Before & Afters

It was exceptionally weird starting my new routine in my new house this morning. I was so thrown off that I bounded out of bed at 6 a.m. when my alarm went off, happily showered and got ready for the day. 

Driving to work was an entirely new commute for me, and it felt strange, too. Like I was a visitor in my own city, and that I was playing "pretend" like a five-year old. 

But it's fun. And it's new. And it's different, but exciting.

Anyway, because this has been all-consuming from start to finish {and I know y'all are absolutely sick to death of me yammering on about the house}, I wanted to share with y'all some before and after photos. And I promise this will be it! We can go back to our regularly scheduled posts about food, life, friends, eating out, work, etc. :)

  1. It look so great! I love the bar cart in the dining room {and of course the chairs too!}. I really like the console in the living room too! Very cute! Oh, and the bathroom stripes are to die for.

    P.S. I love all of the changes you guys made, so I don't know what that nosy seller was thinking.
