Before and After: One Year House Anniversary

I cannot believe it, but ONE YEAR (and two weeks) has managed to fly by since we moved to this house August 1, 2010!  We love this neighborhood and our lot, and saw great potential in this basic and boring colonial.  So far with the power of paint we've managed to brighten up the space exponentially.

Down the road we hope to take on some major projects:  finishing the basement, refinished/replacing flooring, combining the kitchen and dining rooms into one large space,  and utilizing unfinished space over our garage for a master bedroom closet and home office to name a few.  While we feel like we still have mountains to move around here, looking back at where we started is encouraging, gratifying and fun!

Here's a look at our some of our interior before-and-afters so far!














I hope to add our mudroom and laundry room to the "after" list soon!

Here's to the power of paint!


I'm happy to be joining:
