Our New House!

If you follow me on social you probably know that we sold our current house and bought a new one! We are only moving about 10 minutes from our current house, but to a different school district and a bigger house with a bigger yard. We are SO excited to move next week and have been working hard on the new house to make it ours. Today I'm sharing all of the "before" photos and our plans for the house. (Note: most of these are listing photos - none of the furniture is ours - we haven't moved in yet!) Follow along on Instagram to stay up to date on our progress!

Front/Exterior: No plans right now. In the future, we'd like to update the siding, shutter, and door colors, but no rush to do that. I'll probably spend some time on the flowers next year, but not worrying about anything this fall. Just typical maintenance.

Kitchen/Dining: new floors, new paint on walls and trim, cabinets getting painted, new cabinet hardware, new countertops, new kitchen faucet, new microwave for over the stove.

Family room: new floors (no more carpet), new paint on walls and trim, paint built-ins white.

Living Room: new paint on walls and trim.

Master bedroom: New paint on walls and trim, install closet organizers.

Finley's room: new paint on walls and trim.

Playroom: new paint on walls and trim.

Half bathroom: new floors, new paint on walls and trim, new toilet, new sink, new faucet, new countertops, paint cabinets, new cabinet hardware.

Full Bathroom: New floors, new paint on walls and trim, new sink, new faucet, new countertops, paint cabinets, new tub/shower, all new fixtures.

Guest Bedroom: Nothing right now.

Basement: Nothing right now.

Office/Storage Room: Nothing right now.

Back Yard: Move fire pit to corner. In the future we will tear down the current shed (not in great shape) and add a new one, add a landscaped area around the fire pit, add flowers, power wash and stain the deck.

All of the walls, trim, and doors on the main floor are getting painted. We (aka my dad) also changed  out almost all of the outlets and switches because most of them had been painted over or were tan instead of white. We also have a lot of new light fixtures to install. We've already done a TON of work, which you can see in my saved highlights on my Instagram, but still have lots to do! I'll plan to share some of the in progress pics soon.

Our First House: Before & After

It's been quite a while since I've posted on this blog. But life has been busy. Having a nine month old that's on the move is a full-time job. On top of that, we decided to sell our house and move. We're staying in the area, but looking for something with a little more space and a better layout. Since we're saying goodbye to this house in a couple of months, I thought I'd share a little before and after of when we bought it, to when we sold it. Everyone loves a good before and after, right?

 It will be bittersweet to leave this house. We spent seven great years here. It's the place we brought our baby girl home to. But I'm also excited to start the next chapter of our lives in a new house that we can make our home....wherever that ends up being. (That's right, we still haven't found a house - keep your fingers crossed for us!)
