So we bought a house….. Yay!
It’s our first house… yay!
I can paint the walls what ever color I want…..yay!!
It’s a total and complete fixer upper……sigh….
I had one condition when looking to purchase a house. “I don’t want a fixer upper.”
Then reality hit. Our budget was tight and the down payment for a fixer upper was still enormous. I had to change my way of thinking. We looked and looked and looked. I thought we might never find one in our price range with the features that we wanted.
I was starting to get nervous as I was super duper pregnant.
Luckily we came across this one. With some fierce negotiations we became the owners of it in May 2013. We call it The Downtown House.
I originally wanted to call it The Downtown Green House because it is green. But, then I realized that it would most definitely get a makeover on the outside. The GREEN got the boot.
Did I mention that it’s lime green…!! Seriously…. You can see a pic of it here.
There have been, and will be a lot of changes to The Downtown House. Today I would like to share with you our kitchen makeover.
This was one of the first things that we did. We actually were able to get most of it done before we moved in. Which was a huge relief.
Here are a few before pictures to give you an idea with what we were working with.
What a difference, huh!! What do you think of this transformation!?
