Making A House A Home

I am a firm believer in the fact that four walls do not make a home. It takes the people you live with and love to make your house a home. I also think it helps to fill that home with things that you love, making the rooms places you love to be, a safe haven from the world.

We moved into my parents' house almost 7 years ago and beside doing a small bathroom redo we really didn't change much in the other rooms of the house, especially the main living areas. Until this month. Once we received our tax refund we were determined to change a few things in the house to make it more of a home.

Here are the before and after pictures of the living room and dining room. We are planning on doing the kitchen with next year's refund.

We still have some art work to hang in the dining room and we are started to put money away to have the floors redone, but we are super happy with the results!

It is so nice to come home and to love being home.

I am not sure how it started. I guess maybe it was a genuine illness at first. Then the teenager babysat a little late on a Saturday night. ...
