Brown To Grey

 Take a look at the make over our little house endured over the last couple of months... We are very proud and can't believe that our once orange house inside and out could be so nice!

 This comparison shot shows the tile floors that Rob installed years ago that we thought looked really good compared to the linoleum that was there before. The nearly orange tile went really well with the ugly brown closet doors.. what?! How could we have not seen how hideous that was!? Our Auntie Betty who works in the flooring department at Slegg Lumber where we got our new tiles and laminate urged us to get grey no matter what. Grey is in! We had our doubts but trusted her and oh my goodness, was she ever right! The difference is just shocking. I absolutely love it.

 This just shows the hallway going into the entryway and how well it blends. The doors to the right show where our old brown doors used to be that hide our washer and dryer. Looking pretty good!

  This comparison isn't really accurate because of the different angles and because the living room was a bit messier in the one photo. BUT- you can see the difference in the floors. Brown to grey.


 I mean, let's just take a minute to admire the differences in this room. It's just seriously So.Much.Better! I now love my bathroom and can't wait to finally soak in that tub in luxury!

It's just so inviting...

 This is where all the madness took place. The hot water tank would be to the left in that closet. The before picture is more of the hallway under construction but again it just goes to show how beautiful that area has now become. It is so much more inviting. I love it.

 I don't have any new photos of our bedrooms, but they didn't really change all that much. It really is all about the little things making all the difference. We've lived here for nearly ten years and there is this window in our living room that is yellow. It's very 70's retro and I've always disliked it. But Rob decided to make it look more appealing by painting inside trim white and adding on a newer, better trim to match all of our new trim throughout the entire house. What a difference!!

 Okay, okay now I'm getting a little out of hand with my comparison pictures. The point of this entire post is to show everyone what our newly renovated home looks like. We're super proud of all that we've accomplished over the many years in this house. There are so many memories made here that will never be forgotten. We're going to be busy in the next few weeks, doing grown up stuff. You've all been warned- I may not be able to come out and play for a little bit. But I'll be back regularly soon! If I don't comment on your posts it's because I'm grounded and doing my chores!

Love the new look! The grey is fabulous. It must be so nice to have all that stuff updated and so fresh. Definitely worth the wait. Too bad it had to happen the way it did but it definitely looks awesome. Even the yellow window. Surprising how little things can make such a big difference. :)
