Rental Before and After

While I am waiting for our next move, I thought it would be fun to revisit a few of our other Rental Before and After renovation projects. Seems like we have had quite a few!

Okay, we have had a LOT!

The Cape Cod Project was the most recent.

One of the first things I tackled was the hideous basement bar. Yikes!

It was so much fun to make a Tiki Bar out of it!

The Closet Home Office was next. It was an under used space and this little office worked great for our son’s homework station.

The dining room had good bones, but was very, very dark.

A fresh coat of paint did wonders! Read about it here.

The upstairs hallway in this house was so dark and narrow it made me claustrophobic. The halls felt so much bigger with fresh paint! Here’s the info on this project.

The downstairs hallway got the same treatment!  I was so glad to leave that home behind, I just never felt comfortable there!

 

Our previous rental home was great. We loved this house, inside and out. The yard was huge and we spent a lot of time outdoors both in summer and winter. This was in my early blogging days, looking back I have grown so much as a blogger since then!

The house was wonderful, however the pictures, not so much. Be forgiving, okay? I realize now that I don’t post many things from my early blogging days, I just hate most of the photography. Perhaps I am too picky.

Here’s the “before” home tour.

The other fun project was painting removable stripes on our master bedroom wall. Click here to see how I did it!

I loved this bedroom, I can’t wait to paint more stripes in our new location, but this time they can be permanent! You have no idea how exciting that is for me!

Because there wasn’t a lot of things for me to do inside that home, I spent a lot of time outdoors. We had the best garden I’ve ever had at that location, see the full garden tour here.

Hard to believe it’s only been a few years, yet we have accomplished so much! Blogging has become second nature to me, I love it more than ever. I look forward to having lots more things so share at our new location, coming soon!

I am counting down the days, and am super impatient!
