I cannot believe that we've been in our house for 3 years. Man how time flies. When we first moved in we did some major renovations to the place. The house had fabulous bones, but it was dark...really dark & a bit dated. Since the major renovations we are slowly but surely tackling other projects around here...giving it the perfect farmhouse flair.
Our dining room....paint, paint & more paint. I wanted to lighten this place up & get some updated decor in here. This space looks pretty much the same after being here for 3 years. I have some ideas for a few minor things I'd like to do in here in the next couple of years, but I'm so happy with how this space turned out.
Next up, the breakfast nook--as you can see it was red...really red, as was the entire kitchen. I wasn't a fan of the red or the arched transoms throughout the house. In this area we added a shiplap chair rail, plus a shiplap accent wall. We changed all of the window trim out to give it more of a fresh farmhouse feel & got rid of the transom. We added beams to the ceiling to give a more texture & add a bit of rustic elements to the space, as well as continuing the wood floors through out this area.
And last room our kitchen, the most drastic change to the house. When we first looked at the house, I walked into the kitchen and immediately knew exactly what I wanted to do. Now this kitchen, as is, is really pretty, just not our taste. The red had to go, and so did the raised area on the island. And I really really really wanted new windows, which my husband thought I had lost it. I love the brick around the stove, but due to some issues we ended up having to take it down. I'm over the moon excited about how it turned out.
