Our New Home

I was just thinking about the last four months this year. We moved to NC from LA in August, started a new job, kids started new school, sold our house in LA, bought a house in NC, and much more in between! Anyway, if it's been a little quiet on the blog lately you can imagine why. I know some of you are curious about what we've been doing to the house, so I'm finally getting around to posting a few before and now pictures. I say now instead of "after" because everything isn't totally finished and unpacked yet. There's always a few more projects to complete. It is starting to feel a lot more like home now though.

All bushy and overgrown before...

Now you can actually tell there's a front porch!

I love sitting on the front porch watching the boys play in the leaves on the driveway.



Before, empty and 80's....

Now, bright and cheery...


Accent wall in Behr Premium Plus Ultra - Cork (PPU6-5)

MBR Before...


Walls in Behr Premuim Plus - Manhattan Mist (760E-2); Bay window in Behr - Milestone (760F-5)

Closet Before
PERFECT CLOSET; each side has 4 rods w shelves in the middle, 1 long rod across back and shelves all around top
Thanks to a Master Carpenter Friend....


Before



Now with new tile in Charcoal Grey from Lowes, walls in Behr Manhattan Mist, painted hardware and lights in Rustoleum Antique Bronze, new mirrors from Target

We wanted it to feel like our home to the boys too so we let them help pick out the colors for their rooms...

Youngest's room before

Walls in Sherwin-Williams - Moonraker (SW6701)



Oldest Son's room before...


Walls in Sherwin Williams - Blissful Blue (SW 6527)



Boys bathroom before...

Now with new tile and also painted SW Blissful Blue

That's all the painting done so far, and for a long while. Painting 3 bedrooms, two bathrooms, and an accent wall in the living room was a lot of work. Next I'll be sewing curtains for a few rooms. Stay tuned for updates on those projects soon.

Right now it's time to sit back and enjoy being home....
