(Icky) Before and (Better) After

It's time to show my before and after pictures. Are you ready?????????
If you'd like to know how we came to live here, you can read about it HERE
 Alright time to start. I'll start in the kitchen. 
Before :(  
(As in when we bought. BEFORE we moved in. I have no desire to take credit for any of the before's.)
Ok, THIS IS THE AFTER. I wouldn't want to scare you away. ;)

During and before.



Dining room before. Not sure what she was going for.??
the old west??
                                                        

                                                         And After.                    



I painted all of the wood floors with a Valspar  Porch and Floor paint from Lowe's. Because they weren't consistant, not in perfect condition, and I had already almost single handedly done all of the reno inside it was just easier to do it this way and worry about it later. We are now mulling over/researching whether we want to redo with wood or laminate. (Our son did help with some carpentry work inside and I am soooo grateful for his help!. And advice when he wasn't able to come. I also want to thank GOOGLE. I owe them. haha If what needed done wasn't in my experience already, I would google and find out how to get it done. It never failed me. ;) To see how I did my hutch look HERE. 

North side living room before.

Your home is lovely!! Can't get over the window in that bath being covered up!! Wow!! What an improvement!!!

Nancy said...

Thank you, Melanie! My windows are one of my favorite parts about our home. The previous owner missed out on a lot of beautiful views because that wasn't the only one she had covered. :/
