I bought a short sale home three and a half years ago in beautiful St. George, Utah and changed sooo much about it. I didn’t love the house when we bought it, but I loved the neighborhood, school, and the pool. With a pool in the backyard who cares what the house looks like, right? After many projects I loved every corner of those four walls and I feel broken-hearted to leave it. It was far from perfect, but it was home. These pictures are from the home listing and are a little sterile, but are the best pics I have.
My favorite room in my house, and the room I miss the most, is my master bedroom and crab shack. I literally changed every inch of that room from ceiling to floor, except the ceiling fan I would never give up those blessed contraptions.
- Stencil Wall
- Install a light dimmer
- Bamboo frame
- CRAB SHACK!
- Barn doors
- Hanging barn doors
- Flooring (blog to come!)
My favorite project was definitely the tree house in the boys’ room. My kids used it daily and still talk about it. I’m trying to find an equivalent to the tree house here, but I haven’t settled on anything yet.
Curb appeal went way up in this house, which was awesome to do because I love working outside. And the pool! Oh, I loooooved that pool! Here are a few of the outdoor projects:
- Paint garage doors
- Build exterior shutters
- Finishing the side yard
- Paint front door
- Build a fire pit
- Paint exterior lights
Many of the projects in the family room I haven’t posted yet, like the media table I made with Ana White plans, the update on the window covers, or the best family portrait ever… that is to come. But, here are some:
I always wanted to paint the kitchen cabinets, but couldn’t get a thumbs up from the hubby. Maybe because there were a jillion cabinets, which was awesome and we both love wood. Still, I had have fun in the kitchen:
- Parson slip covers (not pictured below)
- Yellow table
- Picture gallery
- Spray paint hardware
- Garage and Recycling Pull-outs
The third bedroom changed over the years and became such a happy place:
Soon I’ll post the progress on the new house. Hopefully it will become a home to us one day soon!
Have a great weekend and happy creating!
