Home Reno : The Beginning

We are in renovation mode! With the estate sale behind us, we are now able to move forward. It's been a long time since I have been so excited for a renovation filled with hard work. Waking up each morning at the new house has been so peaceful and happy. I can't even begin to describe the difference. We're living out of boxes (if you know me in real life, excuse the repeated outfits) but we are content. I have

We cleared all of the tables out of the dining room. We had a lot of the sale items set up in this room so it was exciting to see a big, open space finally. This room was previously used as a living room. It's right next to the kitchen so I will make it our dining room.

This little guy is so much like his daddy. Ryan and Caleb are naturally good with animals. I think animals can just sense something in them. He comes running up with a frog and I thought it was dead. Turns out the frog was just content with Caleb. Who would have ever thought?!?

One of my favorite pieces that I want to use at the new house is this canvas. I have walked by this same canvas in our church for months. I kept mentioning how much I loved it and wanted one just like it to Ryan. One day one of my friend's pictures popped up on Facebook and in her home was this exact picture. She steered me in the right direction and I finally found it! Best news? It was on sale too!

We also cleared the living room. This will be the first area that is prepped for hardwood flooring. Ryan began removing the carpet. 

Pulling it up wasn't too bad at all. I actually wouldn't know because I watched. He definitely made it look simple though.

We ordered Caleb and Bryce's bedding this week as well. It's neutral enough to go with anything, but it has subtle colors of red, blue and green running through it. I love that it is machine washable! I have a feeling that is going to be super important....

  1. I love this post. I so love seeing people's reno projects. Now that I'm done (well, downstairs at least LOL)'s fun to see what other people do and choose. Good luck finding everything you want, like that art!
