Where We Dwell

Welcome, welcome, welcome!  Here's a little glimpse at some of the rooms in our home.

Our house is a 2 story home in an older subdivision.  It was built in 1979, so it's just coming up on being 35 years young.  It has 4 bedroom and 2 and a half bathrooms and really is the perfect house for us.  It was a foreclosure that had been empty for over a year, so it was in some serious need of help when we bought it.  We've been working our way through the rooms one by one and by the time we are done there won't be an inch that hasn't been touched.  We moved into the house in the fall of 2013.

We've made some progress in the living room, but are far from being done.

The Upstairs Hallway

We still have a bit to finish off in the hallway, but we are pretty close to being done.



Read about the progress here.

The rest of the areas haven't been touched yet, but we have big plans for most of them!  I'll update the photos as we work our way through the house.


Our house was a 2 story, 1300 sq ft home in the middle of the city.  It was built in 2004, smack dab in the middle of an economic boom, which means that it was builder grade and has a few small issues because of how fast it was built.   It had 3 bedrooms with 2 full and 2 half baths.

  3. Hello from a former Sherwood Park girl! Good job with the blog, very inspiring. Love your green dresser makeover!

    1. Thank you! Where did you move to? Miss the park? I am actually sort of sad that green dresser sold so quick...I liked having it around. Maybe one day I will do one for myself :)

  5. I'm thinking of painting my bedroom a nice blue color and i love the color you have in your master bedroom!! what color is it?!

    1. Hi! It's December Eve by Behr. It's the perfect navy, in my opinion.
