Love this thread! So many beautiful and inspiring homes.

You'll have to excuse the terrible iphone pictures. They're all I've got to work with right now.

The living room before
And "after." Nothing is ever really done in any house I live in.
chair wall
TV wall

There's another side to the room, behind the camera, but it's not even close to finished. I did this whole room (with the exception of the $400 couch that we've had for a few years) for $165.

I'm kicking myself for not taking a before of the 1/2 bathroom, but here is the after.
cieling

The walls were (are) paneled in some bizarre mustard colored laminate that's glued to the plaster walls, so I left them up and painted them a very light grey. The "far" wall used to have an old metal upper cabinet covered in metallic contact paper. When I removed it, I realized that someone cut a major corner and decided not to panel back there, so I just hung a curtain on a tension rod to cover it.
This makeover was entirely free. The paint was leftover from my office, the china cabinet was repurposed from the dining room, and all of the accessories were just lying around waiting for a home.

Thanks for looking!
I'll post more rooms with better pictures as we finish them.


ETA: That is NOT my stuff in the "before."

Yay for pics of ChristyMarie's house! .

I'm glad I just happened to click on this thread.

I love your DS's bedroom and bathroom, and bet the rest of your home is just as lovely.

Here's mine. We're still "moving in": adding paint and art and our own touches. But it's small and it's totally perfect for us.

Welcome!

A little nook above the entryway and coat closet:

A space at the top of the stairs that will become a reading nook, when I hang a lamp and add a magazine rack for books:

The ledge by the stairs, DH's toddler shoes:

Boogiemonster, your house looks breathtaking!!! (I dunno why, but that exclamation sounds humorous )

Boogiemonster, love that rocking chair! Wow. So cute.

Very nice photos, thanks for sharing!
post #831 of 1163
Thanks, mamas!

ChristyMarie, my FIL made the rocker, out of teak plaques he'd received during his career. He is amazing.

gorgeous homes!


I have to say though-if I decluttered my whole home, it'd still never look show room fantabulous. :

These are from 2009 but are clean spaces in our last apartment

kitchen sink

living room
http://i1031.photobucket.com/albums/.../JULY08435.jpg

We've since moved and had another baby so the de-cluttering has been on the back burner and I need to start again.

this year-dd's closet, de cluttered (there was a ton of clothes she couldn't wear anymore and scattered toys and A LOT of stuffed animals)

(toys are in the bins: dolls, ds toys and ds2 toys. dd pj's in the clear container)

Hey Boogiemonster!

I love seeing photos of your new digs. You have it all set up so nicely. I am glad I popped in to check out this thread when I did. I love the tricycle and your DH's shoes.

Awesome!

And, really, how many places can you post a picture of your kitchen sink and have it truly appreciated?

I love that rocking chair too! Your FIL could make lotsa money selling those.

This is my favorite thread ever on MDC! And I'm going to post some pics for the first time. This is what I've been doing for the past two days. I'll add more pics of my house as I get through the rooms.

Here's my family room (just off the kitchen):
Before (it's so bad!!)
After

Kitchen Counter:

Bathroom on main floor:

Bathroom counter/cabinet:
Before
After (Instead of constantly picking up magazines from the floor, I decided to stop fighting it and give them a proper place!)

Tell the truth, you just threw it all behind the shower curtain.

Very nice! I absolutely love the color of the bathroom.

I have done that, but not this time!

Actually, our cat's food bowls are in the bath tub so the dog doesn't get to it. (That shower is only used when guests are staying over.)
