Welcome to our 1950’s fixer upper home tour. Today I am sharing exactly what our home looked like when we first received the keys. We bought this home in July 2019 and little did we know what we were getting into. This home was built in the 1950’s and not much has been done to it since then. In my mind all we needed to do was a little painting, and maybe redo some fixtures and simply move in. As it turns out almost everything is going to need to be fixed up. Sooner than later!
After we received the keys our first job was to have all the walls painted a fresh white color. We went with Frost White. It is shocking how much a little paint can transform a room.
Since we moved in I have redone the Front Yard and I finally finished our Guest room.

This is our original 1950’s kitchen. Check out my pinterest to see all of our renovation ideas.
Here is our giant empty living room.
This is our master bedroom. From the look of these walls I think this was a DIY project that went wrong. Who remembers the sponge paint technique? This is why painting was a must!
Here is a suggestion to everyone who is moving out, please take your shower curtain with you.
Our second matter of business was to get rid of this carpet. Not only was the carpet dirty, but it smelled horrible. I decided to rip out and replace the carpet before we moved our furniture in.
There are so many questions I have about past decor fads. Why would anyone paint part of a fire place green?
Next on my renovation list is the bathrooms. They all need some major updates.
Here is our guest room before we renovated. With a little paint and furniture I was able to renovate this guest room into something bright and airy.
The nice thing about the 1950’s were the closet designs. Every room has an extra storage area above each closet. No room went to waste back then.
The best part about this house so far is the yard! We have a huge outdoor area to run around and play.
We are super excited to start renovating this 1950’s fixer upper home. In the first 2 months we were able to accomplish quite a lot. Follow along on all of our renovations by joining my email list here:
