Welcome to Dovershire..

August 10th, 2012

Before I start showing you guys the fun stuff we have been up to over here, we have to start at the beginning.

Here is what our new bundle of joy looked like on Day 1.

Going up!

The doorway to the left of the top of the stairs leads to the Master Bedroom. To the right is the Guest Bath and other Bedrooms.

The Smallest Master Bath ever created….

Hallway to van’s room and the 2 guest rooms

van’s Nursery

The Hall Linen Closet

Guest Room #2 {will be van’s big boy room one day}

Guest Room #1

I think the only spaces I left out were the back hall that leads to the garage and the back yard area.  Otherwise, there you have it in all its 60′s paint color glory.

I’m imaging that if we waited a few more years our paint colors would be back in style.  But I’m not patient enough to find out.

So our First project has been to paint THE ENTIRE HOUSE.  Yes, you read that correctly.  Every wall in this house has been painted as well as the trim.

Here’s a sneak peek…

Mr. vB and I agree that it looks like a totally different house now.

Now just to finish unpacking and the real fun can begin!

    Totty – so happy to see photos of the house. The rooms and layout are great. I can’t wait to see more pics of them painted!
