The exterior of the home was painted and the back screened porch. White picket fence was also powered washed and painted a fresh coat of white paint.

You can also check out the before and after photos of the porch project here.
Since the home was only 8 years old and in mint shape, there were no really big updates that were needed at the time. However, there were some small, cosmetic projects that were completed. We painted the whole downstairs and hallway in a Benjamin Moore (Powell Buff).
Since the first floor is all one room, new Levolor bamboo shades were installed in all windows downstairs which I really love.
See previous posting here for dining room.
See previous posting here for living room.
All new stainless steel appliances were purchased for kitchen. More updates to the kitchen will be coming later (with updated subway tiles back splash). I am so excited.
New furniture was bought from Pottery Barn in living room. The dining room purchases included my new candle chandelier, antique farm table, and new bistro chairs and bench.
A new gallery wall going upstairs to the second floor was also created with my Nancy Thomas artwork. See previous posting here.
And last but not least, I started a small hand-poured soy candle business (Palmetto Wicks) in early October. I was very busy with it and it was a lot of fun making candles!! See here.
Hope you had a great 2012 and thanks for visiting!
