It’s against my nature to post after pics of our house, because it feels unfinished. I’ve come to the realization that it will never be totally “finished” in my eyes. There’s also a factor of “decision fatigue”. I don’t want to just pick things out to get it over with, I’d rather LOVE what I choose. We’ve still got a ways to go, but have been enjoying it so much!
Without further ado…please enjoy PHASE 1 of our remodel.
Swipe the pics to see the change.

Our current “dining room” situation. I just can’t bring myself to put a table in there yet. 🙂 Partly because I haven’t found one I love, partly because it’s an awesome dance floor.

My favorite part of this remodel by far has been the mantle our friend Wes created for us! He framed up this faux wall, and then installed this gorgeous beam with corbels that he made. He makes all kinds of things from cabinetry, to furniture! Check him out– WV Woodworks.
I found these chandeliers on Shades of Light. Sometimes you can find a sweet coupon code on their Facebook page! There are a ton of great options on this site.
You would think it’s easy to pick out a white paint color… nope! So many varying shades, tones, and temperatures. We settled on Sherwin William’s “Incredible White” for the walls. It’s got great warmth and brightnesss, without feeling too sterile. For the trim we used Sherwin Williams’ “Perfect Greige”. Our floors are from Lowe’s. They truly look and feel like wood, at a fraction of the price. Highly reccommend.
I’ve been searching for an oriental rug for years. They can be pricy, and I wanted ours to be perfect. This 35 year old rug on Ebay was under $400, arrived in 3 days, and I could not be happier! They had a ton of great options in all different sizes.
Thanks for reading! 🙂 Will be posting more pictures soon.
