House Tour - Before & After

Sometimes you just need to sit back and take score of how far you've come.


As I was scrolling through my hundreds of photos this morning, I thought it would be fun to do a post with photos to show the huge progress I've made on my house renovation project.  I've used the photos from the 2010 Realtor's ad as the before shots and recent photos to show how it looks now.


I hope you enjoy this tour as much as I did!  It was so nice to document my renovation journey all in one post!

Your house doesn't even look like that other one anymore. The changes have truly been a work of art. I love your color palette. I don't usually get jealous, but you have a workshop - so NOW I'm jealous. :(

Your home is beautiful! You have been a very busy girl! I love the simple, fresh style you have chosen. We live in a small home too and I found you when I was looking for some kitchen inspiration.

Art and Sand said...

It is absolutely amazing to see all the changes you have made.

Are you going to sell it and start all over again with another fixer upper? We know a lot of people who do that.

Well worth sitting back and enjoying, Anne. Your skill and creativeness are so inspiring. The more I see of your projects, the more I really want to try and use power tools, even if I do cut off a finger, Lol, but I am being seriuos!!

Elizabeth BlueClearSky said...

Your home has come a long way! It looks so fresh and updated now. I especially like your cute workshop.

Julie @ followyourheartwoodworking said...

Looks lovely, Anne. You have changed all the harsh colours to soft ones, I think just that makes a big difference. I don't remember seeing your cute workshop before, how nice is that?!

Andrea Hunter said...

Wow Anne! What an incredible amount of work you've done! Where to even begin with the comments? Your taste is impeccable and it all looks charming, just as a home should. Well done!

rush said...

Amazing! Talk about starting with a blank slate...going from absolutely no character to so much charm! Be proud!

Hmmmm. Pat yourself on the back every day for all the exceedingly charming renovations and decorating you have done. I love your color palette. I could move into your home and not have to change anything. Congratulations!

Laurie Dickson said...

JUST WOW! What a difference, one of the many details I love, how you've hung your curtains, it transforms the whole room! This house is so charming and is a HUGE reflection of you, fearless and amazing! Excellent job!

Reenie said...

WOW.... you do amazing work. I don't think I've ever seen the workshop. All so so cute. :)

A Joyful Cottage said...

My goodness, you really have come a long way. And inspired all of us with what you've accomplished, Anne. I remember finding your blog when you first painted the main bathroom and added chocolate brown accents. You lamented about the wall tile, but you successfully decorated around it then and even more so now. It, along with everything else in your sweet bungalow, looks great. Well done, my friend. ~ Nancy

Shauna@Satori Design for Living said...

Wow, it's such a difference! I love how you've injected your own personal style into each space. Just lovely!

ANNE said...

Fantastic job, Anne! I love how your workshop looks. It is so cheery and happy looking!

debra gould said...

All I can say is Wow! You have impeccable taste. Absolutely beautiful. Now I can see beyond the older homes with all the paneling. Love it!

ANNE said...

Thanks so much Debra! I know what you mean about paneling too, I've watched HouseHunters lately where there have been homes FULL of paneling and all I can think is how fabulous the paneling would look painted! Merry Christmas!
