befores and afters

Mar 1, 2010 by

the bulk of my time over the past few years has been dedicated not only to raising my two beautiful children but also to revitalizing my 150 year old cape with the help of my handy husband. when i first saw this house, dave and i were driving by it on our way back from looking at another house. elias was almost 6 months old, and we were starting to grow out of the condo we were living in. so we called the number on the for sale sign, and learned the house had actually been taken off the market. we figured it was way out of our league anyway, but later that day the realtor called back and said the owner would be willing to put it back on the market if we were serious.

the rest is history, God-style. we sold our condo in less than 24 hours after it was put on the market, even though there were 5 others for sale in our complex. We made an offer that was accepted, an although this house is far more than we could have ever thought of owning, it sureee needed (needs) a lot of cosmetic work!

well, if you’re me it does.

and so i’m beginning what i call “before and afters” to give you a peek at the transformations. there are oh so very many, though we haven’t actually put a lot of money into the house, really. a little paint or decor…some new hardware or furnishings can go a long way. i’m no interior decorator, i just know what i like (and it’s not ugly wallpaper or bad light fixtures).

i hope you’ll all enjoy the transformations as much as i have. volume 1 will be our bedroom. stay tuned!
