House Remodel

Brian and I are big DIYers and last year we bought a fixer upper in a nice neighborhood and hope to sell it in a couple years and move into something bigger.  We've spent the last year remodeling our house and it is about 98% done - just a few minor last minute things to get done, but it's close enough that I can post some pictures.  

The Living Room Before:
Old carpet and old windows.
 The living room probably was the least transformational of all of our rooms.  It was pretty basic to begin with.
We ripped the carpet out, laid hardwood, painted the room and trim, replaced the windows, and built the shelves on the right.  Brian laid most of the hardwood, but I probably did about 15% of it.  I got pretty good at it - it was a lot easier than I thought it would be.  

The Dining Room Before:
Awful wallpaper, partially peeling off -a chevron pattern from 20 years ago, old light fixture, and old carpet

The Dining Room After:  
We painted the trim and wainscoting white, ripped off the wallpaper, painted the walls a light blue/gray, replaced the window and light fixture, and laid hardwood

The Master Bedroom Before:
Awful wallpaper border and carpet

Master Bedroom After:
New carpet, replaced the windows, removed wallpaper border, painted the room a light gray color.  --And yes, that is my treadmill in the bedroom and I use it 3-4x/wk. - I should've hidden the stuff under our bed and nightstand better

I'll try and take more after pictures over the next several weeks.


Thanks for leaving me a message! Many Blessings!
