Our Home: Formal Dining Room

Alright people -- the time has FINALLY come! I am going to start sharing the house pictures with you =) I meant to start this yesterday but I became so tied up at work that I just didn't have time. I am hoping that going forward I can get my posts together in advance...the night before at the very least lol! I had intended to share progress pictures but I think I will just share before and after...that way it will be a little more dramatic =) I am going to start with the
Formal Dining Room

This is the day we purchased the home:

This is how the room looks now:
 

We removed the carpet and installed wood laminate, painted, replaced the blinds and replaced the light fixture. We still have some decorating to do on the walls and drapes for in this room but I am really happy with the way it turned out. To be honest, because I was so involved with the process, I didn't quite realize how drastic the before and after were until I created this post! Keep in mind that the overhaul took less than two weeks. We bought the house on October 31st and moved in completely by November 12th. We started removing all the carpet and painting on November 1st and all the floors were installed by the end of the night on the 9th; leaving only the tile to be grouted on the 10th and we relaxed on the 11th and made final preparations to move out the next day. We worked our butts off to get everything unpacked by Thanksgiving Day so we could host our families =)


I am looking forward to sharing more photos of the house =) I hope you are having a great week!
