I’m excited to kick off a series to chronicle our renovation process with our first home. We bought the house back in late May and with a busy summer we haven’t had too much time yet to tackle many projects — but we have slowly started!
I thought I’d show a few pictures of how it looked when we moved in. It’s a 1970’s split foyer and our sister is living in the bottom level — complete with a bedroom, living room, kitchen and bathroom. My giant office is also down there. Our first project (or should I say, my dad’s first project) was putting up a door to give my sister her own entrance and allow me to access my office without disturbing her.
Overall the house has great bones – we have hardwood floors & tile upstairs. Carpet in the bedrooms and downstairs which I can’t wait to replace! We’ve started to add trim to the windows – our living room looks so much better with it added! So a few cosmetic things have happened since we moved in but nothing major aside from having a fence put up! We’ve also
So what’s on the reno list? First we are tackling both of the upstairs bathrooms (hall & master) in two different collaborations I’m doing for work. I can’t wait to share the process, especially since we are doing it ourselves — my dad leading the way. We have totally gutted our hall bathroom and have begun the reno!
Here are the other projects I hope to accomplish in the next year. Our kitchen is the biggest project but we have to save up so it’s going to be several years until we are ready to start that process. We have a TON of exterior work to do but we are also waiting on that for now.
I will be sharing our living & dining room progress on Glitter Guide very soon – you’ve probably seen a peek on my Instagram!
