Fast forward to today and looking back there is a lot I haven't been covering. Last summer Charlie put in a new fence to replace the broken one on the North side, he finished the new bathroom this spring and it is gorgeous! Savannah loves it. Then this Summer he finished putting up new vinyl fence and gate in the front of the house to match the side he did last year. We also put in a shed so we have our garage back for our cars without the clutter.
Here it is fall 2017 and we are currently working on our bedroom. Rather than try to capture all what we did to highlight the processes with before and after pictures:
Before pictures - Savannah's room. Why yes, she loved pink. You will see shortly how much that phase has passed.
Savannah relaxing back in her room. She's happy to have her own space again. Now to get a few wall art items and her closet system, but for the most part it is done.
Before photo of the family room. Now mind you this is from when we first moved in, a lot of the wood floor still had "some" sheen to it. I can't seem to find a real before picture. I can't believe I didn't think of getting one.
I love my new family room! After Tuesday we will have new furniture though.
Love the paint color and the bronze fixtures...this picture was when Charlie started the tile, it sure is pretty and I am jealous it is no longer our master bath.
Look at my husband's handiwork!
The bathroom is a bit too small to get the kind of picture I need to show it off.
Hubby did a good job...love our new fence! Now to get the skirting and trim on the bottom of the shed. Hopefully in the spring???
Before...doesn't look so bad...but believe me it is! The paint is so old and the carpet is really wearing since we moved in-plus we found out that we have hardwood floors underneath.The beige wall has two layers of wallpaper, and the curtains we took down were literally ancient. Feels good to get rid of the old.
Isn't this butt ugly? And it was thick, like brown paper bags! Next time we buy a house I am making sure there isn't layers of wallpaper that will need to come off! Either that or hire someone else to do it (if I will part with the money to pay for something we can do ourselves)
Charlie found this behind one of the baseboards and Savannah's reaction was priceless, "7 cents isn't very much!" So he reminded her that back then the box of Pillsbury was probably only 35 cents to begin with. There isn't a date on it so I am really not sure how old it is.
We have new bedroom furniture ordered and have three months to get everything done when they deliver it. Hoping it will be done before we leave for Utah on Thanksgiving. Charlie cut the door to the bathroom that is going to be the new master bath...really feels like it is for real now and I am excited! As long as we've talked and talked about doing it, I couldn't visualize it until now.
Ha! And we said the only thing we were going to work on the rest of this year was replacing our kitchen tile. Which has to be done also but we will probably start on that after Christmas.
