Before and After of Our First Home

Updated: Jan 5, 2021

I thought I would share a little about my husband and I's first home since so many of yall (my collectors) are either first-time home buyers or have just purchased a new home.Something about new homes and art seem to go hand-in-hand.

It started in February of 2019 when my parents bought this home as a flip house. We all spent many days and weekends working on this home in hopes of someone buying it.

My parents had done so many things to fix up the house. They had new sheetrock installed in almost every room. The walls were all painted a bright white in every room. New flooring was installed in every room and a beautiful neutral granite was installed in the kitchen and bathrooms. The exterior was painted white was well to freshen up the outdated brick. This house was stripped down from an outdated, forgotten pile of bricks to a simple neutral starting point for its next owners.

By October 2019, it still had not sold. My husband and I were looking for our first home, as we were awaiting his graduation from Mississippi State and moving back to Hattiesburg in December. Everything seems to fall into place for this to become our first home.

Since buying this home in December 2019, we have worked hard to make this house our home.
