We Bought a House! Updating Our 2003 Craftsman

2003 Craftsman – Before

We bought a house that was built in 2003.  We really liked the neighborhood, it’s close to our kids’ school (we can walk!) and it will be overall less maintenance and yardwork than our old house. 

Overall we liked the house, but wanted to give it some fresh updates to make it our own. We were also downsizing quite a bit, so we needed to figure out a way to have a bonus room or extra play room for all the kids’ toys.

Follow along to see how we updated our house to make it more functional for our family.

    Love, love love how a paint color can make all the difference! From tired to terrific! Love the subtle gray lines up in the peak. Gorgeous!
