Today, I am finally posting the “after” pictures from my home renovation! I know it’s been forever, but I was waiting until I had a wide enough lens to show the rooms. It just so happened that the day I took all the pictures, we had a cloudy day which created some awesome natural light, which in turn made me look like I know what I’m doing with pictures. Don’t be fooled. I borrowed my sister’s GoPro. I couldn’t figure out how to charge it (Thank God that my roommate is a videographer – shout out to Maddie Short). I then took about 15 videos that ranged from 40 seconds – 2 seconds because I thought I was on the camera mode and then realized I didn’t know how to stop recording. The struggle was real people! But, I persevered, and cannot wait to show you my house.
In all honesty, I love how my house turned out. I’m so glad I chose a fixer upper. It was so fun to pick out everything, from the cabinets to the floor color. I’ve loved decorating every inch, and look forward to one day fixing up the basement (another “bathroom” and our laundry “room” is down there). Getting to work alongside my parents, grandparents, and (at times) my siblings was such a neat experience. I learned a lot during this renovation and cannot wait to use my knowledge on future endeavors.
I want to take you on a tour of the house as if you’re walking in for the first time. Hopefully, these pictures will give you an idea of the layout of the house.
The Living Room
Which leads into the Dining Room
Which leads into the Kitchen
From there, a hallway off the Dining Room and Kitchen leads to 2 bedrooms and a bath.
Finally, a staircase off the dining room leads to the second floor.
I realize all of the pictures aren’t the highest quality, but hopefully that gives you a rough overview of our home make over! Leave a comment with your favorite room, favorite transformation, or thoughts on possible upgrades.
