Befores & Afters- Our Home ♥

As promised, this post is going to show you a bunch of befores and afters of our home! It looks us 3 months and we did everything but the carpet ourselves (thanks to my dad and my amazing fiance!...and me of course!)

My favorite for last....The KITCHEN BEFORES!

Kitchen AFTERS! (this was RIGHT after they brought our counters, all cleaned up and decorated now, will update pic later!)

Thanks so much for looking! I will update the pictures as I find time to take them! Things have been changing constantly as we get more comfortable. The sofa has already been repositioned and we have only been in for a month!We still have the 3 bathrooms to finish, we should be getting to them sooner than later!

We got our home!

We did it! We are FINALLY in our home! We waited 7 months on the short sale, and settled on September 19th 2012. Then the renovations started! We were able to move into out home Dec 29th! We are so incredibly happy with the progress, and are IN LOVE with our newly renovated 1988 home! When you walk in, you would never guess what it looked like when we bought it!

My next blog post will show pictures of the before and after transformation. Keep in mind, we are still not done. Because this is our first place, we did not have any furniture or kitchen items. We got done the big things first, now we are starting to fill in our gaps!

This has been such an amazing experience and if you have time, patience, and money...I would recommend taking an old home and making it new again!

With love,
