New House Before and After

New House Before and After

Well, we finally decided to buy a house here in the Houston area.  It was exactly where we wanted and it took some expert negotiating but we got it done.  When you see the before pics, you’ll understand why we had so much negotiating power.

Alison acted as the general contractor and head designer and did a great job!  We even had people we didn’t know asking to see the progress and ask her for ideas and contact information.

From “Sunshine Yellow” to a soothing grey

The realtor told the people living here to change the paint color and they’ll get more offers.  They refused.  The entire house was yellow and purple.  It was as if we stumbled into a LSU fan’s dream home.  However, the carpet was stained in every room.  So, it was a complete do-over.  We spent about 60 days on fixing this place the way we wanted it.

Once again, Alison took over and picked out everything.  This is my favorite room of the remodel.

All those hours watching Chip & JoAnna paid off!!!!

First Impressions

Had to do something here.  This ended up being one of the harder jobs and more time consuming.  We did a lot of the work ourselves.

There’s the Purple

And everyone had to help!

And we couldn’t forget about the back yard

Come on by!  I’ll post more later, but we are ready for guests now!

I like a job where you can prep by watching Fixer Upper.  We still have some work to do, but the hardest stuff is done!
