Welcome to our home!
When we first moved in the cabinets were dark wood and the counter top was brick red laminate. We painted the cabinets, added a granite counter top and installed hard wood floors. We loved the updates, but space was still a problem
The changes to the kitchen were amazing! We now had enough room for an island and dining area. We continued by widening the entry into the family room making the kitchen, dining are and family one open spacious place for entertaining.
I am so glad we decided to add three windows in the dining room. It brings in so much light!
We can actually cook at the same time and still have room to move around.
Dining Room Before
The dining room was special to me. The table, chairs and buffet were the first pieces of furniture I refinished. We loved the room, but like in the kitchen space was a problem.
Dining Room After
Unlike our previous dining room, we eat here almost every night!
Plenty of room for a big crowd!
I am very happy I was able to keep the table and buffet that I refinished so many years ago!
Years ago, when we had wainscoting added, it muffled the sounds in the rest of the house. This room became a go to place for my husband and I to away from all the hustle and bustle of the rest of the house!
During the renovation, a few things were changed in family room. The window used to be sliding glass doors. We also removed bead board wainscoting and added a much needed ceiling light.
Bonus Areas Added During Renovation:
I asked my readers to help pick out my wallpaper. The majority picked this one and I could not be happier!
I picked this chandelier up in a garage sale for five dollars. I kept it, hoping I could use it someday; and that day came!
Because, it was a small area. We opted for a shelf rather than a furniture piece to keep it open and airy.
This started out as a frame I found at an antique store. I refinished it and added a mirror.
I found this utility sink at an antique store and refinished it.
We built shelves for all the footwear. No more shoes at the front door!
The wallpaper, makes it a happy place to do laundry!
We now have a place for food, back stock and all my entertaining items.
Having an office is amazing. I can close the door and really get to work!
