It’s been almost 10 years since we moved into our wonderland in 2012, which is seriously hard to believe. When I first walked into the room I didn’t care that it was painted a hunter green, which was decidedly my least favorite color. It was the windows that had me. I was coming from a dark cabin that was built on the back of a hill covered in trees. So, for 5 years I got very little natural light in my home. The idea of moving into a home that was filled with natural light thrilled me.
The woman we purchased it from was obviously trying to upgrade it in her own way, but really ended up cosmetically destroying it. But we were up for the challenge, or so we thought.
It’s not hard to see that we took on a fixer-upper! None of this scared me, it’s just cosmetic and it can all be easily fixed! Or so I thought…
We purchased the house in 2012 and between then and now we have added three more children to the mix! And if anyone has renovated while living in the home, plus adding in children, you know it’s quite the challenge. And everything takes twice as long as you think it will.
We have done quite a few updates as you will see in future posts. And there are quite a few upgrades I’m still in the middle of, in the planning stages of, and dreaming of on my Pinterest boards.
This house deserves to find its groove again. Here’s a break down of things that need to be replaced or fixed:
- Paint in every room
- Plumbing and fixtures.
- Electrical outlets and fixtures.
- The entire kitchen.
- Both bathrooms.
Everything else is just for fun and based off of our personal tastes and wanting to make this home our own Wonderland.
I would love to welcome you to come along with us on this adventure! It’s always more fun when you have friends to get the work done right along side you.
Thanks for stopping by!
