By Popular Demand: The New House!




Ok, ok. I get it. People want to see pics of the new house. I was just waiting for the worst of the  boxes to be put away. But now we have a variety of very livable spaces: the kitchen, living room, master bedroom, bathroom and nursery are the most put together. I suppose Brian's office is too. The guest room is an inflatable mattress in a sea of boxes. The media room. Well, it has a tv in it! But nothing to sit on! We've been watching Game of Thrones on a bunch of blankets! The playroom is rudimentary, at best, and really won't be utilized much until we get a decent rug in there and some seating for grown ups!

On our to-do list

  • tie backs for Lorelei's curtains
  • some sort of buffet/hutch for the China in the living room
  • cushions on top of the black shelf in the living room to make more seating
  • more cabinetry in the kitchen
  • paint the wheeled cart green
  • new rug in the play room
  • table and chairs in the play room
  • furniture for the media room
  • Meg's sewing/work station in the media room
  • Hang art/mirrors
  • A real bed in the guest room
  • Bookshelves in the guest room
And that's just to start with.


But a lot has already been done.
Lorelei's reading nook. Made those blackout curtains myself!

Master bedroom

Upstairs bath. Featuring 5 different kinds of marble and faux marble! Yay?

Living room. Pictures on the mantle = not permanent

Entry way. LOVE the new curtains.

Dining area.

Kitchen

Downstairs playroom

The entire downstairs used to be the basement, so there are some interesting architectural details. That door leads to Brian's office. You don't want to see it.

Downstairs bathroom AKA my least favorite room in the house. It's just kind of yucky.

So there's a lot to be done, for sure. But baby steps, you know. Baby steps.
