I am baring my soul here...
Here's my scary mess..
Please don't run away screaming when you see my "before" pictures.. I promise I'm a changed woman!
Here is the real estate photo from when we bought our house in 2001. Of course, it was my first house as my husband and I lived in an apartment for years and Pottery Barn was HOT baby.. so I painted the walls..
I remember my neighbors telling me it was such gossip that someone would actually paint their walls red...
I thought I was sooo hip.
Let me tell you.. looking back now.. OMG! it was a CAVE! What was I thinking???!
I was doing well, I put the furniture in the same way the old residents did...
Then in came aged Tuscan around 2003 to lighten things up... and then, I stopped decorating.
3 kids in 5 years took the wind (and money) out of my sails a bit.
Then one day, after blogging a bit, I thought.
Wow, my house looks like crap ( just keeping it real girls...)!
And why do I have my furniture all jumbled up like that?
And why am I wasting so much usable space?
So I broke the room up in half, one side which is still a work in progress...
and the other which (except for my chairs) I am very happy with.
So there's my deep dark secrets..!
What is your "you should've seen it before?"
Let's see yours! Dish it up!
