Before and Afters of Our Home Sweet Home

I've been waiting until the house was "finished" to show updated pictures....Since that is looking like that is years away, I thought I'd post an update as to where we are now.

Outside:  Before 

Outside: After

Not much has changed on the outside.  Michael changed the front (and side) light.  We had it pressured washed.  And a nice new ADT sign since we had the system reactivated. We probably won't do any landscaping until Spring.

Kitchen 1: Before

Kitchen 1: After

We didn't have to do much in the kitchen except paint the walls and trim.

Kitchen 2: Before

Kitchen 2:  After

Living Room 1:  Before

Living Room 1: After
In the living room we painted the ceiling, walls, and trim, installed hardwood flooring, got rid of the out dated ceiling fan, and bought new furniture.  We will probably change out the light again.  It doesn't give off enough light. 

Dining Room 1:  Before

Dining Room 1: After

We painted the walls, and trim.  Added vertical blinds to the sliding glass door.  Added hardwood floors. And replaced the ceiling fan with a chandler.  I have some ideas for black accessories in here.  And a new dining room table (can't blame me for dreaming big).  We still have a few electrical outlets to replace in here. 

Dining Room 2: Before

Spare Room 1: Before

Spare Room 1: After

This room hasn't got much attention.  We painted and added carpet.  I have two chairs in here that belonged to my nanny.  I plan on getting them recovered and using at least one of them in the living room.  We also have a second spare room.  We are using it for storage so I'm not posting pictures of it yet. 

Bathroom 1:  Before
Bathroom 1:  After

Our bathrooms are small.  We painted them both yellow.  We hope to do mini-redos in the future...replacing the flooring and vanities. 

Master Bedroom 1:  Before

We still need to replace the closet doors....just keeping it real for you blogger friends!

This is Michael's current project. He is building me a pantry!  I'm so excited about it.  He has it framed in and is working on filling sheet rock. 
And there you have it.  Our little Casa.
