Alabama House Overview

Praise the Lord our house in Alabama sold after six weeks on the market! It's hard to think of another person living there and that we won't be able to really enjoy all the work we put into it. However it's a huge blessing to be down to one house and we never even had a month of double mortgage payments!

Before I go through the details of the rest of the rooms in our Alabama house I thought I would do a quick, big-picture, before and after post. Later I'll break the rooms down and share a few more photos of each.

  2. Your house is just beautiful! Do you by any chance know the paint color in your bedroom?

  3. I am looking for the paint color info. We used all custom colors in the house so I'll have to find the paint can to get the formula. I know I have the color we used in our bedroom I just have to do a little hunting in the garage. I promise to post it soon!

  4. Gorgeous. Love the crown moldings and the paint colors. Your house looks so different! Nice had a great vision. I am looking forward to following you and your blog!!

    I'd love to know it.
    Thanks for sharing your beautiful space.

  13. Hi Genie! Thanks for the comment. We have a post about our paint colors here: It has the formula for the bedroom color.

  14. Hi, I've been visiting around your blog! And oh my. This house was just gorgeous! You are the MASTER to do a renovation such as this!! AND, no wonder it sold so fast. You truly did an outstanding job. You should be so proud and happy that you did such a great job and I'm sure that the new owners are so happy there.
    p.s. I enjoyed your posts about the kittens too. Too bad the first batch didn't make it though. :(

  15. Thanks so much for the sweet comment! We hope the new owners are enjoying it :-) The first litter of kittens was sad but it was so nice to have the second litter be so healthy and fun :-)
