Wow! It's been 3 weeks since I blogged! I can't believe it! Time seems to be flying lately. I feel like I've done tons of projects the last month but haven't had much time to blog about them. But I have been taking lots of pictures of them so they will be up on here soon:) The biggest news around here is that we put our house up for sale! Do you know anyone looking for a good starter home in the Davis County area? It's been a great house for us! Click here if you'd like to see the details:) If not, here's a quick tour!
Here's our front yard. When we were looking at buying this house, we loved that it had big, mature trees in the front and back yard.
We also loved the cute red brick and white shutters.
We liked that it has a white picket fence and a long driveway for playing basketball:)
Here's a view of the back yard. We love how big and spacious it is
(.23 acres, big for a starter home in this area)!
When we bought the house only a few of the windows had been replaced and that was about 30 years ago:) So we put all new vinyl windows in.
We put this patio in last summer and have really enjoyed it! So much better than the mud pile that used to be here:)
Tony put the swing on our big maple tree. It is by far Max's favorite thing in the back yard!
Tony also added a fire pit in our big garden area.
Lots of room to run and play:)
Now for the inside.....this is our living room. When we moved in everything was painted a neutral color. One of the first things we did was paint the wall red. Then Tony surprised me one weekend by putting up the board-n-batten, which I love! The original color of the fireplace was a sandstone brown/orange, but it was painted black before we moved in, which I love!
Here's the dining area. We really like the big open windows, especially the bay window. I made almost all my curtains from sheets since I couldn't find any curtains I liked:)
We've done quite a bit of work to the kitchen. The island was not originally there. Tony was so sweet and built it for me for Christmas the first year we moved in. Now it's my favorite thing in the kitchen and gives me so much more counter space! We also re-stained and scored the cabinets. Then Tony added crown molding to the top of them. It originally had a stainless steel sink but we replaced it with this white one I found at Restore for $20. Then we added a new bronze finish facet from Home Depot.
This is Max's room which has now become the boys room:)
I made the sports pictures above the crib out of my dad's old shirts.
This is the master bedroom.
Here's the bathroom. We re-tiled the shower and put in a taller shower head so we didn't have to squat when we wash our hair:)
This is our family room downstairs. The ceiling and two outside walls are not finished. The ceiling used to be really ugly wood so we sanded it and painted it white. It looks much better and makes it feel cleaner. Since the ceiling was exposed, we had all of the original plumbing replaced! Yeah!!!
We even had enough room to squeeze in Tony's dream--a pool table:)
This is our music/guest room downstairs.
And this is my sewing/craft/guest room that I love!
Wow! I cannot believe all we have done to our house in only a few years. It sure has been fun! Who knows if our house will sell or not? It's kind of a bitter-sweet thing for sure!!!
