Today is an exciting day over here.
I know you are waiting for Christmas posts from me but you might have to wait a bit longer.
I recently bought a house and today I’m sharing with you the before photos!
I know! I’ve been waiting to share these with you for what seems like an eternity.
The renovation is going to be fun and the photos will be plenty!
I’ve named my house the Sweet Little Bungalow so let’s take a peek, shall we?
When I bought this house, that song was constantly playing on the radio, Sweet Little Bungalow, and this house is very fitting.
It’s smaller than the house I had previously. Almost exactly half the square footage.
I’ll be heading into new territory with showing you how to decorate and organize a small space.
I still have plenty of room so it’s going to be a lot of fun to decorate.
So as you can see, this is the living room.
Excuse the realtor 😉
I bought this house from a very lovely family. They even left behind tools and a lawn mower in the garage for me. So sweet!
There is an extraordinary strong smell of incense in the house (I’ll show you why towards the end of the post) and I’ve tried nearly everything to get rid of the smell so if you have any tips I’d greatly appreciate them!
Here is the dining room that leads into the kitchen.
The kitchen is a good size and I can’t get over how awesome the windows are. The painted cupboards have seen better days though.
It’s just the perfect spot to watch my kids play outside in the backyard.
Sliding glass doors from the family room lead off into the backyard.
Stairs from the family room lead to the basement.
The other half of the basement is unfinished which is perfect to do my DIY projects.
Back on the main floor, this powder room is off the family room.
Next to the powder room is the small laundry room and now you’ve come complete circle on the main floor of the house.
Upstairs, there are four bedrooms and two bathrooms.
The master bedroom has plenty of space for a dresser and king size bed with night stands on either side of the bed.
And has a walk-in closet.
The master ensuite is much smaller than my previous ensuite (sob) but it will be fine for just me.
The kids’ bathroom is the same size.
The fourth bedroom is going to be my office with a big bright window and vaulted ceiling.
I’d like the kids to do art in this room with me too.
Here is a bedroom for one of my kids.
And finally the source of the incense, this is the second kid’s bedroom.
There was so much incense burning in this room you can see yellow marks all over the walls.
I’m going to wash them down with TSP and see if that helps.
Sooo, now that you’ve had a chance to take a tour, you’re going to be seeing lots of posts coming up with mood boards and the renovation process.
I hope you stick around for the ride! It’s going to be a lot of fun.
