Austin Home Tour - Downstairs

Here are some of the final pictures that were taken to list our Austin home on the market. If you would like to take a look at the other areas of the home, you can check here, here, and here.

We'll start with the family room, which was the last project we were working on when we found out we would be moving.




My favorite room in the house, the kitchen... We finished this room last fall, and I absolutely love it and will hopefully recreate it one day!





And finally, a peak at the half bath

Austin Home Tour - Upstairs

Moving upstairs, here are a few pictures of the master bedroom and one of the guest rooms and bathroom. The upstairs was going to be one of our next projects, mainly the bathrooms, but as I mentioned a few days ago, everything was put on hold once we realized we would be moving. So here it is in all it's 1990's glory...

Austin Home Tour - 2

Yesterday we left off with pictures from the front of the house and entry, and today's pictures are of the dining room and sitting area. We decided to keep our chandelier, so we had to replace it with a new light just in case a prospective buyer would get attached to our chandelier.

In case you are curious or do not remember, this is our chandelier that we decided to keep:

Austin Home Tour

As I mentioned yesterday, we are packing up and heading to Denver very soon, which means we needed to sell our Austin home. I will share some of the professional pictures that were taken for the listing over the next few days. I thought I would start with the front of the house and entry.

Please ignore the dirt bald patch in the yard (sorry Jett!). I may have slipped on my watering duties a time or  two hundred. Those Bravo Real Housewives can be so distracting.

Here are a few outside shots of the front of the house and the entry.



If you would like a little history, you can read about painting the door and stair rail black and the entry decor here and here.

Rocky Mountain High

Wow, it has been a while, but there have been a lot of changes since I last posted. The changes are one of the main reasons I put blogging on hold, especially blogging about our home. I have received many questions regarding the progress of our family room and other home projects, but the truth is all projects came to a halt.

We have known for a quite a while now that we would be moving, but we were not 100% sure where. We didn't want to keep putting money into the house or purchasing items that "fit" our current home if we were going to be moving to another place....so we decided all home projects would be put on hold.

We finally know where we will be in the near future, and I am finally happy to share that we will be moving to Denver, Colorado. It is definitely a bittersweet move. We love Austin and love being close to our family and friends, but we welcome a new experience and REAL seasons! We were just there house hunting, (new home projects, YAY!) and the leaves on the trees are gorgeous and it was so nice walking around outside and not sweating in October! Also, I can actually wear my hair down ;) This Texas humidity isn't so nice to this thick, wavy hair.



We put our house on the market and sold it and purchased a new one in Denver, which means lots of packing and unpacking and just overall chaos. I will share pictures of our home within the next few days, thanks to our wonderful Realtor with Triple Mint Realty for allowing me to share the pictures.

Stay tuned, lots to share!
