House Tour - Before

This is our favorite room in the house. Love all the counter space and my beloved dishwasher! When we looked at our first house, I didn't even look for a dishwasher. I just assumed it would have one. In Brady, you've got to look.  Poor Tim hardly had any meals cooked for him in the last house. There will be some painting in the kitchen's future and little things.

This starts the part of the "find the dogs" tour. They kept trying to make their  way into most of the photos. 

Laundry Room
You may notice it's missing the most important appliance... more on that in a moment. This leads out to either the backyard or to the garage. 

Living Room
This will be the first room we paint. Can't say that I'm a yellow/gold girl. Trying to hold off till after the holidays... but I'm sort of an impulsive painter. When I'm ready for the new color to happen, I'm already on my way to Ace.

Perhaps you noticed the fact that there is two tv's in here currently? The second one appeared after Tim was in San Angelo to buy a new washer and dryer. He gave away our current ones, headed to San Angelo, and returned with a huge tv and no washer & dryer. So now we need a washer, dryer, and a much larger piece of furniture for this ridiculous tv.


Dining Room
Not in love with the current mantlescape going on... In need of a large mirror or something. But we do love the fireplace!

Hall Bathroom
Love this retro bathroom. In has a turquoise tub & sink. While white would be the first choice, I think it's really fun. I really love the colorful mosaic floor. And it all just so happens to be in my favorite shade. Love the wall color the previous owners chose too.

I've got big plans for this room... just gotta get Tim behind them :)

Our master bath is nothing special. There is a teeny shower behind the door. Not in love with a tan-peach tile, but at least it's pretty neutral.

Extra bedroom/future craft room
This is currently the "I don't know where to put it, stick it in the blue room".

Guest Room
Love the wall color, I think it's the same as the bathroom. Would love to add more pillows and what not the to bed.


  1. Beautiful!!! absolutely gorgeous new house. But of course cannot wait to see your plans for the Craft room (dream!), and the master bedroom.

  2. Very nice Alexi Cait, love the new TV. The story is reminiscent of Mr. Carter going to Sam's for groceries and coming home with a new car. Remember?

  3. Wow!! So pretty! I am pretty sure my apartment would fit in your kitchen. So have you always had a piano? Look forward to seeing all the improvements you have for it!
