House Tour: The Beginning Stages, Pt. 2

Hey yall! Let's move on to the rest of the house shall we? (If you missed pt.1, click here!) We left off with a view from the living room into the dining room...now let's take a closer look at the dining room...

Dining Room
 I love the floors!! We've got a table lined up but we want to look around a bit more to make sure it's the one.

The green tiles and the arched area above window are my favorite part! I want new hardware for the cabinets and pretty curtains in here. They painted the walls cream and the cabinets white which looks really odd and I'm not sure why they did it. We're going to paint the walls white for bright bright kitchen. I want to add color with all the accessories...

Note the dishwasher, YAY! These floors suck SO bad, we are going to pull the sticky tiles up and maybe do FLOR tiles in the kitchen OR just seal the wood that's underneath and have a big area rug over it. Either way, no more sticky tiles that suck!!

Kitchen light
love love love our light in the kitchen! I don't know if you can tell or not but it's very very big. I love how vintagey looking it is :D

Back steps
The kitchen door leads you to the backyard. Down the steps we go :D

Back yard
To your right, lots of room for more shrubs and flowers. I can't wait to garden!

The Shop
On the other side of the fence to the left, the boy's man cave, LOL. It's it cute? I love the weather vane on the top of it :D See it?

The gazebo
The gazebo! It needs a little work, like a door, new screens, paint, and some new wood on the roof, but I love it! I want to put a small table and some chairs out here and cute lights all around. This is going to be the hang out spot come spring!

There's a grill in the gazebo
The built in grill (inside the gazebo). Needs a good cleaning, but I was so hyped to find out the house came with this!!

Back half of the backyard
The back half of the yard. I LOVE how big our backyard is!! But I probably won't like raking it haha. There's so many little trees and shrubs along both sides of the fence. It's going to look so different in a few months :)

Well that's it...I hope you enjoy the little tour! Stay tuned for many many many more house updates as we make this little house our home :D

your backyard is huge! I definately want a big backyard when we buy a house. We are only just moving out of home but so buying won't be happening atleast until next year.

I can see that cute little gazebo all jazzed up and surrounded by flowers and you and the boy in there grilling up some amazing food. I just love your little house- you must be in heaven every day you wake up :)
