Its almost bitter sweet writing this post, but it’s pretty fun to see all the before photos to see how far we came!
As a few of you may know, the old ( ish ) girl was bought down from the mighty Waikato in the summer of 2014, in various types of disrepair, and in two pieces. We then began to fix her from the bottom up! Above are a few snaps of what she looked like before, not so pretty.
But here is what she looks like today!
The exterior was painted in Resene Foundry, and landings in Resene Woodsman Cedar Stain
The Master bedroom was painted in Resene Black White
The bathroom was painted in Resene Black White, with Resene Smoky Green on the floors
The Laundry was painted in Resene Atomic, with Resene Smoky Green on the floors
The Hallway was painted in Resene Double Alabaster, while the Spare Room and Office was painted in Resene Black White, with Office floor in Resene White Gloss .
The lounge and Dining where painted in Resene Black White, with Office floor in Resene White Gloss .
The kitchen was painted in Resene Double Alabaster.
The fire pit fence was painted in Resene Blue Bark with Resene Woodsman Cedar Stain on the built in seating.
And as many of you know we have now sold, and moved into a new project ( at the same time as another pretty big project ) But before leaving we were lucky enough to have our main gal Heather Liddell fully document our first home and renovation for the latest issue of Homestyle magazine. I then got all nostalgic ( read pregnancy hormonal ) and wanted to share a few of our favourite snaps.
Although you may have seen snippets of the progress in Homestyle over the last year, if you are after more information on what we did, how we did it, and more detail on the Resene paint colours we chose ( beware, there is A LOT of black white ) you can check out my previous posts. And if you want to read the full story pick up a copy of Homestyle, or head over here!
Here’s to ( all ) the new adventures!
