A Light and Bright Welcome

Come on in.

You know when you have a vision, but you aren't quite sure if its all going to work out the way you hope? This was one of those projects. It was just such a horrible mess of a space when we started. Maybe even the ugliest part of the house.

Ugh. I was so tired of looking at this. Obviously, we had already removed the closet and widened the pass through to the living room. It was even worse before that work was completed. 

Now? I am officially in love.

Yay for husbands that do demo and floors and doors. Can I get a hip, hip, hooray for the floors? Such a drastic improvement throughout the house.

And the additional natural light? Oh my.
There were a few mishaps along the way. Aren't there always? But the end result?
All so very well worth it. Can't wait to decorate this space in all of the season's to come.

A spot for guests' jackets as the weather begins to turn in a few weeks. Crazy to think snow isn't really all that far off.

This is the view as you come down the stairs, which got a simple update of their own. I am happy to report the carpet in the before photo is GONE! Is there really anything worse than carpet on stairs?! We found solid wood underneath. Yay for small victories.

And so I leave you at the end of this long weekend with glimpses of a few other spaces in our home that are slowly coming together. I hope you enjoy your extra day!
