Our First Home

We have been home owners for just under 4 months. It’s hard to believe. We have done a lot of renovations so far and plan on doing many others.

Our home is 108 years old. While painting and renovating, we have uncovered many things, good and bad. For instance GOOD: Loved finding the original marker for the house number while painting the sunroom. BAD: realizing the ceiling tiles were all stapled…that was a huge facepalm moment.

For today’s post, I thought I would share some pictures of the way the house was and then in my next post, go room by room of what we have done and what we plan on doing.

Our Kitchen




As you can see, some things are dated and others are grand. I love our new home and can’t wait to enjoy making it our own.

If you have any ideas you want to share for some renos let me know in the comments.

Keep looking back here for more updates.


Keep Smiling
