It’s tiiiiime! The official “before” house tour.

Sorry for the lack of Monday Mood Enhancers yesterday! I was working on a freelance project, then after work, I went to help Aaron with some yard work at the new house (more on that to come).

Before I start talking about before-and-after projects, I thought I should show you all some photos of the house, since I got some empty “bare bones” photos over the weekend.

Here you go:

The front of the house! There are already improvements, but I’ll show you those later.

The living room. And yes, that is dark grey paint. AND YES, they also painted the ceiling dark grey. (???!?!?!!?)

Going directly through the doorway and turning to your left, you enter Bedroom Numero Uno. Also grey. With a grey ceiling. This room will eventually be the office/media room/man cave to end all man caves.

The next room down the hall is the first full bathroom. With grey paint. And pink tile. All design input is welcome. :-\

Moving right along, at the other end of the hall, we have Bedroom Numero Dos. Pretty basic, you know…WITH GREY WALLS AND CEILINGS. Grrr…This room will probably function as a guest bedroom and I think I’ll keep my desk in here, making this room Rosemary on the TV’s official headquarters. 🙂

From Bedroom Numero Dos, you take a right to enter the master bedroom. It’s a lot larger than it appears in this photo and has two large closets and a master bath:


The doors directly ahead are closet doors. The door on the right leads back out to the hallway/guest bedroom, the door on the left leads to the….

KITCHEN! You can’t tell from this photo, but that oven is the biggest, most beautiful thing I’ve ever laid eyes on.

And turning around, a doorway leads back to the dining/living room. And yes, we plan to keep that bronze chandelier EXACTLY as we found it (jk).

One last look at the living room from the other direction, for good measure.

And that’s that! Lots of potential, but lots of work will be involved. I know I’m up for the challenge!

    The kitchen is amazing; the wood floors are beautiful. I think it’s darling, and it has a lot of potential. You’ve got TONS of space to work with, and you’re in no rush!!! xoxo.

    that kitchen is beautiful. you’re so lucky to have a house that doesn’t need a kitchen renovation — it’s a real pain in the ass, believe me! can’t wait to see how adorable you make it!
