Saying Goodbye to Our First Home

I wanted to write a quick post to share the final after photos from our first place. We sold our house ourselves and used these as our listing photos. You can see the before photos for each of these rooms on the Our First House page.

Outside, we replaced the gutters and painted the brick and wood siding green.

The DIY sunburst mirror in our entryway was one of my favorite projects.

In the kitchen, we painted cabinetry, replaced the appliances and floors, and added the Ikea island (it stayed with the house):

Our dining room stayed pretty neutral, but we loved our DIY picture ledges and chandelier. We kept the chandelier and replaced it with a different fixture before we moved.

Our living room felt significantly less cave-like than when we first bought the house!

In the master bedroom, new carpet and paint made a huge difference.

Here’s a peek at our DIY-everything master bath.

In retrospect, our master closet was really big! Our new master closet is TINY.

The guest room was sort of a catch-all room, but the DIY curtains and headboard pulled it together.

Whole Room

We had fun putting the guest bath together, and it was really an inexpensive makeover.

And finally, one of my favorite rooms ever, the nursery.

After six years of DIY projects at this house, it was sad to say goodbye! We’re really happy for the family that bought it though, and luckily we’re not lacking for a to do list at our new place. On to the next project!
