A Little Bit of Love Goes a Long Way (In Home Updates)

Recently, McDreamy decided to make some updates to his house in order to sell it. Needless to say, I was shocked by the transformation that occurred with some time, effort, and love. We had tremendous support from friends and family members who helped us with everything from moving to building walls and beyond. We are very thankful for their love, help, and support. So without further ado, here are the before and after pictures… 

Here are the mantel and stair rails before…

McDreamy’s Dad and McDreamy worked incredibly hard for nearly a week to get painting, landscaping, and so much more completed. Below are more pictures of after. Enjoy!


The Triple Bypass



All in all, the house looks nearly brand new. I’m crazy impressed with it and I almost can’t wait to update another home… almost. 

If you’d like instructions on how I stained the cabinets visit this blog. Follow the directions exactly. Use brand new socks and apply extra coats of poly. Allow for the proper dry time and you’ll be golden.
