Finally Home....

Well Life has been a little crazy as of lately!! I know it has been a month since my last post but once you see what we have been doing you'll understand.......This blog will contain a LOT of pictures so prepare yourself.........This is our home - The Smallwood's First home! I'm excited to share with you the process from beginning to end. AGAIN A LOT OF PICTURES!!!!!!!

Here are the before pictures of the home. The homeowner did a great job with it (obviously curb appeal was there) It was just not our style so we changed pretty much everything.........











 See super cute ....just not me... SO we put an offer and they accepted which was super stressful yet exciting. We closed about a month later and started the process of cleaning and painting. With the help of our wonderful families, we were able to complete most of the stuff within the first week (before we went on our honeymoon - that's another post no worries.) For the first three days, the women were cleaning and the men were painting......IT was ridiculous but we got it all finished....My parents came a few days later to help us finish the painting and the little jobs that had to get done.




Pups were tuckered out from playing all day.








 This is the now guest room


This is now the office




how we had to dust the fans...

So the house isn't completely finished. We still have to put in another pendant light over the bar, hang a few more things on the wall, finish our "wine section" of the dining room, and hang window treatments but I couldn't resist showing the ALL MOST FINISHED project.....I'll add more pics when we get those few things finished.

  1. Nicely done. Tell your husband that his work on the finish-only stripes is well worth the sweat. It's those subtle details that enhance an overall feeling of a room, even if you're not totally sure why.

    Best of luck and congrats on home-ownership!
