Our Home Then and Now

We moved in to our place about three years ago and we’ve worked hard to make our house a home.  Shown below are now and then pictures.  The “before” pictures were taken a week or two after we moved in and the “after” pictures were taken today.

I hope you like what we’ve done!

My Old Bedroom

My old bedroom at my parents’ house went un-lived in for 10 years and it started to turn in to a storage space.  It was painted a greyish lavender after I moved out but my mom thought it make the room look too dark and she was ready to clean the space up and get it ready to use as a guest room.  That’s where I come in!

I bought some pictures, made curtains, picked out some paint, and got to work.  With the help of my mom, we completely made over the space in 7 hours.  Here are the before and after pictures.


My mom painted the picture hanging above the dresser

Before_After1 Before_After3The paint we used is “Silver Marlin” by Behr and is a light grey color.  The curtains are “Suzani Slub Yellow/White” by Premier Prints.  There’s no bed yet, but we’ll get one in there soon.


There was a hawk in our yard this weekend.  Originally he was super close, but as soon as I took out my camera, he flew to a tree.  Here’s the best picture I was able to get:
