OK peeps, here's what you've all been waiting for - HOUSE PICTURES! Because I am lazy and blogger is acting weird right now, I'm just putting them all on here in no particular order. The "Before's" are first. Also, I didn't edit anything. Again, because I am lazy and it already took me 2 days to get this post ready.
Kitchen - notice the weird counter top piece hiding the back of the stove
Water heater in Garage
Back of house
New flooring and lighting in the kitchen and dining room
We painted the kitchen cabinets a dark brown. The actual color is Sarasparilla by Olympic. The finish is Gloss. The turtle in the window is from Senegal, West Africa. Zach thought he needed to look out the window and that is where he's staying. :)
New French Door refrigerator. The wall color in the kitchen is Vanilla Brandy.
Living Room - wall color is Martha Stewart Brick Hearth
There will eventually be more things on the walls.
I love our fireplace. The mantle was natural cedar when we bought it - we painted it dark brown.
The window on the mantle is from my paternal grandparents house - the house my dad grew up in. They still live there, but they replaced the windows a while back and DD let me have them.The djembe (drum) is from Senegal, West Africa too.
Master Bath - I made the curtain. That fabric was $46 a yard at JoAnns and I found it for $5.99 a yard at OHCO in Covington. That was a good day.
We painted the vanity the same color as the kitchen cabinets and bought a new counter top, new sinks, and new faucets. We got new lighting too from Lithonia Lighting.
Justin installed a shower door.
And he did a little landscaping in the backyard.
He and Daddy built a cover for the water heater.
Justin added shelves to the side for shoe storage. Since living in Korea, both of us are in the habit of removing our shoes when we get home.
These are the cabinets that we took out of the kitchen. Now we have excellent storage in the garage.
Well that's it for now folks. We haven't done anything at all to the upstairs yet, and our Master Bedroom is next on the project list.I want to know what you think so PRETTY PRETTY PLEASE leave me some comments!
