Hi My name is Liseth and one of the things I remember most when I was growing up was watching my grandmother sew fabric into the most beautiful creations. That's where my love for sewing came from. I love to travel and learn different cultures. As well hike and spend time with loved ones. My future goal: I hope to one day go to Thailand and Bora Bora.

Beauty in the Eye of the Beholder

Sometimes we can spot beauty or imagine what something may become after we put a little work and shine into something..... That's how it was with this home, when my family first saw this home they thought oh my I don't know about this place. I told them all just give it a chance a little color, some work and love will bring it's beauty out of this charming home. I had taken some before and after pictures of each room, looking back to the before pictures I'm really surprised how much these changes made a difference. Here's a few before and after pictures after working on the home for over 6 months: .
The kitchen I forgot to take a before pic, but luckily I found one from the previous owner:
next step save up for furniture LOL.


  1. Wow, it looks great now! It's remarkable what a difference redecorating can make; it hardly looks like the same place. It looks like your hard work has really paid off!

  2. You have really made the house a home with all your hard work. It looks wonderful!

  3. Ain't it wonderful what a little paint, intuition and just plain hard work will do! It looks great!!!

  4. Love the big space from the kitchen into the other room. You are doing great.

  5. Beautiful! I love the new color of the kitchen cabinets!

  6. Good job! I'm always amazed that so many people love white walls! Oy! not me!

    1. I grew up with white walls, my mom always said it made the rooms bigger...when we purchased this home I told my fiance, we need color! LOL. Now my mom loves the look of this house and she is slowly putting color in her home too.
