Welcome Home, Living & Dining Room 'BEFORE' shots!!!

We've moved in! {Well as of the first of the month}.

Within about 30 seconds of homeownership..... my dear hubby had already started ripping the carpet up in the dining/living room!

We knew there was the original hardwood underneath, just didn't know how original the condition was!!

Wellllll, we do have to refinish them, and it needs to be soon, might I add! {like before christmas eve}
Paint splatters, missing wood, and just being 90+ years old in general, calls for a spiffing up!

The other night we went to home depot and this is the stain we picked out:

Here it is in real life (on a door) for some reason, it looks much different in person...so hopefully it turns out okay!!:

We've made a list of updates room by room, and the first room to be graced by our 'makeover' touches is the dining/living room. 

Here is my list so far:
1)Floors refinished
2)Adding trim around the two doorways-dining room into kitchen & living room into hallway
3)Painting (already started priming wood paneled wall, will show pictures in a later post)
4)Window treatments
5)Rugs for entryway/under dining room table/living area
6)Adding more outlets...{{sure sign of an old house :) }}

We've  My hubby has done so much already!

Love being a homeowner. I do appreciate the opportunities and relationships we made while living in our previous homes. Makenzie told me today that she loved her new house, but missed her old friends. Things that make mommy's hearts sad!!
