If you missed the first part of the tour of our first house the other day, you can find it here. I am back with shots of the yard. I don't have a good before picture of the front or back...so....here is my explanation of it :)
In the front: We got rid of the privacy hedges in front of the front door and seeded the area with grass... ahhh...much better! Luckily the house was pretty good on the exterior so we didn't need to focus on it too much! I also got a new light and new house numbers.
In the back: Got a newer fence, built a retaining wall for the garden on the righthand side of the backyard, and painted the deck a grayish-blue instead of the pinkish-red deck that it previously was. We had other landscaping work done, as well as Todd and his friend putting in the awesome patio. One of the very last projects done so
Another one of my FAVORITE rooms was Brecken's room. It turned out just how I visualized it and I LOVED it! It was so cozy and had so many memories of late-night feedings, nap times, and diaper changes.
Before: Brecken's Room - Dingy white walls, gross carpet and extremely outdated window coverings
After: New fan, new paint, new carpet, new door and lots and lots of fun decor!'
Before: Master Bedroom
Salmon colored wall, ugly carpet, and a gross comforter leftover from the auction.
After: New paint (yes, we had a pink wall in our bedroom... Todd had a great attitude about it.. and I promised I wouldn't do it in this next house! :) ), Ceiling fan, new carpet, new doors and black curtains instead of the closet doors.
Before: Upstairs Bathroom
Ohhhh... the bathroom. What's not to love? The floor, the brass medicine cabinet, or maybe the light fixture?
After: New paint, new bathtub and it was tiled to make a shower, exhaust fan, new lights, new flooring, new sink and faucet, new countertop, new mirror and a new toilet.
