Our Little Yellow House ~ Downstairs Before and After

It's finally here! I know you haven't exactly been waiting on pins and needles, but hopefully you haven't completely lost interest in seeing our little yellow house!

Last night we finally finished the last little details that I wanted to have done before showing you all. There are still several things to do (replace the thermostat, touch up the trim, swap out the ugly light fixtures, etc), but we've made HUGE amounts of progress over the last 3.5 months! Goodness, where has the time gone?

So, prepare yourself, because the before is a sight to behold....

No, your eyes are not deceiving you. Those walls are peach!

Wood finishes everywhere and broken appliances. It was a depressing sight indeed.

Needless to say, we ripped stuff apart right away, and soon we had this.

I really meant to have this all finished before we had decorated for Christmas, but oh well.

It's not quite perfect yet, and who knows if it ever will be. After uploading these pictures I noticed an outlet cover we forgot to put back and we still need to replace our fridge. Our home is always going to be a work in progress, but I'm very happy that at least the first floor is much cheerier than when we first moved in.

Seriously, can you believe the difference?!?!?!
