I’ve been taking a ton of pictures while we do this whole house renovation thing and since things are really starting to feel ‘finished’ in a few places I thought I’d share a few photos.First up, the front door and entryway/mudroom.We started with a nice white door and royal blue window panes.Not terrible, but certainly not what I had in mind.Ahhhh, much better.
~Keep in mind, many of these pictures were taken a while ago, which is my excuse for pumpkins being on the front porch!~
When we open the door you’ll find many, many changes.
First I’ll show you a bit of the floor as it used to be.
This is the only photo I have of the floor ‘before’ because it was one of the very first things I tore out.
We decided to go with a dark but neutral tile that we found at Home Depot.
The wall of the mudroom were covered in a plastic-ish something that did NOT want to come off.
So I pulled off the hooks and shelves….
And my favorite part of the ‘before’?
The yellow/brown/orange window leading from the mudroom to the main part of the house.
So the steps went as followed:
– Replace carpet with tile flooring
– Remove hooks and shelves and patch walls
– Add beadboard (on top of blue-ish stuff cause it won’t come off)
– Remove brownish/yellow/orange window
– Enlisted Kaelen (awesome brother) to make a built in ‘locker’ system
Here are some of the ‘afters’!!!
With a few tips from The Nester and some of this…
Remember this post when I talked about how I thought the long wall behind my bed needed something more?
Thanks for sharing Karli! Everything is JUST AWESOME! 🙂
