I am so excited to finally share some pictures of our first home we purchased back in October! It has been such a whirlwind, but we absolutely LOVE being homeowners (minus all the snow removal my husband has had to do this winter!). Sorry for the quality of the pictures, but they were taken quickly before all of our furniture was moved in :).
Some projects that are in progress/completed right now:
- Replacing all the carpet in the bedrooms (completed!)
- Removing wallpaper in all the rooms (almost done!)
- Replacing all other carpet with hardwood floors (floors purchased, prepping to install)
- Painting (Completed: master bedroom, hallway, front entrance, family room, office, kitchen; Still needed: two bedrooms, bathrooms, mudroom, laundry room)
- Paint all trim white (almost done!)
- Replace kitchen appliances (range replace, fridge being delivered end of this month; microwave and dishwasher will be replaced later)
- Replace washer/dryer (completed!)
- Replace light fixtures
- Tile mudroom area and laundry room
- Re-tile both bathrooms and install new vanities (first vanity purchased!)
I think that is what is on our radar right now - lots going on right now! As you will see below, these are definitely Before pictures. And the previous owners were kind enough to leave many of their window treatments, bathroom decorations, and decorations throughout the remainder of the house - those have all been replaced too! I can't wait to share the AFTER pictures with you all!
