Oh Hey There!

7:00 AM

As you may have noticed, I took the summer off. Selling our home in Denver was kinda sad for me and I just didn't want to talk about it. Tears were shed when Matt and I stood in our home for the last time. However, we are no longer homeless because we just closed on a new casa this weekend! So yay for that. But before I introduce you to our new home, I want to share some parting shots of our first home.
 

 

 

It's actually a little weird looking at them since it's been almost 5 months since this was our home.

 

 

 
Here is the kitchen where I last left you. I really miss all the space our kitchen had. What I don't miss is that is was completely separate from the rest of the house. Those countertops though....

 

 

 

This bedroom was never actually used. The "bed" is literally an inflatable mattress ontop of some boxes and leftover plywood. Classy!

 

 

 

This bathroom got a brand new tile floor along with some new baseboards.

 

 

Our sad bedroom was like this until the end. Real bedroom furniture is in our future of reals this time. We already have a bed and bed side tables, and a new dresser is just around the corner. Getting rid of our bedroom furniture helped to light a fire under our asses to remedy this embarrassment.

 

 

 

New tile floor, paint, and baseboards for the tiniest bathroom in the house as well. When we got our new kitchen countertops people asked if we wished we had done this sooner. I did, however the bathroom floors were so gross and embarrassing that they were the winner of the "I wish I had done this sooner" contest.

 

 

 

The guest room really didn't change at all, it was probably the first room to look "finished".

 

 

Again, another area that was never fully realized. We had dreamt of building a wall of pipe shelves on the right hand wall. Also, never used this fireplace.

 

 

 

Did you know we had a basement? Well we did and it was huge but we never used it. Matt's brother was a life saver and basically took care of the basement for us. Paint, clean, stage.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And that just leaves the backyard. It was way overgrown from this point. The tree was probably double this size and needed some trimming. The spring growth spurt was just crazy.

 

Ok, so now that we've said good bye to the old, here's a quick sleek peak of the new!

 

 

I'll give you the full tour next time!
