make me pretty – our old house for saleNovember 4, 2014
As happy as I am in our new house I am really sad to let go of our first home. This is the house that my husband and I bought about a year before we got married. We brought three babies home to this house!
It is also hard to let go of all the work we put into the house. When I look at the pictures of the house when we bought it, compared to how it looks now, I know we really put in a lot of effort.
Here are some before pictures:
Wow, that yellow!
Over the years, we painted every room, pulled up carpet upstairs and refinished the wood floors, pulled up carpet (burgundy!!) in the basement and put down tile, pulled up linoleum in the kitchen and sanded the original floor and painted a checkerboard pattern, pulled up linoleum in the first floor bathroom and put down slate tile, created a raised bed garden in the backyard and planted all kinds of pretty stuff, gutted the upstairs bathroom and pushed the wall back to make it bigger, added a full size closet to the master bedroom, installed a spiral staircase to the attic which we turned into a playroom, installed a built in desk under the basement stairs, built a railing and gate around the front porch, and refinished the wood floors on the first floor. I am exhausted just reading this list!
Here are some afters:
