Our Home Then And NOW!

Our Home Then And NOW!

Our home THEN... in late October when we first purchased our first home, we knew there was a lot of work ahead.

The home was used for a summer vacation and was outdated beyond measure. Mouse droppings, spider webs, and dust over took this cute little home. Vintage pastels covered the walls and our first home was screaming for attention.

And our home NOW!! A total transformation for our very first home as a married couple and I couldn't have asked for anything better!

Many hard and late hours were shed in the making of our home. My father was our super hero tackling ever job possible from being electrician, constructor, and dad. My parent-in-laws were huge supporters and helped our where ever we could use them from tiling to helping with all our hard woods. The amount of work took many hands and I'm forever grateful for all the experience. 

We tore down walls, insulated, laid hardwoods, painted, cleaned head to toe, tore off trim, reapplied trim, hung lights, tore down lights, the list goes on and on! I'm so thankful we are where we are now. Looking back, it was super tough. We didn't always agree but man we both are so gracious. 

I hope you guys enjoy and are inspired. xx, Alyssa
