My home is much more meager than most of the homes posted on here, but it is our first home, and we're aiming to do some nice updates/upgrades.
Our house was built in 1973 and has many of the original features - stylish linoleum, wall paper, wainscoting, fixtures, popcorn ceilings, outdated appliances, carpet, etc.
Here are some pics of the move-in condition:
Rockin' basement (high-tech entertainment center)

First project - scraping popcorn ceiling texture, followed by hand-texture and fresh paint.
Nice and smooth
Textured, painted, and new ceiling fans (remote controlled)

Next up - new appliances, windows, and sliding door.
Stainless Steel LG range, dishwasher, and built-in microwave
Original windows - most wouldn't open and were very water stained
Fully insulated, Double paned, double hung windows
Fully insulated, Triple paned sliding door

Next step - painted bathroom cabinets, remove wainscoting and trim, remove entry tile
Black painted cabinets and metallic silver hardware
No more tile, but still needs floor sanding

Whew! I'm finally done texturing the main living areas. It took way longer than I anticipated, but I was more concerned with doing the best job possible. It took around 14 hours total just for the texture. We have Friday off, so we'll be laying the paint.
It's hard to capture the detail in a picture, but this shows the change:
Last wall, still drying
And I never really showed the appliances installed (cabinets will be refinished) (excuse the mess)
More updates after paint...
