After all the hard work, the long hours, the weekends, the nights – Five weeks later we moved in.
Though we still have a honey-do list – as any homeowner will tell you – the list never ends. I still need to re-calk the bath, fix the baseboards, the switch, the fireplace, the faceplate, the… the…
But it’s all worth it to come home and feel at home.
Enjoy the after photos!
Our living room is a long with the dinning room at the other end – the wall is over 30 feet long! We painted it jolly rancher purple and boy does it wake you up when you walk in. It’s a little wild – and for our first place – I wouldn’t have it any other way.
We are blessed with beautiful family heirlooms. We borrowed the side hutches from our brother and I found this lamp at Lamps Plus for a steal – I’m so taking it when we sell the place – it’s so pretty and deco!
The cool ocean hues really make the bedroom our oasis. Add a temperpedic bed and it’s a slice of heaven!
It’s a galley kitchen but you can line up 10 people in there at once! It may be small but it has a big heart. I love love love our granite counter tops. Not only can you place hot pots directly on it without worry – it also wipes away clean. Just DO NOT put lemon juice or any type of acid on it – it will damage the stone. Thankfully I learned that lesson on a granite cutting board and not our lovely counter tops. Oil does stain the stone – so don’t forget to seal it.
Looking through our home, I am so thankful for our family and friends who helped us put this all together. Thank you Mom & Dad, Ma & Pa, Bro & Sis, Kris, and Martin. You made our house a home!
Thanks for taking this walk with me down memory lane.
