first peek at our house!

We have been spending every extra minute of time at the house this week-- painting like crazy. I love watching the house transform into our own space. But as much as I am enjoying this process, my arms hurt and I will be thankful when I no longer come home with paint in my hair.

Here is a brief look into the downstairs of the house. I took these pictures right after we got the keys so there is no painting done yet. I promise I'll show you the after pictures soon.

Entry Way and Stairs

I loooove the arched doorways.

More living room

And I love that we have a fireplace, and that we've already used it!

We have a lot of plans to continue to transform the house into our own, but for now painting is our biggest project. Plus, house renovations are expensive. So we're taking our time on making changes, but don't think we don't already have it planned out. Here are our first five projects:
  • New kitchen counter tops and flooring
  • Add an island in the kitchen
  • New storm doors for the whole house
  • Completely renovate the master bathroom
  • Add a deck to the backyard
As you can tell we've got big plans and most of them are big projects, so we'll be completing them slowly over the next few years. As for now though, I am so so pleased with how the painting has turned out and I can't wait to share it all with you. Plus, I can't wait to move it! Only eight more days!

Hope you have a fabulous Friday!
