I’ve been wanting to put this Home Reno post together, for some time, now. Here are the (long-awaited) “BEFORE” and “AFTER” shots of The House on High Street. I’m going to do this in two parts. This post will focus on the first floor.
These before and after photos encourage me. They remind me of how God can take ANY situation…no matter how old, how helpless, or how “AWFUL” it may seem, and restore it into something beautiful. I hope these photos encourage you, the same. xo
BEFORE: Ok. Let’s start with my First Impression. This was the first room Scott and I entered, with our realtor, (in the back of the house). Needless to say, it wasn’t looking very promising.
AFTER: Now, this room is a sun room. Very sunny and cheery. We have our kitchen table in here, but we made it semi-formal. This room is great for parties, hosting an intimate dinner, and/or using it as a playroom.
BEFORE: The Kitchen
AFTER: Rachel Maria’s Kitchen!
BEFORE: Closet & Hidden Staircase
AFTER: Kitchen with Cabinets and Pantry in lieu of Staircase wall. Pocket Door for that 18th Century-feel.
BEFORE: Family Room.
AFTER: Family Room
BEFORE: Not-So-Great Room
AFTER: The GREAT Room
BEFORE: Wall separating two rooms.
AFTER: All Open!
BEFORE: Center Hallway
AFTER: Center Hallway. We opened up both entrances to The Great Room & The Formal Room with French Doors; We added beautiful sconces, and spent DAYS fixing up this staircase.
BEFORE: The Staircase
AFTER: The Staircase
BEFORE: The Formal Room
AFTER: The Formal Room
Well, there you have it. We’ll do the second floor, later. (That’ll be Part Two.) It takes a long time to get these pictures uploaded. I leave you with several other randoms, of the first floor, at The House on High Street. By the way, I’ve been told that it is even prettier in person. So, if you’re not satisfied and want to visit, just let me know. xo
