I love my little house.
Honestly, it is not at all what I thought we would end up in and yet, every day I find something else about it that I just love.
But I also moved in knowing that there were some changes I wanted to make.
Like the kids' bathroom. It was original to the house, so at 15 years old it was a tad outdated. Since we knew we could make a big difference with just a few minor changes that is where we started this past week. Hubby having a week off was super helpful.
Here are a few before picture-
We removed the stock builder's mirror and replaced it with two I found at Bed, Bath and Beyond-
Took off the counter top and painted the wood cabinets black-
Reinstalled the old cabinet top, but replaced the sink fixtures-
Hung the two towel racks next to each other
Added new light fixtures-
And a few final touches!
I love it! Can you tell? ;)
Another thing we have done is transform our front porch with back patio areas soon to come. Both were clean slates, so it was a lot of fun. The only change left is painting the front door. I love the wood, but again, it is 15 years old and quite weather worn. Thinking about black, but if you have any ideas, I would love to hear them!
Here is the before-
|There are little trees in the pots now. Guess I need a picture of that!|
Still several projects left, but remember what my hubby says, Rome was not built in a day!
