We love our little house. We bought it almost 5 years ago and when we first saw it, we loved the possibilities it had but we didn’t necessarily love the 1970’s wood paneling, the awful fake wood floors, the not so lovely teapot wall paper, or even the 1980’s kitchen, but we loved the space, the huge back yard, and the quiet cul-de-sac. We loved it. I’ll admit, I pictured moving in and doing the updating right away, but being married to a very budget minded man, I quickly realized that my plans would be put on hold for a
very long time. I waited (not so) very patiently, and finally the day came when we decided it was time to spend what we saved up and get some of the renovations done. YA HOO!!
We aren’t visionaries or decorators so it was a bit nerve-wracking to make the decisions, but we love the results. So without further ado . . . Here are some before and after pictures of our casita.
So, what do you think? How did the two non-decorators do? We are pretty thrilled with the results and these few changes make it seem like a totally new house. Ahhhh.
Part two will show the renovations to our bathroom. The floors are done, the wallpaper is down. We just need to paint which is our least favorite task ever. So, hopefully soonish I will be posting part two with pictures of the completed bathroom.
Oh, and the bonus picture of the day is what was under the old ugly kitchen floor. Imagine it with the dark wood paneling. Boom shaka laka laka!
And so it begins!
