It's a Before & After Extravaganza!

Today, we're really excited to share a special project with you. This post is filled with Before & After photos of our latest property flip. Let me take you on a tour . . .

Before we began the remodel, the house looked like this.

 With fresh paint, new windows, a new front door, some decorative shutters and some landscaping, this house now looks completely different!

The kitchen once looked like this . . .

Today, the kitchen has beautiful walnut cabinets, stainless steel appliances, a granite counter top and travertine flooring. The bay window and under cabinet lighting definitely brings the space to life. Also, I got to use white subway tiles as a back splash. (Who can resist a great subway tile?)

The living room was once begging for some love . . .

Now, with a refaced fireplace, a new glass door, new carpet and fresh paint, this room is somewhere that one would actually like to spend some time. It's also worth noting that this room once had the washer, dryer and water heater in it. The above photo was taken while I stood in front of the utilities, so (lucky for you) you can't see them. They were quite an eyesore!

The hall bathroom was, um . . . pretty gross before we worked our magic . . .

Now, with custom cabinetry, a granite counter top and travertine tile, this bathroom looks nothing like it did before. The bathroom also gained a few extra square feet, as we moved a few walls around.

Take a look at what the master bathroom used to be . . .

Don't look too long, your eyes may bleed . . .

Now, after a complete remodel, and a few extra square feet, the bathroom looks like this . . . 

Before, the family room was drab and lifeless.

Today, the family room is full of light and life!

Allow me to show you what the backyard looked like a few months ago . . .

Yes, it was pretty much a junk yard . . .

With a new lawn and patio area, this space is a clean slate. We figured we'd leave this area without too much landscaping, giving the new owners a chance to add their own imprint to the property.

So, there ya go. This property went on the market last Friday and we'll be looking at offers tomorrow. It's been a lot of work, but it's also been a lot of fun.


  1. Staged to perfection. The bathroom is my favorite part. Someone is going to be able to move right in knowing that they won't have a huge to do list.

  2. AMAZING transformation! I could see why you would be getting offers on it almost immediately!

  3. Wow, it looks a million times better! You did a great job! Love the kitchen and master bath especially! :)

  4. Just gorgeous! I love the flooring you guys used in the family room!

    Stopping by from SITS,

  5. These are amazing before and after pictures. I definitely love the after!

  6. Jen- What a transformation! I am so impressed, every room went from drab and dumpy to fabulous and fantastic. An amazing job!

    The bathrooms are my favorite - classic and serene (and no dripping plumbing!)
