At the beginning of the year I mentioned, kinda off-hand that we sold our second home. And I even showed a few photos from the updates we did to the (now old) house.
I thought that a nice way to wrap up that house with a bow and for a little closure and posterity’s sake I’d share with you some parting shots of our second home.
This room was basically unchanged the whole time we were here. Our “formal” living room was never really used – except for epic dance parties and when we used it as a guest room for visitors.
Always loved our dining room. The only somewhat DIY that we did in here was replace the light fixture with the one from our kitchen after we found a new light for our eat-in kitchen. Did some sewing projects here and shared some delicious meals with friends and family.
Refinished the kitchen table and chairs and repainted the walls, and replaced the light fixture but otherwise this kitchen was already renovated when we moved in.
Lots of transformations and updates in this room. New furniture, new paint, new floors, new curtains and a new rug before we left.
Our master bedroom had its fair share of updates too. New paint, new furniture and bedding, new drapes and some bedside table makeovers. And no room in this house had more of a transformation than our master bedroom ensuite.
Harry’s room was transformed from our guest room once we had made enough people to fill all of our bedrooms. I’m so happy with how this room turned out even though there was still more I wanted to do to it. This room had a new coat of paint, and was the room that kicked off the new trim colour throughout the house. Our DIY dresser still lives in Harry’s new room. One of my favourite projects. And so easy!
So many happy memories in this nursery.
And finally the basement that was one of the last big projects that we tackled by sprucing it up with some paint and making the boys’ playroom a lot more functional and organized.
The playroom project in that house is another one that I was so happy with. I’m hoping to create a similar space for the boys in the new house.
So that’s it! That’s the grand tour of our second home. I have so many great memories of our time in that house – from decorating the nursery and bringing home both boys, many happy meals (and McHappy meals), and hosting friends and family and watching the boys run around in the yard and out to the park. It was such a good house and we’re happy it has found another great family.
PS: All of these amazing photos of the house were taken by the talented Ryan at First Look. So if you’re in need of real estate photography give him a call.
