Home Sweet Home - Spoiler Pictures

ok.. this post is a bit out of order, but to the friends and families who don't have the opportuntiy to swing by the new place in person, we wanted to post some "after" pictures of the three projects we took on during the week between closing and the move.

Master Bedroom.
  • Stripped wallpaper
  • Patched, primed and painted walls and ceiling
  • Repaired window sill and base trim
  • Removed purple carpet
  • Had floors sanded and sealed
  • Purchased our first bed room set ( which we LOVE ), yes we are grown up now

Empty room and new floors:


Yes, that's the same room. I apologize for the blurry quick pictures... still shaking with excitement. I will take some better pictures and post them soon.

Guest Bedroom
  • Stripped wallpaper - the dreaded balls
  • Patched, primed and painted walls
Empty room:


Yes, that's the same room too! The color of the room is "Cake Stand Blue" and seems to shift hues during the day; the afternoon light during this time of the year makes the room look very blue, but all shades are very peaceful yet modern. We wanted to make a space where our guests could get away and feel like they were on a mini-retreat. We are planning on painting the trim a light, white color ( not true white )

China Cabinet:
  • Patched, primed and painted walls
Yes.. that is green... an odd green at that.. not quite the best hue to go with the ultra red dining room walls


The color we chose is Skeleten Key, which is a VERY light silver blue, matching the trim of the wedding china. Thanks to Momma Bear for organizing the china cabinet Perfectly!

So.. that's the mini spoiler.
Much thanks again to ALL of our families and freinds for all their help and support!
More to come!


  1. Love. It.

    Seriously, it looks fabulous. It's amazing that (alhtough a lot of work), the biggest transformations result from simple projects--stripping paper, painting, and pulling up carpet. That woodwork is GORGEOUS!!! Makes me want to move my floor-refinishing project to the top of the list!

  2. P.S. Please, oh, please reconsider painting the guest room trim. It appears to be in such good shape, and as someone who is stripping all of her woodwork, I had to throw that out there. Original woodwork never goes out of style--but is almost impossible to get back in the very same condition once painted. Just a thought!

  3. Bungalowbliss.... we've been thinking about the paint trim. The inspiration is this image:

    We will see where we end up, but thanks for the advise!

  4. Yay! I love it and can't wait to see it in person this weekend!
