Our new house- pictures!

As promised, here are some pictures of our house. I've even included some before and afters just so you can see how hard we've worked in the last week! :)

The outside: This needs some major work. I want to take off the scallops. You can't see it in this picture but there was a screen door and it was ugly. I ripped it off asap and now our pretty red door shows. But we either need to get full view storm door or just redo the trim around the door because it looks a little funky. A little lanscaping is necessary. And that light post needs to go! No pictures but we need a new mailbox. If you look closely, we are missing a shutter! So there's definite work to be done out here! :)

The Living room: Before/After. We have more things to hang up and maybe an arm chair to add but it's coming together. I decided not to paint in here. The walls aren't white, but they aren't bad either, for now! :) *Love my pillows? I do!

The dining room: Before/After. The table is a little closer than I would like to the door but what can you do!

The Kitchen: Before/After. I still want to replace the hardware on the cabinets....well I'd like to replace the entire cabinets but for now the hardware will do. I wasn't sure about the paint color at first but I really like it now. We also got a pantry cabinet ($185 from Home Depot, woo!) because this kitchen has no pantry! It works perfect and it seems to hold more than our last pantry that was already built in, but of course I've filled it quickly!

Our Bedroom: Before/After. Small, yes. But it's not too bad actually. We are making it work and it's actually my most favorite room right now!

Upstairs Bathroom: Before/After. We still need to replace the light fixture. It's already bought but we just need to install it. Then we are going to replace the faucet too.

Basement: Before/After. Chance has been working hard on his theater type room. The rest of the basement is an absolute mess. We haven't even started on it yet. But this room is almost complete. I couldn't get a good picture of it, but it really looks awesome! :)

Backyard: Before the tree fell down. It's since been picked up!! Woo hoo. I just haven't taken a new picture of the yard, but it's about the same I guess...though it does look better in this picture :)

And the rest of the house, the two rooms (well one room that we will be making into two rooms) in the basement, the two rooms upstairs and the basement bathroom look all something like this......

We still have a ways to go.

Amy you are amazing! Your house already looks wonderful! I can tell you guys have worked hard- I feel like you've probably gotten more done on your house in a week than I have in almost a year! I LOVE all your colors- I really don't know how you do it! Everything goes together so well and looks great!
And yes you're lucky you have so many handy men to help you out- I'm sure that will save you a lot of stress in the future too ;) Congrats on being all moved in!
