The Happy House Tour

For the past 8 months we have been very busy trying to make our new house feel like it is ours. We have made progress but still have a lot more to do. And that is fine with us because we LOVE house projects. So, without further ado welcome to our happy home, the tour.

(Most of the before pictures are the listing pictures so they aren’t really true to what was here when we moved in. The entire house had been repaint tan and the carpet had been replaced but in our hurry to move in and unpack I didn’t take very many pictures.)

Kitchen - Before
                                     
 Kitchen - After 
 
Kitchen Wish List: Replace appliances with stainless steel, update countertops, update backsplash, and paint the cabinets white.

 Dinning Room - Before
Dinning Room -After
 
Dinning Room Wish List: Do something with the big window behind the table, do something with the window on the back door, and add a fun center piece/tablescape.

Living Room - Before
Living Room - After
Living Room Wish List: This room is done (for now).  I am pretty happy with how it came together.
  
Master Bedroom - Before
Master Bedroom - After
Master Bedroom Wish List: Headboard, window treatments, paint, maybe new bedding and new art work for the walls.

Paisley's Room
 

Ryder's Room
 
Both Paisley's and Ryder's rooms are a bit of a moving target.  I like to rearrange/reorganize often to maximize space and accommodate new furniture/toys that may find their way into our house.     

Current Project: Bookshelves (kind of like the one Toby made at the Topeka house) 
We have an empty area in between the kid’s bedrooms that we are turning into a library so the plan is to have two walls of shelves for books and collectibles, a comfy place to read and a gallery wall (pictures coming soon).  I am sooo excited for this project to be done!!!  I can’t wait to start enjoying that room.
