More House Pictures

For those of you who read my last post, I told you that I broke my camera in the process of taking pictures. To be honest, I was actually getting in the shower to take a picture of the master bathroom when I dropped it. Oops! BUT, I have to brag on myself and tell you that I performed "camera surgery" and got it working again! It isn't in 100% tip-top shape, but it takes pictures, so it'll do for now! Anyway, here are more pictures of the changes we've made to the house.

Here's the dining room before...


And here it is now. We've probably done the most in here. Thanks to Ryan and the guys for putting in our new floors, baseboards and light fixture!





This was the study...the dark maroon was so morbid and creepy! It made me claustrophobic. My mom was waiting here as soon as we closed on the house and helped me paint this room first!



Now it's Ryan's "man room" complete with Marine Corps, Dallas Cowboy, and cigar paraphernalia. The pictures didn't really get the color right...it's kindof a dark olive green, which turned out pretty cool.






The kitchen before...


And now...





The living room before...



We actually didn't change anything in the living room except for putting our own stuff in.







The master bathroom...



And the guest bathroom...

So that's what we've been up to the past month. Our door is always open for anyone who wants to come visit!

You have GOT to be kidding me. You are out of control with all your painting and decorating. You and BGP are two peas in a pod. It looks amazing. Your before and after pictures actually inspire me to decorate my house! Of course, I've been there almost 2 years now... Oh well. There's still nothing to say that I'll actually take any action on this new found inspiration. :)

Yeah--it's too bad you can't be our teacher! We're desperate now... Matt has 46 students now, and lots of other interviews set up for this week. So if you know of/hear of anyone who might work, please send them our way! (mattburk.com) Thanks. :)

WOW...everything looks so fabulous! I am so impressed. Can you come decorate my house now? FYI, after I read your last post I told Tim how many rooms y'all painted & how I was so jealous because we are slackers. I came home & he had started painting the living room. Thanks for the motivation! Your house looks so amazing...way to go!
