BEFORE Photos of Our House

WE BOUGHT A HOUSE!!!! AHHH!!! Can you tell I’m excited? πŸ™‚ IMG_7319 It has been a long, stressful, overwhelming, exciting and crazy road, but we are so thrilled to finally say that we are homeowners! I have been dreaming of the day when I can customize, design and put my stamp all over a house and that time has come!! After looking at house after house since the beginning of April, we stumbled upon our 1975 brick ranch, just before I was about to throw the house hunting towel in. The moment I saw it…I knew. Just like I knew when I saw my wedding dress for the first time! I envisioned us in this house, living life, making memories and I immediately had a vision for what it COULD be. One word…POTENTIAL. That is the one word I kept using when we saw the house for the first time! It’s our little diamond in the rough that I cannot wait to shine up and make pretty!Β It has 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, an unfinished garage room that we want to turn in to something cool and a great big backyard. Now, for some lovely BEFORE photos! Get ready for a lot of not-so-exciting pictures. (we had already started the carpet removal process when I took these photos..) Welcome to our home! View when you open the front door. You walk right into the living room which is open to the dining room. IMG_1165 One of the reasons this house caught our attention was this living room. Open concept, vaulted ceilings with beams, amazing natural light and a brick fireplace! IMG_1167 IMG_1168 Front door IMG_1234 View from living room towards the dining room IMG_1243 Dining room. Doors lead to backyard. IMG_1172 Hallway IMG_1175 First bedroom on the left will be the guest bedroom. Nothing exciting here, beige walls, beige carpet..basically a beige box! Haha IMG_1177 Hall bathroom is the first door on the right of the hallway complete with gold brass and peel and stick tiles! IMG_1181 IMG_1183 IMG_1187 Last door on the left of the hallway is another bedroom, which, for the time being will be Stephen’s office/music room. **Note: Don’t you love all of the beautiful light fixtures they left for us πŸ˜‰ IMG_1188 View from the bedroom, looking back towards the hallway. IMG_1192 Back of the hallway looking back at the living room. IMG_1196 Master bedroom is the last door on the right of the hallway. IMG_1198 View standing in the master bedroom. Hallway door to the right, closet, and on-suite bathroom..(although I don’t think I would call this a master suite at this point in time) ha! IMG_1201 Master bathroom IMG_1203 Master shower..eeekkk IMG_1206 The kitchen is to the right of the dining room. I love that it has windows above the sink! The whole house has great natural light which is something I look for in a space! IMG_1221 IMG_1216 Standing in the kitchen, looking back towards the dining room IMG_1217 IMG_1220 The day after we closed on our house, we were itching to make some progress, so I put Stephen to work! πŸ˜‰ He ripped out all of the carpet in the living room/dining room/hallway! Such a freeing experience ripping out carpet! Goodbye carpet, please don’t come back! IMG_1207 One last view. Probably my favorite view. Standing in the dining room looking back toward the living room. Kitchen to the left and hallway to the right. IMG_1211 IMG_7317 If you want to follow along with our transformation, I will be sharing the entire process here! xoxo, O

    Perfect house for yall! Those beams! And call me crazy, but I dig the bead board paneling- painted a great neutral color or something? Texture, sister. And getting rid of carpet is just good for one’s mental health.

    Start video recording and maybe you can air your remodeling on HGTV someday 😊
