Hi friends! Happy Sunday! I’ve been meaning to put this post together for a while now and finally got the pictures together to properly document it.

In 2008, Reid and I bought a house. An old, sad-looking house. I can still remember the smell of it just by looking at the ‘before’ pictures. Reid put in many, many hours in the months leading up to our wedding (June 2009) completely re-modeling it, inside and out, with help from family and friends.

When he was done, basically the only things left from the original house were the foundation, frame, and hardwood floors (refinished, of course). I don’t think an inch went untouched!

Here’s a look into our first house, before and after! The outside was redone as well but I’m not posting those pictures for security reasons.

Please ignore the random furnishings in this room…it was thrown together quickly for a guest and normally is just storage. Smile

It has changed a little bit… Winking smile Still a work-in-progress but I feel like we’re getting there! I have big plans for the office/den (including painting or pulling out the wood paneling) and the guest bedroom needs some furniture but we’ll get to it someday…I’ve found that my taste/style has been slowly evolving so it’s good to take things slowly when buying décor/furnishings.

Do you own a home? Any house projects going on?
