Final Renovation Photos

We are currently surrounded by boxes as we pack up to move from our old home to the next - adventure awaits in the form of a very large bungalow that we are looking forward to renovating and making our own.

This current house we are about to leave has been a lovely home - we've had heaps of great memories made here, and done a lot to the property since we first moved in over 8 years ago.

I've shared some of our renovations here in the past, but thought I'd share a few more before and after shots of the rooms and areas I've missed.

It's been a crazy ride renovating our second home together - and here we are moving on to a third one to renovate!  Hopefully this will be our last in a while...

The Outside
When we bought this home it was a lovely orange colour (ewww) and had a jungle of a back yard. There was heaps of clearing to be done, fences to be built and painting needed.  Love the final result!

The Bathroom
This home has the smallest bathroom ever!  We had to work with the space we had, installing a 'shub' sized bath and decided to keep the original tongue & groove wall boards look.

The Lounge:
The lounge already had no wallpaper when we moved in, so after polishing the wooden floors, restoring the doors and wall papering/painting, it was lovely.  Can you believe that little guy in the photo below is now 13 years old!!??!!

Dining Room:
The dining room wasn't too bad when we moved in, but after a lick of paint and installing some French doors and a deck, this small space became beautiful.

Bedroom 1:
This room was where our 2 boys initially slept until we changed it into the girls room.  Those louvred widows had to go!

Master Bedroom:
Our bedroom needed a window seat built in, painting and new wardrobe doors - although there aren't many before pics, I love how it is now.

So there you have it - the final renovation photos of our home, a few weeks before we move out!

I'm sure there will be many renovation before and afters of the new house, especially with 5 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 3 lounges, kitchen, dining and a massive hallway (did I mention there is an attic as well?).  Phew - yep, just call us crazy.
