This summer we started to take on our "before baby" list. Two of the HUGE projects that we have wanted to get done since we bought our house a year or so ago were on our summer list; new siding and roof, and tackle the 1980's kitchen.
As luck would have it, we were hit by TWO hail storms in the last 12 months which our insurance nearly covered all of the new roof, siding and gutters.
As you might remember here was the front of our house the day we bought it:
And the front of our house now!!! I LOVE how it turned out. I've always thought gray and white were super pretty!
And for the biggest change... our kitchen. My wonderful (and slightly crazy husband) tackled this entire project in about 3 days. He began on a Friday night at about 5pm with putting a liquid sander on all of the cabinets, and by Sunday afternoon it had all been primed twice and painted, new hinges, and an island constructed, I was amazed (and in love because he wouldn't let me be around the paint since I'm pregnant, so I got out of this huge project for the most part). A few days later we got 95% of our counters in, and Matt installed them(they messed up and had to reorder a corner piece). I LOVE OUR KITCHEN NOW!!!!
The before: (don't you love the plaid picnic blue wall paper?!)
The after (with baby Cheuse and all):
