After sharing our house tour with you I thought I'd share some before and after pics of our Houston house. While we didn't do a lot of work to the house we really updated the look and made it our own.
Front of the House: Before
Front of the House: After
What we did:
-Removed the rose bushes *gasp in horror* I know I know... some people think I was nuts but I was just NOT a fan of the rose bushes!
-Removed the old railing and header, it feel dated and it had to go!
-Added pine boards around the existing beams, stained and sealed them.
-Added flowers and mulch. I added Ixora the first year but the harsh "winter" killed them. The next year I planted Salvia.
Dining Room: Before
Dining Room: After
Same paint, same flooring. Just more updated contemporary furnishings and decorations.
Living Room: Before
Living Room: After
Again, not a drastic change but the previous owner's furniture felt dark and heavy.
Breakfast Room: Before
Breakfast Room: After
Master Bedroom: Before
Master Bedroom: After
This room has probably the most drastic appearance change. Can you believe they are the same room?! We changed out the ceiling fan...for obvious reasons. The graduation tassel pull chains were just not cutting it!
So, if you're feeling like you're house is outdated, try switching up your furniture to get a new look.
