Upgrades and Remodels in House

As I mentioned in an earlier post, we decided to make the investment and take our outdated house to the next level. There are many things that we have planned in updating the house, but for now we are concentrating on two areas. The kitchen and a home office.

For the kitchen we are replacing old worn out appliances with new Stainless Steal ones, taking out old counter tops and replacing with granite, and repainting.

For our new home office, we are converting one of our bedrooms to resemble an actual "real office" rather than a "quest bedroom". We are taking out old carpet and putting in new hard wood flooring, we are repainting with office "like" colors on the walls (earthy tones), and purchasing all new real office furniture for that finished look.

I can't wait! I am so excited to finally be doing the things that we said we were going to do 3 1/2 years ago, when we moved in. Finally....

I don't have any real Before pictures but I am sure that I can find some shots with both rooms in the background that I can post. I will definitely be taking After shots to show all the hard work and results.

Oh you said Lisa, IKEA Baby! We are purchasing all our new office furniture from IKEA! It is awesome!

Oh, yeah! I can't wait to see what furniture you go with. You could really go crazy at the IKEA!

The kitchen is a great place to start with the remodel, especially when you want to add value to your home. Of course you'll go through all this and then decide not to ever move out because you like it so much!
