Welcome! We've never posted photos of all our current rooms in one place before. Usually we just share the before and afters as they happen. However, we're contemplating some drastic design changes in the next year, so we thought it'd be fun to chronicle what our house looks like today. Sit back and enjoy the tour . . .
First, the entryway. A much needed coat closet prompted us to redo this space, which was once cluttered and embarassing.
The kitchen. It's tiny, but efficient -- and we spend most of our time there. How'd we spice our space up on the cheap? First, we slapped some paint on the walls and added a dramatic printed curtain. Would you believe the floor was carpeted when we moved in? Believe it! And learn how we fixed the problem for only $1.99 a square foot!
The Family room. When we moved in, it was rather plain and carpeted 1960s-style to boot! We used it first as our dining room, but recently changed stuff around. Learn how we added some key architectural details and exposed those beautiful hardwoods with only a little cash and, OK, a lot of effort.
Living room/Dining room (sort of a decor mashup, I guess -- we're not thrilled with it at the present moment):
Upstairs to the guest room/office. When we moved in, this room was a pale shade of pink. A little girl's dream. Problem is: We don't have kids, and I'm a bit of a tomboy. But we were able to transform the space from pretty to posh for less than $300.
The craft room:
The "master" bedroom:
The only bathroom:
Outside to the front lawn:
Our covered porch:
There you have it. Our house. (Just about) all 1200 square feet of it, minus the bathroom (yes, singular bathroom) because it isn't quite "done" -- really, none of these rooms are "done". We've only been here about a year and a half. Though our house isn't quite a snazzy as we'd like . . . it's not too shabby either.
