We've moved into a new home in February, 2013 Here are pictures of our previous home. It was a modest 3 bedroom, 2 bath house in a good neighborhood. It may not have been our Dream home, but it's was a great place to raise our family, as well as a fun project for me to play around with.
The house use to be a light blue color with a darker blue trim.
Until we painted it this greenish/grey color called Rock Wall with Apple White trim (Kelly Moore Paint)
The Entry In the entryway I painted the coat closet door blue, then went to town on it with my little hand sander. I hung up a mirror and made the wall hooks using a piece of molding and some inexpensive hooks. The light fixture is from Ikea.
I also have this antique shelf in my Living room / entryway. I tend to re-decorate it often.
The Living Room
Here is a picture on the living room BEFORE:
The biggest Change we made was to the Fireplace.
I painted it White. You can learn more about it in this post HERE.
In that post is also a log of my ever changing mantle displays.
Here is the latest look:
The Kitchen had the biggest transformation of the house. Here is what the Kitchen looked like when we first moved in.
We Painted all of the cabinets white, which you can learn more about here.
We also painted the counter tops. To find out more about my painted counter tops go Here.
The Other Side of the Kitchen

Here is the main Bathroom Before:
Changes include new paint on walls, ceiling and vanity. New baseboards and floor. The floor is actually laminated wood floor sticker strips, Which I still love. They have held up nicely and really do look like real wood. See more here.
I also added some barn wood to the bathroom mirror. See more here.
Here are a few looks from the past. (As you can see, I like to switch the shower curtain up often).
(A little trick of mine is to cover the headboard in blankets or fabric. It gives my bed a whole new look).
More looks from the past.
My Boy's Room
Liam and Jaxon share a room, plus is doubles as a play room. I do my best to keep it organized.
