Hallway Bathroom {Before and After}

 And two months later ............I bring you the hallway bathroom reveal! This is the kids bathroom and is located in the hallway right next to their bedrooms. This bathroom was full of tile, tile and more tile. We took it all out and replaced it with shiplap walls and subway tile for the shower/tub area. We replaced the vanity area with a farm table and double sinks with exposed pipes underneath. For some reason the true tone of the wood table looks orange/red in the pictures when it's more of a walnut stain. We used a white penny tile for the floors and that would be the only thing I would not use again. As much as I like the look it's very slippery.

Living Room {Before and After}

As many of you know we moved this summer and bought another fixer upper. I will be honest and tell you that this one has been so trying in so many ways. I won't get into all of the details but rest assured that the pretty after pictures you will see in the coming weeks did not go down like a happy and cute episode of hgtv Fixer Upper. It's been hard and I am so thankful to be on the other side of the story to now show you the place that we will call home. There are still many things that need to be finished but I want to go ahead and start documenting our progress and I can always show more pictures along the way. 



In the living room we added a window to create more light and balance. I think it makes all the difference in the world! We also took out the carpet and added in wood flooring that matches the original wood floors throughout the rest of the house. The side you can't see in this shot will be saved for later because we are not finished with it but there was a wet bar that we took out and are still deciding what exactly to do with the space. We had planned to create a faux fireplace with space for a tv above but the budget didn't allow for it so we are going to need to get creative. In case anyone asks the paint is Revere Pewter at 25% and the trim is SW Pure White.

Junebug is {walking}

 Two Friday's ago {September 19th) our Junebug woke up completely determined to walk on her own. She had made up her mind that even when she fell she was just going to get right up and get back to it. All day long she did this. By Saturday morning she was mostly walking with very little falling and crawling. We were all so proud of her. The big kids kept cheering her on and holding her hand when needed.

This is the face of determination!
