Here are some interesting before and after shots of the house. We are in month 2, officially, of home-ownership. We've been living here now for just over a month and spent 4 weeks doing work/minor renovations. It's a work in progress, and no...it will never really end, but we've made a damn good start!
Kitchen before...old appliances, no paint, awful linoleum floor
Kitchen after...stainless steel appliances, new paint, tile floor (done by us)
And, the best part, our chalkboard wall
Living room/fireplace before...yellow/orange paint and 4" tile in entry
Living room/fireplace after...rich, dark accent wall, new tile in entry, ceiling fan
Dining room before...hideous, unfinished green and orange paint. They painted around some furniture
Dining room after...new paint and light fixture (only wires before), artwork ready to hang
