We’ve been in San Antonio a little over 6 months now and it has definitely started to feel like home. I think that has to do a lot with the little changes we’ve made to the house.I wanted to share a few before and after photos of the updates we’ve made.
^The First room we “finished” was the dining room. We painted and changed the light fixture and it has made a world of difference. I would like to eventually add board and batten and some shelving, we’ve added our De Zavala flag in the mean time. ^In the guest bedroom we just painted and added our elfa shelving and alllllll of our books. Well almost all anyway.
^I feel like Naomi’s room will always be a work in progress. Hopefully one day she will have siblings and it will look completely different, but until then it’s so fun for her to have such a big room. We painted and hung her artwork, pom poms, letters, etc. I would like to change the ceiling fan eventually, but thats not high on our priority list at all. ^In the living room we painted, said goodbye to the ceiling fan, swapped out the HORRIBLE 3D tile and painted the fireplace. That fireplace was my LEAST favorite thing about the house when we bought it and for under $200 it looks completely different and is now one of my most favorite things in the house. Woohoo! ^We’ve done the most to the kitchen. Joe’s aunt and uncle were very generous and for our house warming gift had our cabinets painted for us. We changed the backsplash and added the nook.
Of course we still have a lot to do in the house. We need to get all of our artwork and pictures hung. Our hallway is quite dark and needs to be painted, and I would like to add tunnel lights to get in some natural light. Both bathrooms need to be retiled and spruced up and of course the last thing on our list is the master. We are going to go totally different and paint the master a dark, deep navy blue. We have six windows in that room and I think it will actually work. Like I’ve said it has been a roller coaster but we are blessed to have been able to buy a home and have the ability to make it our own.
