Make sure you stop over to my latest link party!


Basment fun

I am SO excited to show you all our fun basement.  Like I said before it is pretty much were we spend about 90% of our time.  This is when we started. None of that furniture was ours.  
The previous owners asked if they could have the carpet since we were taking it out.  I glad gave it to them.  However, the carpet was in amazing condition and super nice carpet.  Just not my color or style!
Here are a few of the demo!  Those spots are dust.  Gross!!  But that hunky guy is my super handsome husband!  I know I am SO lucky!!

This is after we pulled down the paneling down.  They did something that I haven't really seen before.  They sheet rocked and then put paneling over it.  Why I am not sure, but we were so excited that we didn't have to spend that money!!!
No home reno job is complete without surprises!  Do you know what is from?  Not mold!
That would be from termites.  Yep, you read that right.  We found termites!  I was sick!  But we had a bug come and take care of them.  But I want them to come back and make sure that they are all gone!!!

Here are the before pictures of my craft room if you didn't see my last post. 
Here are the pictures of the Craft room during.
The stove thing was a canning kitchen and it was really nice, the only problem is we wanted this to be a bed room for our little boy when we have more kids.  So we thought that since we are carpeting we might just want to take it out.  Which we are happy that we did because we found this where the sick was.  Yep, that would be mold! 
My hubbie and I got talking and there were 4 closets in the this room.  which took up a ton of room.  We decided that we would keep the 2 big closets and take out the 2 small ones.  Which I was kinda worried about.  But now that we did it.  I love it!! 
Bye bye closets! 

This is the stairs without all that crazy wallpaper, mirrors, and carpet.
Here is the basement after we had textured painted it. (Again with the sideways! Does anyone know how to fix this?)

Here is the craft room before carpet!  Without those two small closets.  It makes the room SO much bigger!
Lat but not least!  The Family room with carpet!!!  I love the carpet.  However, I will never go through the company that we did again!!!!  They broke the sheet rock in two places and told us that there is nothing that they would do about it.  Grrr!!!! 
We are still working on the baseboards, painting the doors and the door jams, decor and the placement of furniture.  I can't wait to show you everything when it is done.  Just a few more things and this is officially checked off the list! 


A little home tour!

Hello friends!  I thought that it was about time that I show you are new humble house!  I am so excited to say the least.  Now, we didn't buy it because it was exactly what we wanted.  But it will be when I am done with it. These is a horrible pictures, they were taken with my phone.

Let's start wit the front room.   It was taken when we were doing our walk through.  Yes, that is our real estate agents feet.

 This is the kitchen.  It look a lot different then it does now. I wish that I could say that it was still that clean!  HAHA!!!

  This is my little boy's rooms.  Don't you just love those built in's?  (Sorry, that the pictures are sideways) I wish that they left that chest.

This is my little girl's room.  It is tiny, but I love it.  (Sideways)
Then here is that master!   It is not really that master.  But I really loved the rest of the house and I feel that you only sleep in your room.  We don't believe in having tv's or computers in any of the rooms.  So this will do just fine.  Except the doors for the closet.  (Really, sideways)

Now the bathrooms.  The first is the kid's or guest bath. (Anyone know how to change that?)  Sweet, colors huh!?  The wallpaper is gone and we have a cream colored wall.  But everything else as of now is the same.  We are going to completely gut this and make it look amazing.  I think that we might keep the vanity, it is solid wood.

Now the "Master" Bath.  It is a pass through.  We are still trying to decide if we want to frame off the door and put a tub in.  I would love too.  But I also really like having the pass through.  Either way we are going to redo this bath too.  Sweet tile huh?!

Then there was the reason I feel in love with the house.... The HUGE basement.  I have always wanted to have a huge room so that when we have friends and family over we can all be in the same room.   Now I didn't say that it was beautiful.  I just said I loved it size!  Look at that awful carpet!!!  I mean it was made amazingly well.  Plus, it was in great condition.  But it was awful!!!  Plus, the people that we bought it from gave us a carpet allowance!  HURRAY!!!

 Not the prettiest fireplace I have ever seen.   We are still trying to figure out what we would like to do to it. 

 This is the hall going downstairs.  Yes, that is mirrors, striped wall paper and checked carpet.  It was awful!!!  Yes, it is all gone!!!  Yahoooo!!!  Yes, that is me in the picture.
Then my most favorite room in the whole house!!!!  My craft room!!!!  It use to be an old canning kitchen with the washer and dryer in it.  But looked at the carpet!!  Yickes!!  Plus, most awesome wood paneling!

I hope that you liked my little house tour.  I can't wait to show you the things that we have already do and the things that we are going to do!!! 


I am back!!!

Hello!!!!  I know it has been forever since I blogged here!   I have to say a lot has happened to our little family with in the last year.   Most of you know from my last few posts that we had a baby girl.  Which is so much fun.  But as you may know, baby are a lot of work and she is a very spirited little one!  I will have to write about some things that I have learned now having two kids.  I have a boy and a girl and people where very right, they are day and night!  But still tons of fun.  

When my daughter was exactly a week old, my hubbie started a new job!  It was crazy.  Training meant long hours and having a little boy and a baby.  It was not easy.  But we lived with my mother in law and I don't think that I could have made it without her.  She would come home from work and take my little boy outside to play and do yard work.  During this time my daughter had colic and I had tons of nursing troubles. I will do a post about that in and of itself.  

With my husband's new job came a good size raise.  At least for us it was.  Which meant we were able to start house hunting.  After about 2 months of looking at house's we found our home!!!!  It was SO exciting.  Everything went smoothly and there was no one living here at the time so things went very fast.  The Tuesday after we signed, my hubbie decided that he needed to go deer hunting and I was left with a house to unpack, a super energetic 2 year old and a nursing baby.  Needless, to say I was exhausted!!!  I had some friends come to the recuse and it was so kind! 

Now, fast forward to today.  So far we have started to remodel our basement.  By start I mean almost done except painting and do base board and trim.  I will do another blog post about the bumps we had a long the way and how amazing it turned out.  We love it and it is where we spend pretty all of our time.  

Now we are working on my son's room.  Which I am so tickled to get done!  It will be so much fun to decorate.  Plus, my son who is 3 is the size of a 6 year old.  I am not sure why he is so big.  But he is and so he is currently in a toddler bed and he is just as long as the bed.  So it is time to upgrade him into a twin bed.  I will do a post about that to!!! 

Well goodness, looks like I have a ton to update you on.  Plus, some of the most exciting news of the post, I have a craft room!!!!  Yep, you heard me!!  Guess what?!  It is the biggest "bed room" of the entire house.  I can't wait to show you.  I have been working on getting it organized and all the boxes out of it.  You are going to love it.  I just know.  

I have tons of decor ideas thank to that lovely pinterest and that amazing people who share ideas.  I can't wait.  I hope that you will join me on this journey.  Which mom stories, home and decor ideas, kid struggles, and sew fun!   As while I have been away, I have found some amazing blogs that I would love to share with all of you.  I hope when life gets a little bit less crazy to start Tuesday Tell All's again.  It was so much fun to see all of your amazing ideas!  

So tell me, what in the world have you been doing while my life has been super crazy????
