Sunflower House – Before and After

As many of you know, we worked on our house for about 6 weeks solid to get it updated and ready for our family of 5. As with any house, there’s always more we’d like to do, but we got a lot done in a compressed amount of time, because….well….we’re crazy. We also had a lot of great help. Here’s the day we closed.

Master Bedroom:

Here’s the before and after. As you can see, the carpet was particularly in need of replacement.

And my closet and shoe rack:

Master Bathroom:

We didn’t change much here other than the paint and the staining of the cabinet. We hope to maybe get to a remodel on this someday.

Nathan’s Room:

I know, I know. We should have just left it like it was. We don’t have a complete photo of the new version, but it’s about the same as before other than a new valance and the gray wall color.

Stair Well:

This photo emphasizes all the trip painting I did. :)

Front Room:

This is the room just to the left when you walk in the door. We’re not exactly sure what to do with it. It’s a good conversation room, and we also may put a small pool table in it. We’ll see. Our family computer is there to the right also.

Dining Room:

I especially love the light fixture we replaced in here which we of course got from Craigslist.

Kitchen:

We did a lot in here. We replaced all of the appliances, we gel stained the cabinets and replaced the hardware, and we of course painted. There’s also a big double bi-fold door to the left of the second before photo that had the washer/dryer before. We had it moved down into the basement (I would have preferred upstairs, but there was no space. We made a huge pantry out of the space instead, which I love.

Hardwood Floors:

We worked really hard on these, too. They were in bad need of refinishing, and we were really happy with how they came out. We had to do each coat of stain and poly as we went to bed each night so that we wouldn’t walk on it. It’s in a main thoroughfare of the house.

We’re so grateful to be here and to be living in our lovely little piece of Colorado.
