Now It's Ours!

What a whirlwind the past few days have been! We finally bought our home on Thursday, and have been hard at work ever since as we begin to make it "ours". Here's a few photos of our new place, as promised!

Closing time! 
Proud homeowners!
Living Room
Breakfast Area
Guest Bathroom

Bobby and I absolutely love it, and we couldn't be happier with our purchase. In many ways, it already feels like home!

However, we have a long list of projects that we'll be tackling in an effort to update and upgrade. As you can see, the house needs lots of love...but we're already making major progress. Stay tuned!


  1. Yay! It's so cute - I love the built-ins in the breakfast area...and the backyard! Congrats!

  2. Congratulations! You're going to have so much DIY fun. And I agree with Rachel -- I see a lot of potential in the breakfast nook!

  3. Ok, 1 I think it is way cute! 2, you could fit like 2 of my house in there and 3 (randomly--not saying I don't like the brick but I'm a fan of painting them) if you ever want to see what a painted fireplace looks like I can totally send you a pick. And we have the same fireplace insert but we painted the gold on it silver.

  4. Thank you, thank you!!

    The backyard and the built-ins (for which I have BIG plans!) were MAJOR selling points for us. We love them. :)

    And, yes, Brandy...we're definitely considering painting the fireplace. We shall see. :) Hadn't thought about painting the insert, though...good idea!
