Before and After ~ The House

My house originally came with lovely blick-brown carpet that hadn't been cleaned in years, uninspiring dirty-white walls and a boring kitchen with depressing, ugly tile. I haven't done a lot since move-in, but I had to make a few changes to make it livable.

Well, I exaggerate. It was livable, I just knew that once I got all my stuff unloaded there was no way I'd have the time, energy or motivation to tackle the big projects.

So I did the basics -- new floors, new paint and new tile in the kitchen. The rest is ongoing.

(oh, sorry for the picture quality - when I took these I didn't know I'd be writing about this adventure :) )

OK - time to tackle something new!

Wow! What a difference! You've done so much work. Good for you. The yellow tile in the kitchen is so sweet and vintage. Love it!
