"That Empty Room"

It's been a little over a year now since we moved in and I finally turned that empty living room into a cute sitting area! Purchased the chevron chairs from Target. Bought some white canvas's and covered them in fabric that I picked out at Joann Fabrics and also put velco on the white wood intials to get them to stay on the fabric. Across the way hung some mirrored wall decor to match. It's still not 100% complete but it's def an improvement!

Spare Bedroom

Hi everyone! I updated the spare bedroom. Every wall was originally painted purple. I decided to leave the accent wall purple and change the others to light gray to brighten up the room. I added curtain rods and some sheers as well. Also bought a dresser and spray painted an old mirror with Krylon black glitter blast!

Holiday Decorations

We completed our 10 month inspection. Mainly a bunch of nail pops and floor creeks that were fixed, nothing major which is great. Just need to finish re painting the walls they touched up and the house should be complete for awhile. I hope you have a wonderful holiday season and Happy New Year!!!

Low Maintenance Landscape

We decided to fix and add to the landscaping that was thrown together quite fast. We purchased two yards of dirt and 2 yards of mulch. You can see we moved the tree on the right side of the garage to match the one on the left. In the picture in previous post you can see it was out really far to the right. Well that's because they were lazy and did not want to dig up the gravel I came across while moving the tree. It looks much better now.
Added mulch and two trees on the side of the house all the way to the back. We will put flowers in between but haven't found anything we like so far. We have also added Solar lights we found at Home Depot. You can see we also added rock under the fireplace so the grass will not grow there.
Waterproofed the entire foundation. We used Loxon XP by Sherwin Williams and also had it tinted to "Stone Lion" It looks so much nicer painted.
Added rocks to try to prevent flooding by each of the gutter down spouts.

Garage/Landscape Pictures

Hi everyone, I thought I would share with you the outside of the house. It's still far from complete but it's looking better! We decided to finish the garage walls. The drywallers did such a crappy job we had to texture the walls and ceiling. Sherwin Williams "Stone Lion" is on the walls, and extra white on the ceiling. I stained the stairs going into the house as well with Sherwin Williams Deskscapes - Cedar Bark. As you can see from the pictures below we have gotten the lawn seeded and some landscaping put in by Davey Tree. It has been a MESS! Hay everywhere, mud everywhere. It has only rained three times in the past two weeks so I can't wait to see the water bill :-) We have met some of the neighbors , everyone seems really nice and helpful. I hope you all are doing well and that your house is coming along just as you dreamed it would be.
