It Hurt Your Eyes

When we bought our first home in April of 2007, I don't think we really knew what we were in for. Matt and I could see that the house had good bones, but she was outdated. I refer to the house as "she" because the previous homeowner was an older woman that had an obsession with peachy-pink paint. Pink walls, pink trim, and in some cases-pink ceilings. All in flat paint. Oh, and how could I forget the pink-beige carpet?! BLECH! I considered it my obligation to turn the uber-feminine house into something that was a little more modern yet inviting.

Does this hurt to look at?

A peek of things to come:

Wow, that looks fab! We almost bought a very outdated home a few months ago (great structure, but bad flowerly inside). Didn't work out, but I know how hard it would have been to update, so more power to you! :)

OMG!! That transformation is AH-MAZING! Can't wait to see more.


We moved into our place a year ago and are very much in the same boat as you guys. One room at a time, I keep muttering to myself to keep my sanity =)
