Laundry Room

I knew we were going to buy this house the second I saw the laundry room. It was HUGE and although I couldn't let on that I was too excited, it came with a RED front loading washer/dryer set! It wasn't until we saw the house a second time that we noticed the stub out to install a sink. Yep, this was definitely the house for me! The huge potential for awesomeness made the laundry room make-over number one on my priority list, so the first vacation Dan got I put him straight to work.

He did an amazing job! After countless hours on pinterest and perusing laundry rooms, I knew just what I wanted. Thanks to a handy hubby (and no less than 6 trips to Lowe's and Home Depot) here is the new and improved laundry room!

We added a counter top over the washer and dryer to give me a folding area. The sink base and counter tops came from Lowe's. The stainless sink and faucet are from Home Depot. The glass canister and rug are from Target. (I have plans for a row of pictures over the sink cabinet, but I'm just looking for the right ones.)

The Big Reveal

We closed October 17, and immediately started moving and unpacking. Nearly 3 weeks later, the house is finally ready to be seen! (Well, a few rooms anyway!)

We spent yesterday working in the yard. When we moved in there were quite a few dead bushes and some crepe myrtles that needed to come out. We planted some burford hollys by the house and left the row of boxwoods in front. We also added two italian cypress trees, two japanese blueberry shrubs and a sago palm. I plan to add some flowers around the sago palm soon!

The entry of my favorite spaces. Just wished I knew how to decorate it.

Our new living room furniture looks beautiful in here with the rug. We are planning on adding built-ins on either side of the fireplace.

The dining room is furnished, but needs help. It's much larger than our previous dining room, and even with the table fully extended it still needs more (like a larger rug, for sure).

The kitchen! We are loving the wild granite and island!


Our favorite room happens to be the playroom/TV room upstairs. Hopefully, I'll have some more pictures soon!
