We got the house!! It’s only been about a week and a half since we closed but we have made some big changes already. It was a steal for sure because the owners live in another state and didn’t want to do any of the cosmetic changes. So they left dirty carpets, yucky paint, and tons of dings and wear/tear. So we’re pretty much changing everything.
I adore before and after pictures on all the design and DIY blogs so I”m definitely sharing the updates with you all.
We’ve gotten the gutter fixed and the fence up as well as the whole house powerwashed. They made a huge difference and while we have a ton of landscaping to do at the end, it looks way better already.
But the biggest thing we’ve done is started the painting. It’s amazing how much a fresh coat of paint really changes a room. Everything is brighter and cleaner and the house looks years younger already!
My favorite so far is the living room, which looked like this before:
We tested a BUNCH of colors (we have a huge bag filled with at least 30 paint sample containers in various colors now!) all over the house. Here were the color choices for the living room (there are four more on the sides you can’t even see because they are so light):
SO happy with the way it turned out. Our living room feels bigger and brighter…can’t wait to furnish and decorate!
