Today is my anniversary!! Well, half-anniversary, to be exact. I moved into my new home exactly 6 months ago today!
I dug out some photos from when I toured the house back in November of last year - excuse the quality, most of them were taken on my iPad. I thought it would be fun to see what has changed since I moved in. Keep in mind the photos from the tour had all the previous homeowners' furnishings so that is, of course, a big part of the change.
Ok, I'm excited, here we go!!
|The Kitchen before had a very dark green paint which made it feel dark, despite the skylight.|
|Dining Room then.....|
|Living Room then....|
|And now. Biggest change here was replacing the wood burning insert - the previous one was an antique and not energy efficient at all. Of course fresh paint and new windows make a big difference as well. And the addition of a soft rug underfoot not only brightens the space but also makes it feel more welcoming. Someday I'll get around to adding some more artwork to this room and changing out those sconces. And of course I'm still debating how to hide the TV.|
|What once was two bedrooms.....|
|Is now my master suite. Open the one remaining door and get the full tour in this post|
|What was once this....|
|Is now this, part of the master suite. Huge difference! That's your sneak peek at the master suite.....|
|One of my favorite transformations that didn't involve major construction is in the lower level.|
|What was once a man cave....|
|Is now a cozy and comfortable family room.|
|The previous owners' little corner bar.....|
|Now houses an extra fridge and wine storage.|
|The laundry and workout area....|
|Behind the curtains is my older daughter's space when she comes home. The sofa pulls out to a queen size bed. This is also my workout space when she's not home. It didn't get much use this week....busy, busy.|
|The laundry area is the largest and nicest I've ever had! It's mostly used by my daughter now since I have laundry facilities in my master suite.|
|The original listing photo, taken obviously before the previous homeowners painted the house and deck.|
|This space is now my heaven on earth. I'm so sad to say goodbye to this space for the cold months...|
I hope you enjoyed my half-anniversary edition of the home tour as much as I enjoyed showing you around! The only space you haven't seen yet is the guest room and guest bath....soon!
Have a fabulous fall weekend, everyone!
