After living in Denver for almost four years (and the summer we were going to get married) Shawn and I decided to buy a house to start investing in our own place.

The day we closed on our 1st house!

Here is a tour of the home which I will keep updating as we renovate different rooms.  Each picture will eventually have a link to the Before & After process of making our house our home in case you want to see what we’ve done with the place so far :)  Some of the house is still “in process” and I have big plans to update so will mention that as we get to those rooms.

(Most of my “before” pictures were taken on the day we put the offer on the house.)

UPSTAIRS HALLWAY:  Shawn is a huge Cowboys fan so I gave him this canvas for Christmas two years ago.



I mixed and matched picture frames that I already had on the other side of the hallway…
