The Homemade Roost is getting a Makeover

Before & After Home Redo

Okay I don’t know how else to do this but be ready for about a million pictures 🙂
Our house closed yesterday and I figured well it’s now or never to post those before and after pictures of our house. It’s crazy to me to think that this time last year I was painting my guts out– I seriously painted every surface of that house- and it was fun, I really enjoyed making it look better- There was a lot of stuff that we could’ve done even more to it but it wouldn’t have been worth it we would have never seen a reimbursement of that money so I think we did a good amount and I really hope the people who move in really enjoy and love it.

it’s a sad sad day though– I never took a pic of the kitchen with our new table and at least decorated a little bit 🙁

Don’t you just love those maroon blinds 🙂 yes yes sadly they had to go


Don’t you absolutely love the Mnt. Dew basement– I’m guessing they just really loved Mt. Dew green 🙂 Dave so wanted to paint a Mnt.Dew Logo on the wall but I said umm no.

now on to the upstairs….

Bryn’s room actually went though the most paint colors (but didn’t it have awesome ronald mcdonald colors at first :))– first I painted it pink-ugh to bright of a color than light blue turned out to white and finally I just painted it to match the rest of the house when we put it on the market 🙂



We did do the front landscaping a little bit but alas I never took a pic– ya sometimes I get lazy 🙂

And that is the tour of a yr of my life 🙂

    Wow! Looks great! Your blog inspires me! What color tan did you use throughout the house. It has just the right contrast with the white without being too dark or too light. We painted a tan in our kitchen but I think it’s a little on the light side.
    Congrats on closing on your home. I look forward to seeing your next projects at your future home!ReplyCancel

    What an amazing transformation a little bit of paint can make. In you master bath, did you replace the vanity or just paint the wood?ReplyCancel

  • show off! you do know it looks a million times better. Except for the mountain Dew basement. Seriously that would have been my dream room…if only I could get a dance pole in there…I kid, I kid…You guys did a terrific job!ReplyCancel

    Looks so great! Our house is now officially on the market. We are praying to have a happy blog post announcing a closing too.

    It’s so much work! No wonder not everyone stages their house. Online articles make it sound so easy to just “add a fresh coat of neutral paint” but it’s not so easy to get a project finished before someone needs their bum wiped or proclaims they are starving. And it’s not so easy to keep the toddler from stepping in the paint tray… they don’t mention all that.

    Anyway, we sure hope you LOVE your new home as much as I’m sure your buyers LOVE theirs.

I am obsessed with your kitchen makeover, it gave me some ideas for my little renovation I have planned. Thanks for sharing and inspiring with your blog!ReplyCancel
