BEFORE PHOTOS OF MY HOUSE

Hello friends!

This weekend marks the 13th Anniversary of me moving into The Striped House. ย Whoa, what?! ย How did that happen? ๐Ÿ™‚ ย So today’s post is a “special edition”. ย  I found these photos of my house from before I moved in. ย I actually took them before the old owner moved out. ย They are so so so bad. ย I don’t even recognize that house. ย Seeing these photos makes me realize how much work I’ve done and far I’ve come. ย It’s so easy to forget the blood, sweat, tears and long strings of curse words I’ve shed while making over each room in this house.

I have a little scrapbook of these photos and more to show friends who come over. ย I let them try to guess which room the pictures are of, and everyone gets stumped! ย I’ve linked to the after of each room so you can do a little before and after ๐Ÿ™‚

So here is the The Striped House “Before Edition”!

Here is my dining room

Here is the eating area of my kitchen so you can see the other side of the room.

I hope you enjoyed this different kind of post. ย If nothing else, I hope it inspires one person to tackle a room that they hate and want to makeover. ย It can be done! ย I promise ๐Ÿ™‚
Until next time!
