We bought this house November 2017, when I was almost 7 months pregnant and totally fell in love with it. This is actually our second home together, we bought and sold a beautiful condo downtown Toronto which was legit such a fun place to live.
Anyways this home is only 6 years old and was built by the previous owners, and that is always brought up in conversations we have about all the things I want to change. The truth is its just not our style! Yes they are new fixtures, new lighting, new countertops but I don’t feel like this is ours..yet.
Priorities thou, means actually paying off this house before we start thinking about doing any major renovations. Also figuring out our 5 year plan and if we’re even planning on staying here or building our own home in the future.
Without spending a fortune demolishing the closet and bathroom I decided I would start with a fresh coat of paint, shiplap, new lighting and fixtures and keep the cost relatively low.
So far I have painted the walls using Behr Paint‘s Simply White, in their Low Odour Paint & Primer in One .
I always loved Wayfair and I’ve been buying things from them since we moved in here. Its exciting because Wayfair is having their Labour Day Clearance Sales and I thought this would be the perfect time to show you what I’m ordering and give you a couple options.
I am 75% sure I am going to add shiplap instead of wallpaper. I just love the look of shiplap and super easy to put up, but I’m not ready to give up on my wallpaper idea either.
As for the lighting, it’s on major sale right now and the two Chandeliers I am obsessing over are both included!
If you noticed we have two different lamp shades, both were from our old condo and I just don’t feel like they fit our new style.
Lastly, the door handles and I cannot decide for the life of me if I should get brass or matte black! What do you think?
