Making a home

Last summer we bought and renovated a house. I loved the layout of the house, but the inside was quite dated and in desperate need of love.  I know for some people it’s hard to see the end result when you’re house hunting.  I love envisioning what it would look like if you change this color or that floor.  There was so much potential in this house, it just needed help.  So here’s a little glimpse into the process of making a house into our home.

 

The dining room was really drab and dark.  The chandelier was really low. (Eventually, that particular one will be replaced, but all in good time!)

So we lightened up the walls with Sherwin Williams Aloof Gray.  We put in new floors throughout the house,  this happens to be Mullican Maple Cappuccino.

We used our existing Ikea table and a bookshelf turned side table.  Recently added the rug.  I have a really hard time committing to pictures.  I hate holes in the wall, so for now, the walls are pretty bare.

I love the colors and how well they tie into the “office”.
