New House

I FINALLY got around to putting the before/after pictures of our house on here, now that we've lived here for 2 months!!


This is Lauren's room before - pirates aren't really our thing :)

During (don't ever ask me to help remove wallpaper, I've had enough)



And now - we did the same thing we had in her room before with the walls, but with different colors.

We still haven't finished putting stuff up on her walls yet, but we do have one of these flower stickers on each wall, courtesy of my awesome friend Julie who made them for me :)

Living room after we took out the carpet

Living room now (still not done decorating, but I guess that's how every room is)

This was a closet in the living room - I never got a chance to take a picture of it, because we tore it out about 15 minutes after we got the keys.

I'm really glad we got rid of the closet, because it makes the living room/entryway feel so much bigger.

Kitchen before - awesome cabinets

Kitchen now - Bryan painted the cabinets cream with a chocolate glaze, new countertops, new appliances, tiled the backsplash, and put can lights in the ceiling and these 2 pendant lights in over the bar with matching chandelier over the table. He did a lot of work in here.


You can see some of the family room here, this is the hand rail that matched the kitchen cabinets


Bryan sanded and refinished the handrail to match the wood floors and we put in new carpet


More pictures of the family room and the fireplace (and Lo taking measurements)

Refinished the mantle, took out the ugly tile around the fireplace and replaced it with the same tile that's on our backsplash in the kitchen.

Mya's room beforeHer room now - we put chair rail all around the room 12 inches apart to make this super cute border, and here's another cute addition from Julie with the stickers.
We still have so much to do - we haven't done the bathrooms or our bedroom yet, but some of that should be coming this Christmas, but we love New House!!!

Have I mentioned that I love your house? Yes? Well, let me say it again, I LOVE YOUR HOUSE!!!

I wish we could play on Saturday, but we have Real tickets! What are your Halloween plans? We might be in the area- If you are home, we want to come see the little trick-or-treaters!
