I may have peed my pants a little from all the excitement/holy-cow-now-we-are-grown-ups feelings that I got when I walked into OUR house today! And then I may have peed a little from the holy-cow-there-is-so-much-to-do feelings that soon followed. Either way, I'm putting on my big girl panties and digging right in! We did a lot of work in that little house today, but first... I'm going to show you what it looked like on the day we closed!!

This house was listed on Zillow.. but only with like 12 pictures, and I don't know what genius thought that would be enough for this nosy house watcher. So here, I present, more than 12 pictures for your viewing pleasure!

(Feel free to judge the wall colors - there are some CRAZY combinations!!)


You guys. YOU GUYS. THE VIEW IS AMAZING! PLUS it's fall. Bonus.

The door on the left is our REAL front door... but here in the county, 
everybody comes in the side or back door, 
which is the door on the right... weird, right?? It's also a little sad,
the front door is so cute!!! Yes,

Anywho... the side door leads right into the.... 


 The last two pictures are a pretty accurate portrayal of the FIREBALL ORANGE 
that they painted this mud room. Why they did that??? No idea.

The mudroom leads to the...


Complete with the most beautiful Thomas Kinkade-ish border wallpaper you EVER did see,
and these lovely red brick-ish tiles on the floor.

Oh man. 

It ALSO has a cool bar top (which is totally useless) and, AND 
a window air conditioning unit that they cute a hole in the house for.

Oh man.

It ALSO has a cool fireball orange pantry door because WHY NOT??

And this cool light pot-hangy-thing... which they hung too low.
So many cool things.

The Kitchen is connected to the...


 It's pretty straight forward. Nothing special.

The dining room is next to the...


You have to walk through an archway to get to the family room.
I like archways. This archway is fireball orange. 
It's kinda fun. But it is a little low... That or Kyle and I
are freakishly tall. Or maybe both.

Ok. I did get impatient and put some primer on the wall. But it was only a little bit.
And I can't wait to get this color out of the family room!!

Connected to the family room is the...


Pretty straightforward, pretty boring. It's also fireball orange.
Are you noticing all the fun colors??
 Moving on to the...


This is a good bathroom! It is SO big! It has a HUGE jacuzzi tub, and a big vanity. 
The tiles are also pretty nice. They are blue too.
Can you see all the different, soothing blue colors in this bathroom?
(did you notice that the bathroom closet doors are also blue!! YAY!!)

This bathroom is connected to the hallway and the...


I feel like playing a game now... how many colors can you spot in this picture?
I see lots. Like 6. Which is 5 too many.
I do have to give them props though for painting the closet doors to match.
Not match each other, but the opposite walls. 
That's creativity at work, people!!
I'm also glad that the fireball orange made it to another room.

Across the hallway is the...


This room has an en-suite (yay!!) and HUGE closets.
Double YAY!

Here's a quick peek at the...


Super simple, but is also has a blue closet door!!!

Moving on down to the....


 The inside of our front door is also a nice blue color.
But she painted the whole staircase and landing BROWN.
Well, technically, she didn't paint the WHOLE thing brown....
as you can tell. She decided it was a bad idea at the end.
But the bottom left picture is a cute nook I can't wait to turn into an even cuter nook!!!

This connects to the...


There was actually nothing much wrong with this hallway.
Except for the vinyl tree.. which may or may not have gotten taken down today by
a small army of toddlers....

At one end of the hallway it's...


Colors... so many colors....


This is a BIG ROOM. It even has a little playhouse built into it, which I LOVE!!
It is in the basement so it does have those nasty drop ceilings, but at least there is no
fire orange. There are however, quite a few colors in this room...
(Make sure you notice the matching closet doors!)

It's crazy right?? Yes. It is. 

Then there's the....


Obviously, these are totally finished and we don't have to do anything to these rooms.

Then we have the...


Another totally relaxing, huge, blue bathroom. 
(The closet doors are blue too!)

This is connected to...

This is another BIG ROOM!!
I'm so glad that we have such big basement rooms!
This room also has lots of amazing colors that I can't wait to get rid of....
Make sure you notice the cool blue and green circles which make the transition
from purple to yellow much more appealing!!

The last room in the house is arguably the most important...

(but not in a snobby way....)

Now this room. THIS ROOM. There was a valiant effort put into painting
it the darkest green they could probably find. But, alas, they didn't finish it 
and now I am FORCED to repaint. 

Well, that concludes this little house tour... I know it was super long winded and full of amazing colors....but before you rush off to copy all of our cool colors, just remember, don't.

But in all seriousness, these colors would be fine.... somewhere... else. But in my own house, where I can do WHATEVER I want.... nope. They are going! The sooner the better.

OH! And here's an other picture of fireball orange... because I know you were missing it just now.
