Turning our House into a Home

I thought I’d give you all a quick update on what’s going on in my world right now.  A couple weeks ago my husband and I bought a new house.  It is a “fixer-upper” as they say and we are quite overwhelmed with the projects we have gotten ourselves into.  Below are some pictures of our new house in progress along with some of the projects we are working to complete.  Stay tuned to see some before and after pictures and lots of DIY tips!

Let’s hope, for our sake, that the after pictures are in the not-s0-distant future!

For starters, our oak floors will be refinished and the entire house will get a new coat of paint.

Our kitchen will get a face lift: new flooring, counter tops and freshly painted cabinets.

Carpet was removed from almost every room revealing some pretty awesome wood floors in some rooms!

Other rooms revealed some pretty ugly stains that will need to be taken care of.

The exterior will also need a lot of work!  New roof, new landscaping and lots and lots of paint.

It is an understatement to say that we are looking forward to the day when we will be able to sit back and enjoy our new home.  Unfortunately, I am not sure that day is in the near future.  We’ll just take it one step at a time!

What’s the next project on your list?
