I am so excited to share with you the Final Reveal of our Waco Fixer Upper Home. I absolutely love how it turned out.
This Waco Fixer Upper project has been an absolute labor of love. If you’re thinking of starting your own fixer-upper project, or if you’re just curious about what it’s like, keep reading. You won’t believe the difference between the before and after photos!
It’s done. The uninhabitable, animal infested home that we bought a year ago has been transformed. And my dream to furnish the living areas of our Waco Fixer Upper home with a mixture of fine furniture and vintage antiques actually worked! The furnishings were provided by Overstock and I absolutely love how they look in our home. #ad
I had to post the “before” photo one last time because I still cannot believe how far we have come. Oh my!
This is our living room and you can find the sofa, loveseat, side chair, rug, table lamps, and wood side table at Overstock.com. I mixed these new items with a vintage white armoire, chest/coffee table, side table, accessories, wooden bins, and architectural wall piece. I found all of these items at The Round Top Antiques Show in Round Top, Texas.
And don’t worry about the off-white furniture in an Airbnb. I already have covers for these pieces.
I love this pouf too. It’s also from Overstock.
I decided to hang the drapes almost to the ceiling and I love how they pull the eye upward to the one hundred-year-old ceiling.
In case you ever thought that drapes, curtain rods, and a rug (and rug pad) weren’t necessary, look at this picture below and then compare it to the one above. Wow. What a difference. This is a great example of how drapes and a rug can finish off a room. There is no comparison.
The electrician and I made the chandelier and I love it.
The architectural piece above the french doors actually serves a purpose in this room. The height of all of the windows and molding in the living room and kitchen are about sixteen inches higher than the french doors. By adding the architectural piece above the french doors, the heights are now all the same. It’s a subtle but dramatic change and I think it really makes a difference.
I won’t be sharing the kitchen just yet. It’s not done and not quite functional. My contractor has promised me the house will be done by November 1st. I will be in Waco next weekend hosting a few groups of bloggers so I promise to take some kitchen photos then!
A lot of people have asked how I managed to pick out all of my furniture online. You can read more here about that here to find out my tricks and tips.
Waco is such a special place and I am really excited to be able to share it with so many people. We have had people stay here for girls trips, family reunions, of course Baylor events and it makes my heart so happy. You can find the listing on AirBnB or VRBO.
In no time at all I am going to decorate our Waco home for the holidays, I am so excited I can hardly stand it.
