more coat of paint and possibly a runner and pictures. We are also replacing all the doors and hardware....can't wait for that. It will make such a difference!
First room you come to in the hallway is Zoe Jane's Nursery! I have waited so long to be able to do this little one's nursery....I loved putting it together!
Here it is with new carpet:
I still need to put pictures in the frames on the wall, paint the frames and get a lamp.
My mom made the curtains and the glider cushions. She did a wonderful job! I love the houndstooth and the giraffe print!
And another organized closet....obsessed with organization!
Next is the Bathroom.
For the bathroom, we need to replace the counter and the floors. But I like it!
And that is the end of the tour. Our second tour will include the Master Bedroom, Master Bath and Guest Bedroom. Who knows when those will be done though...haha.
