Our Home

Welcome to our beautiful home on the corner of Main St.

Kevin and I fell in love with this 1920’s colonial the moment we saw it on-line, we put an offer in a few short days later, and we waited eight months to get the offer accepted by the bank (read a little more about the beginning here)!  We are so happy we waited, and it was well worth the wait.

Here is how our lovely home looked when we moved in:

And more recently:

Come inside and see the foyer…

Entryway

We haven’t done anything to the foyer as of yet.  You can see one of our three beautiful vintage chandeliers here.

To the right is our living room (which is also how it was when we moved in):

Our Living Room

We have a lot to do in the living room…all in due time I suppose.

To the left of the entryway is the dining room (read more here and here):

"dining room"

All we have done in this room is add some chairs:

wood table and white chairs

The Current Dining Room

Hopefully we will be painting and putting up molding very soon!

Next is the kitchen…which needs a lot of work also:

Eating Area

The eating area overlooks the sunroom (you can see the old window treatment in there that are falling down…oops).  Here is what the sunroom looked like when we moved in:

Sunroom BEFORE

The above photo was taken right before we took up that DIRTY carpet (yuck).  And here is what was underneath:

Lovely "wood" tile

After painting and a new carpet, the current room can be seen here (definitely a blank canvas):

Our Sunny Room, Almost AFTER!

On the first floor we also have a 1/2 bath that we painted “Sea View” Blue:

Now we can head upstairs…

Here is our smallest bedroom (which you can read about here and here):

And here is the second bedroom/guest room (another work in progress):

And it’s current state (with a little bit of color):

Here is our full bathroom (read about that here, here, and here)…

And lastly, here is our Master Bedroom (read about that here, here, here, and here) {which is Almost done}:
