the new case de clute!

After 17 states, over 6,000 miles (including cruise miles), 3 countries, and a month in the navy lodge, we finally got to move into our new house!! Without further ado, here are the pictures of the new house, as well as some before and afters since we have done some painting the last few months...

in process...a few months before we moved in

the back and the yard!

we arrived! Time to scope it out

kitchen in progress


Hello???? Is anyone home?

How about a tour?! I wish I had taken these with a wide angle lense to give you a better idea of the rooms. I tried to get some of the "afters" with the pano on my iPhone, seemed to help a bit. 

As you enter the house, the first room on your right is the playroom/ (eventually an office)...

after. panoramic. still lots of little things to add to this room.
Still to do: I have a lot of ideas for this space....places for books, pictures on the walls, etc. Santa might be bringing a fun little addition too. And I know this room is going to be forever changing.

The first room on your left is the dining room....

a pic of our new wine rack!!! So excited about this! Art piece and wine holder LOVE!
 Still to do: Printing and framing family/wedding photos 

Then we walk into the large living room/kitchen, open space. 
living room before

after.  weird lighting, hard to get a feel for what the color actually is
Still to come: in the next month or two we will be having built-ins put next to the windows. Super excited about those!! There is also a large blank wall next to the sofa that will be a large picture collage. I am excited to put that together!

better shot of the sofa....the entire sofa!!

different angle.
kitchen after. 

the beautiful deck
a portion of the yard

 Off the kitchen is a door leading to the basement and eventual man cave.
it basically still looks like this, some of our unused furniture is down here right now, but nothing else yet

walk out basement. This is where Matt wants to put a pool table. (bathroom right behind where this was taken) 

the unfinished portion aka storage!

And then up stairs we go! There are 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms plus the laundry room upstairs. I will skip the bathrooms and the unused bedroom. 

the master before.
after. Bathroom and wall with some wedding photos is behind me.

Still to come: different throw and pillows, possibly curtains, and eventually the photo over the bed will be replaced with large b&w family pictures. Someday I would like to replace our dressers, but that is a long way out.

Charlotte's room before

After. Went with a neutral grey on the walls. Pink and maybe teal accents.


Still to come: shelves on the blank wall for knick knacks and photos, and a bookshelf of some kind either on the wall by the chair or near the window. And I want to frame pictures of C with her great grandmas and hang them above her dresser. 

laundry room, next to C's room at the front of the house. It basically looks the same, just more cluttered with supplies now. 

guest room before.
after. one of the only rooms that I don't plan on painting anytime soon!
And that is the end of the tour. I wish the pictures had come out a little better, but you get the idea. While we are finally getting settled in, there is always something to paint, purchase or do around here. It's fun, but very different from renting!
