We bought our 1976 southern California home in October, 2014 and took it through some major renovations before we moved in this past January, 2015. It’s still very much a work in progress but we’re slowly making it our own. (Before pictures are from our initial walk-through.)
So far, all we’ve done to the exterior is replace the old aluminum windows. We have plans to paint and remove the dated faux-balcony above the garage.
Entryway – Before
Living Room – Before
The first room you see when you walk in still has no furniture in it. Sigh. Progress takes time… and a lot of patience!
Living Room – Progress
New hardwood floors, windows, paint (Misty Moonstone by Glidden) and new railings.
Kitchen – Before

We raised the ceilings and turned the wall between the kitchen & dining room into a half wall.

We installed hardwood floors throughout the house, replaced the old appliances and added new Shaker-style cabinetry with granite countertops.
