Our Rancher: Before & After - The Entrance.

I know the title reads "before and after", but the series of posts coming your way are truly more of a "then and now".  Why is that?  Well because I'm never done re-decorating and styling our home. I mean, you already heard my dreams to renovate our 1954 cabinetry.  Yes, one day I will see my kitchen dreams come to life!!  But, anyway, I digress...

Back to the fun stuff...the transformation thus far!!

Our home was a little...ummmm...frightening when we bought it.  "Hot mess" is a phrase that also came to mind.


Ahhhh, our diamond in the rough!  Our home was so far from welcoming.  We took it from dark, overgrown, stained, cramped and closed off to happy, light and bright!





Much better, don't you think?!?

Next up...the living room portion of our "great room"!

  1. It is beautiful - it's like a totally different house.

  2. I know this is super old but what paint did you use on the outside of your house? I can't tell if it is a beige or gray! And are the shutters gray or black? I would never have guessed those colors would go so well together!

    1. I honestly cannot remember the color of the paint we used on our exterior. It was Valspar...and pretty much the ONLY paint in and around our house that I don't have the names written down for (because we no longer live by a Lowe's and started using Behr). The house is a beige with charcoal gray shutters. :) Thanks!!

  4. Hi! Love your renovations! I am wondering what you did to the floor right when you enter from the front door into the house.....is that tile?
