Making a house our home

Posted on: March 24, 2010

We have been in our new house not quite three weeks and things are coming along quite nicely! We had all the trim and cabinets painted white along with having a few rooms as well. Here are some before and afters:


You know it’s my kitchen when beans are cooking on the stove and tortillas are rising in the Kitchen Aid!

Love it! Can’t wait to see it in person πŸ™‚ You guys did a grea job and I definitely love the white cabinets and trim!

i like how you finally admitted that the “School room” now doubles as a toy room as well. you kept saying “school room” and i walked in on sunday and saw all those toys and thought “my kids are gonna want to do school at your house!” πŸ™‚ looks very homey πŸ™‚

Wow! It is so spacious, and the house colors are so nice! The office looks great!!!

Impressive! If we ever buy a house, I’d like your advise on how to decorate! You did an amazing job, especially considering you have two lil’ ones!

Looks like the girls will have lots of room to run around! Your office area looks really great!
