Our New House- Before and After

This post has been a long time coming…

We have loved living in our new place. A place that is finally our own is so nice. We don't even mind the three story walk with groceries… at least not too much. ;) 

We've put a lot of work and love into our new home. Micah changed out a lot of light fixtures, door knobs, and he built the bay window bench with our brother-in-law Josh. I love it!

Our house is not perfect yet. There are still plenty of things we want to get, decorate, organize, but we're finally at a point that I can say we are officially settled in. It's been fun to decorate, but wow!, this place sure has a lot of wall space. I will definitely need some more things/ideas to put on the walls.

The kitchen, dining room, and front room:




The front entryway:

The hallway: (We still need to replace all of the doorknobs and eventually even the hinges.)

Lila's bedroom: (I used her decorations from one of our old homes. I still need a few more things, including paint.)

Brighton's bedroom: (I still need to decorate his room.)

Our bedroom- minus the bathroom and closet: (I have no idea when I'll ever get to decorating our space, but we are getting night stands and lamps next month probably. I will also be making a headboard… eventually. ;) )

Closet, guest bathroom, laundry room, pantry: (This stuff is really hard to photograph. You can't tell the sizes of the rooms, but they're big and we're really happy with them.) 

I didn't take a picture of our balcony, storage space, or garage, but you get the idea.

We love our new home! For this month I can definitely say I am thankful for my home.


  1. It looks huge!

    We have that same IKEA bed (Lila's) for both kids. Can't beat that price!
