The Beginning of the End: Living Spaces Before and Afters

We really loved our house in Florida and we're pretty sad that we had to leave it behind. I really felt like we grew in so many ways while we were in this house and really found our style. We thought we would be in this house forever so it really evolved into a space we were really comfortable. 

But, life goes on and it was time to leave and now it's time to take a step back and see how far this house came in the 4 years that we owned it. 

There is basically no way we can do all the before and after pictures of our Florida house in one post, so I'm going to break it into 5 chunks, starting with the living spaces. I can't really pick a favorite space in this house so these are in no particular order. I'm including what we did in each room (including things that we never shared here) as well as what we already miss.

Living Room

What we did:
What we miss:
  • Mantel/Fireplace
  • Character and the color!

Dining Room

What we did:
What we miss:

  • Chandelier (although we do have a new one in the design plans)
  • Cabinet for glass storage
  • Wood floors

Sun Room

What we did:
What we miss:

  • Shelving
  • All the natural light from those windows
  • French doors

What we did:
What we miss:

  • Play table and activity center
  • I miss the birds
It's a little crazy writing down what we did in each space. These are rooms that didn't get a ton of attention compared to the rest of the first floor and they still have quite the lists attached to them. It's also interesting (and a little scary) to see how my photography skills have changed over the years. Check out the links to see some real winners.

Up next will be the downstairs bedroom areas!
