The Wish List: Before Photos

I have been excited about posting before & after photos of our new house... we haven't gotten to the "after" part in too many areas. We have only painted as of yet.

I have a long list of "to-do's". Not sure how long they will take to be accommplished, but I am sure it will be some time. Here is my list in photos.

New Counters and backsplash.

Change all of the hardware to...

This hardware

Paint and refurnish all of the cabinets

New floors. Wood. This is in the kitchen and dining room.

This wall has gotta go! My living room/dining room/kitchen will become open concept!

This is number 1. I never knew I could just want a simple shower curtain! It is hard to clean, hard to bathe Hudson, and if I hit my shin one more time...

This brick wall in the basement. Brick by its self- unique and cool. Brick with large, arched, weird mirrors- umm no thanks. We are thinking about doing a wood wall.

Guest bathroom. Needs lots of help! Counter top...

Paint and add new hardware to the vanity...

New floors...

... and paint. Really thankful all the guest bath needs is cosmetic.

Hope the "afters" come sooner than later!



  1. good luck!!! i'm not a fan of exposed brick but i'd honestly just paint it white... and maybe cover up the weird arch thing with a big contemporary frame! good luck!! i know it's weird, but i want our next house to be a fixer upper (cosmetically).. it's hard with a new build because we have to put so much money into things like hardware, window fixtures for the entire house, good closet shelving and all the dumb little stuff you don't think about til you don't have it! lol Can't wait to see what you come up with!

  2. Yay, yay, yay!!! I can't wait to see what you do! Hurry it up. I need to live vicariously through your upgrades :)
