I was thinking a while back that I wanted to show you a little of our remodel projects from our first house. It was our little cottage of love! Our realtor tried to talk us out of buying it cuz he thought it was too far gone. Nevertheless, we moved in on our first anniversary, and then the sweat equity truly began. It was a hundred year old house with great bones, and a lot of scary layers, but peeling them off was a fun exhausting, exasperating, dirty, project.
Now, please don’t judge me on our furniture, because technically we still have most of our college free furniture and the truth is I like most of it! But also, I just wasn’t focused on decorating, we were focused on building, and getting our bachelors degrees…
Also, with the retro remodel posts, you won’t have too wait long between projects, (since we remodel at a snails pace ’round here!)
Without further adieu I have a few pics to get y’all excited and I promise the journey is just as fun as the final outcome. I will try to get at least one Retro Remodel post up a week, so stay tuned! (and while they are posting we will work on some new projects in our home to show you!)
p.s. I am a little sad looking through these pics I miss our little house!
p.s.s. (or is it p.p.s. either way) We sold the house when we graduated, and got a job across the country, so a few projects weren’t fully complete, I will point them out!
