Renovations in Our Historic Home From 2009 to 2011.

Hey there!

It's been just over four years since John and I bought our house, and besides getting married (and getting our pooch, Manny), it was one of the best decisions we've made as a couple. So, come on in a take a random photo-tour of our place. This isn't just any 'old photo-tour, however. This is a tour of the places in our home that I want to revamp and spruce up in 2012.

In efforts to make these photos as 'real' as possible, you'll notice that I didn't really clean up. I read some pretty wonderful blogs where people take readers on fantastic photo-tours of their impeccable homes. You ain't gonna find that here, hun. So, dear friends, help me out here and shoot me an email or leave a comment with some ideas to spruce up my not-so-impeccable spaces.

Anyhow, come on in. You don't even have to take your shoes off!

Spare bedroom - right now.
It was a child's room when we moved in. Think Thomas the Train meets... I don't know, something bad. Right now we are about 70% happy with the way this room is turning out.

You'll see there are no real changes here. And that's why I still hate my bathroom.
Help me. Send backup! SOS!

I really need to do something with this space in our bathroom. And although I could have shared a before photo, it was far too embarrassing. Sorry guys, I can't be that real. 
Dining room when we moved in. 

Dining room today.
Sorry about the lighting.
This room really is one of the brightest in our home. I love our dining room!
If only we ate in there. *sigh*

Master bedroom, on our moving day. Pardon the mess.

I'm not going to show you our master bedroom "after", since it's an absolute mess. And my husband and a growling dog are nested up there and have no intentions of leaving this early.


Here's the view from the street. Everything looks a little crispy and brown. You can thank Mother Nature. 

I'll update this post as we change things up in 2012, until then - - ENJOY!
