House Tour!

I just realized I’ve yet to post anything of Christmas or our holidays, but people have been wondering about my house. I only have “before” pictures and then a video of the after, but after our move with all our boxes. I’ll have to take some after pictures once we settle in. I was only going to post the video, but I think to appreciate the video fully, you have to see all the work we did to change this place. This post is dedicated to Shauntae, because she’s the only one who comments, and I know she’ll see and enjoy it. 🙂


Living room

The kitchen, and an Eden who was running around.


Wall in family room. (Our desk is on this wall in the video.)


The fireplace.


The back door in the family room. Only half the blinds are there. That’s not us, not closing the window.


The “bar” and hallway.


The downstairs bathroom.


The parrot window above the front door. We felt like we were taking down their like family flag or symbol when we removed it.

A better picture of the parrot window. At night, this thing shined so bright when the entry light was on.

Hallway to the sewing and library.




Library closet and door to hallway.


Sewing room


Girls’ room. It was OK for a kids room, but not what they wanted.

Hallway leading to master bedroom.

We haven’t done anything to the master bedroom. I’m waiting to paint and change it till we get some sort of style going for it. I’m not much of a decorator, or I haven’t had much space to decorate, so we didn’t spend lots of money on furniture in the old house. We were kinda poor for a while, while we were having to buy our furniture.

Here’s the video tour of the house and it’s many changes. We re-floored the entire house, and have painted most of it. It was lots of work, but transformed it and was totally worth it.

I have been making my bed each day, and am trying to close all the shelves and drawers. 🙂

    Oh my goodness, the transformation is spectacular! I’m so glad you put up the before pictures. I definitely LOVE the new flooring. The paint colors you chose are wonderful, (my favorite is the color in the school room) and the house just looks amazing. I can’t believe the amount of work you’ve put into your new home!!
    You are the sweetest, thanks for dedicating this post to me. 🙂 I’ll get working on a video for y’all of our place.

    It looks great. You know, if you invite us over, I could help unpack (a little). Mostly, I’d just like to see the final result… 😀

    Wow! The house looks great. I love what you did with the fireplace, and well all of it. I never really do understand some of the style choices previous owners make. Good luck on getting those boxes out of your sewing room!
