Before & After House Pictures - Fairway Drive

Kitchen - We gutted the kitchen in the summer of 2004. I was pregnant with Davis and VERY hormonal. I changed the floor plan and cabinet configuration right in the middle of construction. I think it was worth it! Yes, those are avocado green METAL cabinets! They now reside in our laundry room and have been painted white.




Breakfast area - This little area was pretty tight for a table so we turned it into a window seat. It is definitely one of my favorite places in the house - the window looks out onto the backyard. Again, avocado green shutters.


Dining Room/Family Room - We removed the wall between the kitchen and the original dining room and made it into a little family room.




Living Room - We removed the back wall to open it up to what is now the dining room.



Den/Dining Room - This room was originally a den. Over the last 5 years it has served many purposes, but now it is our dining room.



Basement - We remodeled the basement in the summer of 2005. We live in this space. The basement has a family room, playroom, guest room/office and laundry. Do you see a color scheme developing?
Bathroom - We remodeled the bathroom last summer. It is our only full bath so it was a bit challenging not having a bath for a couple weeks.



Stairway - The whole house was covered in this turquoise carpet. We opened up the staircase and ripped up all the carpet.

This is beautiful, Alana! You've done amazing things there! It's gorgous!!! And I love a good before and after shot- especially with some avacado green in the before! priceless!

Going Crunchy said...

Holy avacado! Did you do all this yourself? It is beautiful work. It seems like you just doubled your space in every room - - or at least made it feel like that.

Did you guys move into the house with everything that shade of green? I grew up with the avacado green fridge and appliances, gold carpet and nubbly ceiling so I was having parental home flashbacks at every turn.

What beautiful improvements! Love it!

My Ice Cream Diary said...

So, when I strike it rich, can I buy your interior decorating services? These changes are breath taking. And I think I've officially lost my appetite for avacados for the next few days.

Thanks for stopping by today.

Alana said...

Wow! You guys have done an amazing job. That's a lot of hard work!

Absolutely gorgeous. One house can only handle so much avocado!!

Rebecca said...

You have done an excellent job at remodeling. I was happy to read that you transferred the metal cabinets from the kitchen to another room--very resourceful! I personally would have kept them avocado green. I am the only person I know who actually likes this color, and not in an ironic way. I am looking forward to it making a comeback. (I am serious!)
