Emily over at Jones Design Company recently did a post about her house – what it looked like when they bought it eight years ago versus what it looks like now.
I totally thought it would be fun to do the same thing with our house, since we just passed the two year anniversary of our family living here.
Some of these pics you can see in our archives and our house tour page, but it's just fun for me to reminisce about how far we've come in two years.
Just go with it, m'kay?
CHANGES MADE: laid new ceramic tile (although we'll likely redo the grout again), painted everything (doors, walls), new baseboards and trim, new door hardware, new closet doors, added vertical wood paneling and hooks

FAMILY ROOM NOW
CHANGES MADE: painted walls and trim, new baseboards, new curtains (although I've just changed those again but I don't have a photo)
OUR BEDROOM THEN
OUR BEDROOM NOW
We've made changes in some of the other rooms too, but this sort of sums up a lot of hard work over two years. It feels really good to step back and view our accomplishments all at once!
What do you think? Have we made good progress?
