Man oh man where has the summer gone? I’m in Sipapu, NM this week running with our last camp of the summer and afterward I’m looking forward to some much needed rest and relaxation!
Meanwhile, it’s time again for the annual house tour and even I am in shock of how much has changed around these parts in just over a year! Because I’m always up for a trip down memory lane, I thought we’d do a little ‘before & after’ with the tour from 2012.
Wowza. See what I mean? Let’s see, in the past year we’ve created a seating area on the porch, hung some new bird feeders, created not 1 but 2 pieces of garden art and given that sad looking pineapple a pop of color! The patio has gotten new planters, a water hose bin and new house numbers (1 of which has gone missing at the moment. . . .). Personally, my response to these changes was quite delightful as it was quite similar to what I had pictured.
And the front door?
It got replaced in December and a new wreath this Spring!
The entryway got a new coat of paint along with the rest of the living room.
And we made this wall into a chalk wall!This little eat-in kitchen nook has gone through some drastic changes!
We updated the bar, completed the kitchen gallery art and built some eat-in seating after we painted the entire kitchen.
Across from the kitchen table, we added a screen door to our pantry and did a little bit of yarn art as well as adding this sweet command center.
Remember that dreamy recipe nook?
It underwent a pretty drastic renovation and is now put to great use!
Here’s another reminder of the beautiful wall paper that used to grace our walls.
I’m constantly amazed at what a few coats of paint can do!
Last but not least, the dining room. I’ve even forgotten how tan everything was!
We colorblocked our walls and picked up this awesome vintage buffet from my grandparents house.
I also tried my hand at hanging un-framed art and it took not 1, not 2 but 3 attempts!
Most recently, I created the Happy Day art installation and I love how it brightens up the room!
More to come soon because don’t worry, right in the middle of photographing the living room we decided to buy a new couch!
