The Brown House

Lots of people have been requesting pictures of our condo now that we’re all settled in. As some of you know, we completely remodeled the entire thing before the wedding and it looks amazing! My parents are the owners (and our landlords) and wanted to remodel it as soon as the old tenant was out anyways, and we just happened to be the next tenants! Lucky us! Every inch of wall was repainted, new carpet went in upstairs, and beautiful hardwood floors went in downstairs. There are new baseboards, a new sink, refrigerator, microwave, and dishwasher, the cupboards got repainted and so much more!

It took us much longer than I thought it would to fully settle in, and some remodeling was still going on when we first got there. Now I feel like things have really come together (on the first floor at least) and we are really proud of how it turned out!


Here’s a panoramic of the living room. The couch and chairs were given to us by a family friend which was such a blessing. As some of you know, there was an issue with our Target registry, some stuff would not come off even after it had been bought and I wound up with SIX crock pots! Well, after returning them, and a few other duplicate things, we were able to buy the rest of the living room furniture and some bedroom furniture!


We got a great deal on a canvas print of our first dance picture, I LOVE it!


This is one of my favorite things in the whole house. At first, we had no idea what to do with it, it was designed for a TV but ours was too small, after playing around with it for a while, I came up with this! The letters were a wedding gift from my cousin Tara and her husband, and I put framed pictures of the proposal and our first look on either side. It came out so cute!


We’re trying to figure out how to conceal all those wires, any suggestions?

Our table was also given to us by another family friend, we were so blessed with every aspect of this house! We got TONS of champagne, wine, scotch, and beer glasses as wedding gifts. So much that they wouldn’t fit in the cabinets! So we got that little cart for them. On top is a beertender we got as a wedding gift that Kurtis LOVES. I don’t drink beer, but I’m really glad we got at least a couple of gifts that he can enjoy! (All the pots, pans, silverware, and dishes were way exciting for me! Him, not so much)

And that’s as far as we’ve gotten! Our bedroom is just about done and I recently started putting together the guest room/office. I’ll put up a post with pictures of those once they’re done!

Our condo coming together was the result of a lot of help from a lot of people! Thank you so much to everyone who helped clean, paint, lay carpet, etc. A HUGE thank you goes out to the U-Turn for Christ guys and Linn Garber who did SO much for us! And of course my parents 😉 We could not be happier or more blessed.
