New House

I have been so busy since my last post. Got a job as a COTA and brought a home in July. I lucked out and got quite the deal on the house. It was originally built in the 1870's but has been remodeled recently. Here are a few pictures of the home we brought. These are pictures from the Realtor so it has the old owners possessions. I forgot I had these, I can't believe how much it has changed for us since then!
Dining Room, This is actually a room that you walk into from the street so we are not using it as a dining room. We have big plans for this room, including ditching these colors and wallpaper

Here you see the front door, I LOVE the french doors. 

Here is the kitchen which we also have big plans for, there is no longer a table in the middle. The room shown with the doorway is where our dining room is. 

Our fire place, I do love this too. Especially during all these Polar vortexes! LOL. Take note to the ugly striped wallpaper in the half bath to the left. 

Living room with a lovely bay window. 

Best tub ever. 

The master bedroom. Love all the space. 

So as you can see we have quite a bit of updating to do. The house was rented therefore is all the renter white color. I am so glad i never rented because the white color drives me nuts!

Keep following to see all the improvements and DIY projects we are attempting! Let me know if you have any good homeowners advice as well! 
Thanks for stopping by!
