The Official House Tour!

So you've seen bits and pieces but here it is in all it's glory- the OFFICIAL house tour. Here are all the "before's" finally accumulated in one space.

Come on in!

Lots of room for improvement once I grow a green thumb. Maybe some shrubbery, especially here:

Front Room- 

We call it the front room because it really doesn't have any purpose. When this house was originally built it was only 2 bed 1 bath, so this was the living room. As tiny as it is.

- We have removed all the carpet + tile underneath
- TSP'd (aka chemically clean), primed and painted the walls
- Leveled the floor

The only full bath. We love that pedestal sink!

- Primed the walls
- clean clean cleaned and cleaned some more

 And just in case you didn't get the color of the walls in here... hellooooo yellow:

The amazingly out dated kitchen...

- Removed all flooring
- Added stainless steel fridge
- Removed all wallpaper

Cute little eat in dining room. You might think that is the pantry door on the left but it is actually the hallway that goes through to the 2 bedrooms and full bath...

- Removed all wallpaper and added drywall
- Removed all flooring

Our living room. What you didn't know was that those walls are wallpapered on TOP of paneling. Yowza.

- Removed all flooring
- Added hardwood
- Removed all paneling and window trim
- Added drywall to the entire room
- Primed and painted
- Added a lovely leather couch

And our bedroom...

- Primed and painted
- Removed all flooring
- Added hardwood 

And the half bath attached to the master...

- Removed wallpaper
- Primed most of it... yes I got lazy.

Oh and of course the big seller for us: the backyard! We have already been fully utilizing the completely fenced in feature. And the 2.5 car garage has been nice since we are living in this project.

Other mentions:
Luci's bedroom, was a pink and purple princess theme is now a jungle theme and has lovely hardwood flooring.
Hallway, has been painted and primed, and hardwood was added.

So there you have it. It's been one crazy tale after another, but it's ours!
