Kitchen Reno: Before and After

After 13 weeks, my kitchen is almost done. Hallelujah! In the spirit of updating our Cheverly homes, I thought I’d share how mine turned out. When we moved into our current Cheverly home, it didn’t have a kitchen. It was a HUD owned property and we were told that we would have to put 80K…

Before and After: Hoarder Home to Home Tour Home

Let me ask you this question? Would you consider buying a home in this state?! My guess is no although I’d be super excited to buy it if the home had potential. I know. I love these major fixer uppers. Well, the home had amazing potential and someone did buy it. They turned it into…

Cheverly Home Tour 2017

This past weekend I had the privilege of taking pictures for the 2017 Home Tour. I can’t tell you how trilled I am for you to see some amazing Cheverly homes and to get ideas for your own. The owner of the home above should be an interior decorator. She has an amazing eye for…

Before and After: Staircase Makeover

Huge huge thanks to one of Cheverly’s newest residents, Brittany Pfister for writing this post.  I met Brittany and her husband last weekend at the American Legion. They are a ton of fun and have really great taste in decor. Here you go! Last year, my husband & I stumbled upon Cheverly by what seems…

Before and After: My Walk-through Room

This is my second home in Cheverly. I fell in love with it for a number of reasons–the large open space, the two sets of stairs, the tall ceilings… Boy oh boy, it was a ton of work. My husband thought I was crazy when we first looked at it but I was thrilled about…

Morning Glory Design: After Pictures

Didn’t Joanna do a great job with this house?! I think she could offer many of us some great ideas on how to update our old homes. The front door and the kitchen are my favorite items- but really, it all looks great. You can contact Joanna at joannaheumann21@gmail.com for your interior design needs. Apparently she…

Morning Glory Design: Before Pictures

Hello friends. Today I have a really fun post that I’m excited to share. Meet Joanna Finnegan of Morning Glory Design. I haven’t met her (yet) but I hope to soon. Just like me, Joanna bought a fixer upper in Cheverly. (I’ve bought two and just LOVE fixing them up) Today I will share her…

Curb Appeal

Every time I drive by the house above in Cheverly I always think, “wow- that house has curb appeal!” And it truly does. What you cannot see from this photo is a push lawnmower in front with flowers and a swing. Compliment that with a well manicured lawn, a pot of flowers by the blue painted front door plus…

Before and After: Extreme Basement Makeover

This was our basement 3 weeks ago. Our contractor showed up and turned this ‘interesting’ Cheverly basement into this beautiful setting: There is so much you can do with our beautiful homes. That’s why I don’t shy away from the older properties that need some work like this house on Parkway on the market for…
