This is the start of the before and after phase and it will probably go on forever! lol
I’m just going to post all of the before’s from the great room area in this post to give an idea of what I’m working with. I’ll hit the other rooms in future posts, so check back frequently! Right now I have the “basic” quick fix after’s complete, but the little details, decor and changes I really want to do are going to have to come in stages. I mean, unless someone has a secret to how I can hire a magical elf with millions of dollars and works over night, this will take a while. Of course the ideas I have keep me up at night, but my job (I’m a Pilates instructor), lack of time & money will keep me from getting anything done quickly.
I have big, big plans and have to learn (Still!) to take it a day at a time. So I guess what I’m saying is the afters you will see in the next few posts will look totally different in another 6-12 months! If you want to see some before and after’s of our last house, venture down a way and you’ll see those posts. The transition from “old world” to soft cottage/farmhouse look/takes forever!
