My favorite transformation! There are a few things with landscaping I'd still like to do out here, but overall I'm so thrilled with the changes we've made to the exterior of our home in the past seven years.
We've actually replace that boob light since this photo was taken, and we switched out the doorknob also, but otherwise, this space looks as shown.
Not pictured in this photo is the fantastic built in bench that I made for our dining room. I just love it and I'm super proud of myself for tackling it on my own.
Possibly my favorite room in the house, I built my own personal library in our front office space. I'm slowly filling it up with more books over time.
The deck is a big source of frustration for me. It's a beautiful space and we use it all the time, however the lovely but grueling paint job we gave it a few summers ago did not hold up at all. The whole thing is currently a chippy mess. We're currently exploring some options and trying to decide how to remedy it, but it will probably be at least next year before we make any progress here.
Basement Family Room
This room has kind of been a catch all for older furniture and random artwork thus far. I'm hoping that in the next few years we'll make some real progress down here and actually use the space more. First on the list... getting rid of that blue carpet!
My oldest's bedroom. She's five years old.
My youngest's bedroom. She just turned two!
This after photo is actually pretty outdated now, as I've made several big changes to this space since it was taken, but here's where I left off on the previous blog, so I'll catch you up soon on what's changed in here. Stay tuned for that!
This is the one room we've barely touched since moving in. Since it's hidden off our bedroom, no one but us ever sees or uses it, so it's easy to focus attention elsewhere. Recently though, we decided to get a move on, and made a tiny bit of progress in here. More to come!
