The Little House: The Final Before and After Part One

Tuesday, July 16, 2013

Y'all. I found a gem on Google a few months ago. We had just put our little house on the market, and I happened to come across the old listing (from when we bought it) and was just SO excited because the old pictures would mean the ultimate before and after post.

I started my old blog after we had already moved in, painted (and painted), redone the counters, most of the appliances, and the ceilings. I never got a chance to show off the "true" before....the faux-textured ORANGE walls, the fluorescent lights, and the all of the fake greenery (Now, I will say that this house was very clean and decorated....just not my style).  SO. Here it is for the world to see!
Up first is our front door, which I don't have far away shots of the "After", but I DO love my fall decorations :).

After:





(Excuse my "after" pictures in the rest of these, the lighting is not the best, I was trying to snap quick shots for our listing. :))

Here is the Living Room, which I loved and had pretty much called "done" the day before we decided to sell. Of course.

After:






Bryan and I made over that buffet (Craigslist, baby) right before Christmas. I LOVE how it turned out.





And here is the Dining "Area" that was just behind our couches.

After:





And the kitchen is last. As you can see, the kitchen, living, and dining room were pretty much just one big space.

After:





Can I just say thank goodness for husbands that know how to install can lighting and countertops? And backsplashes, too. And sinks...and wood floors. :) Too bad we never got to that stove!




So that's Part One! Hope you enjoyed it. Stay tuned for the bedrooms and bathrooms. Thanks for reading and talk to you later!


What things have you learned to live with in your house that you originally wanted to change?
