Kitchen After Paint

Renovations in Review

December 20, 2013 0 Comments

Since we moved in this past summer, we have been relentlessly making over our new home.

The first few weeks in our home were spent painting everything in sight! We painted walls, trim, wainscoting, cabinets…





Dining Room:

Living Room:


Guest Room:

Then we fenced in our yard, planted 13 trees and shrubs, and tilled up most of it to make it level.. now we pray they will stay healthy and grow big!  The next phase of our yard plan is to plant grass this spring, build a patio and pergola, and put in a vegetable garden.


We also managed to painted our bonus room before Thanksgiving and are well on our way to making it a zen mediation/yoga retreat with a small office area. (I wish I had taken the After photos during the day for comparison; the walls are truly more creamy than yellow, but oh well!)  Eventually, we will replace the carpet and get around to organizing the decorations.

Our next big project is installing new laminate hard wood floors on our first level.  We hope to have this finished before New Year’s day!  We’ll be busy bees over the holidays. 🙂



I'm Rose. Nice to meet you! :) I'm a Southern transplant from the Northeast. I have two fur baby pups, Pippa and Watson, and the best partner a girl could ever ask for, Paul. I'm a believer of making the most of every moment. As much as I might try to slow down, busy seems to me my word. I'm a busy person, with a busy mind, and a ever growing list of things to do, places to go, books to read, recipes to make, and things to learn! I started this blog in the winter of 2013 as a way to allow family and friends {800+ miles away} to be a part of our lives. It's also served as a creative outlet for me to share projects, photos, travel, passions, thoughts, and a couple recipes. Being a first time home owner, we've been on a quest to transform our cookie cutter house into a home. ❤ I hope you enjoy this creative space.
