The "Before"

We started doing some work to the house this past weekend, but wanted to show you some of the the "before" pictures. As you can see, we already put up some paint samples, but more to come on that in my next post. The house is 3 bedrooms to baths and about 1,400 sq. ft. Great starter home that we will probably have for about 5 years. The house was a rental for a few years and the renters did not keep up on the house or the yard, but I don't blame them! Our landlord just came over today to do a bunch of yard work we apparently neglected because we are renters! Our plan is to work on the inside of the house first, painting, remodeling the kitchen and re-finishing the floors darker (do you like the white wash 80's look?) and then start landscaping the yard and paint the exterior of the house starting next spring. Adam is really excited to start on the yard and already has ideas in his head from HGTV (our favorite channel these days!). I, on the other had, absolutely hate yard work and am not looking forward to working on it. I am going to have to find some excuse when the time comes!

Below are pictures of the living room, guest bathroom and kitchen. I will post before and after pictures of the the master bedroom and bath after we are finished with those rooms. We just started to paint them this week! I wanted to post more, but I discovered that moving pictures around is not easy and I am still trying to get the hang of this whole blogging thing!


  1. I'm so excited for this blog! I love home remodels. SO excited for you to own a home!

  2. The place looks like it's coming along already. Can't wait to see the finished product. Congratulations again!

  3. The inside looks like it's going to be super cute!!
