Texas House Before and Afters

I'm excited to share some photos of the main house with you today. The transformation of some of these is shocking even to me.  I hope you enjoy!

Sadly, we have no "before" of the old pantry/water heater, but it was divided into two closet spaces with wooden sliding doors. The "after" here is the little mud room my husband ingeniously crafted. He used a sliding door for the seat, and some door trim from another doorway for the trim beneath the seat. 

The best part of this renovation, to me, is that apart from major repairs (electrical, plumbing, replaced water heater, replaced appliances), the actual upgrades we installed were very inexpensive. These past three weeks' upgrades cost less than $2000. It doesn't have to cost a fortune to be beautiful! And this is just the beginning of the photos I have to share. Next up I'll share another installment of before and afters - the bedrooms and back yard. Stay tuned!


  1. It's so beautiful. You guys did an amazing job!! I wish I could've seen it in person. My sister in law and her husband were one of the that put an offer on your house. :)

    1. What a small world! I would have loved for you to see it. I loved that place.

  2. These are awesome changes! Nice work!!
