First House: Before and After

Welcome to my house tour! 

This is how our house looked when we moved in, 2 1/2 years ago and how it looks today!

 When we bought our 3 bed, 2 1/2 bath two-story, neither of us knew it would become my mission-slash-obsession to transform it into a modern, chic, design oasis! Not to mention attempting it on a decor budget consisting of spare change and pure will. 

This page is a work in progress and I will swap in new "now" pics as I go around sprinkling magic DIY dust on various rooms in our house. Enjoy!

What we had to work with: major curb appeal.

Let's take it room by room. When you walk through the front door, you step into our living room. This was the view from the front door before.




What we did:
Still to come:
  • Paint front door
  • Refinish media stand
  • Hang flat screen TV
  • Pot for Mr. Figgy (the tree in the corner)
  • New lamp shades
  • Redo Gallery Wall
The Dining Room Before:


What we did:
  • New tile flooring
  • Painted walls
  • Plate Wall
  • Black and White photo frames
Still to come:
  • Find a buffet for our junk!
  • Room division from living room, hopefully will double as toy storage

Kitchen Before


What we did:
  • New tile floor
  • Painted
  • New stove, microwave

Still to come:

  • Repaint walls lighter
  • New valance
  • **Someday** refinish cabinets
  • new countertop, sink, etc.

Band Room Before

What we did:
  • Painted fireplace
  • New tile flooring
  • New Rug

We haven't been able to do much since this is where we store our worship band equipment during the week (me and hubs are musicians :) Maybe someday I can turn this into a cute sitting room or music room!

                                                                    Upstairs Bath Before


Master Bedroom Before


Those are the major changes so far! There are still some completely untouched spaces like the Laundry,
and Master Bathroom.

They're on my hit list. Chaos- consider yourself warned.
