I mentioned we spent some time renovating the house a little before moving in. I haven’t had the time to take fancy after photos, but I thought I’d quench your curiosity with a little update with before/after shots of some of the rooms. We can’t wait to make this house even more our home in the coming years… we keep trying to remind ourselves we have years to do things!
We also spent a lot of time at Lowe’s and Home Depot, as well as had a birthday party for my Mom!
painted the cabinets white, new super awesome faucet, contact papered inside the shelves, new refrigerator, repurposes old furniture
new toilet and sink faucet, paint, few repurposed pieces, and a touch of orange for my uncle
new toilet, painted the cabinets and door/window trim white, new sink faucet and shower head, repurposed a few pieces, and a touch of orange for my uncle
And last, but not least, Chris found this awesome website to build things out of 2x4s. So, we decided to make custom desks for ourselves from More Like Home.
I haven’t decided if I want to stain my desk or paint it white yet. Chris has a similar desk right next to mine for his podcast studio. It’s pretty awesome to finally have an open space to create, write, and edit photos. I love it – and it’s made just for me.
Now, if I could only get my act together to get out for a run one of these days…
On a side note… I am upset about Robin Williams passing. He reminded me a lot of my dad. Chris and I were talking about him the other day, quoting lines from Mrs. Doubtfire while we worked. Bless his family and all those who knew him well. He was an amazing person.
