A Home Tour

I am so excited to have a lot of new readers, so I thought I would take you all on a little tour of our home.  So far, I have shown you most of the rooms in our house, but I'm holding out on showing you our third floor (playroom and guest room) because I still need to finish up some projects up there.  It won't be long.

Let's get going.  I'll start with the front of the house.  Be sure to check out the before pictures here.


Come on into the foyer.  Before pictures here. 


Off the foyer is the new and improved powder room. Before pictures here.


To the right of the foyer is the casual living room. This room has come a long way. Check out the before pictures here. 




Just off the living room is the office/den.  This room has become one of our favorite hang out spots.  See before pictures here.


These built-ins were already here, we just revamped them a bit.


Through the foyer, in the heart of the home, is the kitchen and dining room.  These two rooms got complete makeovers. See before pictures here.  







More before pictures here. 


Off the kitchen is the mudroom and pantry.  This room was previously a sun porch on the end of the house.


Having this space helps keep our family organized.


The pantry is a huge help with storage.


Just off the kitchen/dining room is the gathering place, our family room.  Before pictures here. 




The fireplace got a facelift as well.




This ceiling is one of my favorite features in our home. 


We spend a lot of time in this room, specifically gathered around this table, playing games, coloring, eating popcorn and building legos.



Now, let's head upstairs.

This is the master bedroom.  Before pictures here.


Down a little hall in the master bedroom is the master bathroom which was previously a small bedroom.  Before pictures here.





My daughter's room is across the hall.  It was formerly the master bedroom.  Before pictures here.






A small, but full bathroom is located off her bedroom. Before pictures here.


My boys' room is just down the hall.  It has quite a story behind it.  You can read all about it here.



Right next to their bedroom is bathroom they share.  Before pictures here


Hope you enjoyed the tour.  I am linking up to Poppies at Play Parade of Homes Party today.  Go on over and check out all the lovely homes.

Also, check back Monday night for my very first giveaway! I'll have all the details for you then.

  16. Your home is so gorgeous. I love the colours you have used and have to agree one of my favourite things is the wood ceiling in one of your rooms (your family room?). Did you install it yourself or was it there when you moved in?

  22. Do you have issues with a window in your shower? We have one above a double bathtub that I'd like to take out the bathtub and make it into a large walk in shower, but I'm worried about a. a window in my shower and b. it's durability with water. How is yours working out?

  23. Thanks for stopping by and liking my mudroom! Glad to have found you! Looks like we both bought scary houses and renovated them! Where do you live - looks like an East Coast house. We have the same bathtub and kitchen sink! Following you to see what else you've got in store!
