Lakewood Home Tour

I am making changes to my other blog (featuring Brox and baby sis) and decided it was time to port our first home over to the house blog so we can look back one day and see where it all started out.
I loved this house and we have so many great memories here. It will always be a part of who we are.

We absolutely adore our home. It had so much charm when we bought it and through the years have added our touches to truly make it our "home." It will definitely be bittersweet when we leave this house. Lots and lots of memories.
August 2007-We got the keys!

As soon as we closed on the house we started attempting to refinish the hardwood floors ourselves. We screwed them up and ended up having to pay twice as much to get them done the right way. Now if it is a bigger task then painting we hire someone to do it:)


I had to include some snow pictures!

and I had to throw this one in because Clyde is so darn cute.

Living Room



Changes made: neutral paint and better decor!

I love our house at Christmas so I had to include some of the tree!

Brox's Nursery

Brox's nursery was featured on the homepage of project nursery and was nominated for nursery of the month.

I used chalkboard paint on the closet door and had mom write this Winnie the Pooh quote on it. Jordan and I were searching for the perfect quote that would have meaning form us to Brox and as soon as I came across this I cried and we both new it was perfect. 

I had this custom made on etsy with Jordan's badge number.

Free wall art using the left over fabric from the bedding and curtains grandma made. The bird is from the custom baby shower thank you cards.

Vintage frame I already had hung over a cross stitch quote from etsy

Old records from mom's house. Some were mine and Sherry's and some were my aunt Tammy's

The "sunshine" sign was the first purchase I made for the nursery. My mom and I used to sing this together when I was little.

Jordan's shoes!

Master Bedroom

Back Room



Changes made: used part of the room to build a walk in closet for me. The remainder of the room is used as a craft room/mudroom
