Finally have 1 room that's totally finished. The others all have one or more things to do, but it's ok. The only room that has a deadline is the guest room as college guy comes home next month for a week.
View from the front door. Make a note of the colors you see here....
View of front door from living room/kitchen area. Make note of the tiles...story on that later...
Had to retouch photo a bit, but here is more of the study. This room alone has 1/2 the amount of windows I had in my last house. We have a total of 18 windows.....I got estimates on shutters and blinds and thank goodness for sales! I don't normally like white blinds, but they work here. In fact, due to the sunshine here during the day so far, no need for heat...yet.
2 out of 4 couches/loveseats in this house. It was a former model home, so it all was included. Some we like, some we didn't, thus the work in progress.
Perfect place for my table runner I think.
I do have a bookcase and bench that was originally ours in here. Each room so far has something that we previously owned which is good.
This room has no tv and will become a nice place to sit and read/knit or talk.
The story I hinted at was when this house went on the market, I showed it to hubby. One good thing about previewing houses online, you definately can weed out a lot. He saw that above tile and a few other rooms and was like...nope. Well, had the one we decided to buy next door to this one not been already sold, we'd never viewed it.
So, we decided to view this one and once we got into the kitchen/living room combo, we knew it was home. It wasn't the furniture being included that sold it, or the entire YELLOW walls of the house either. Next part was wheeling and dealing.....with success...obviously ;)
Now if I can get the dining room table cleared from bills, etc. I take some pic's soon to show you the main part we hang out in.
I will repaint it....one day...for right now, I'm trying to embrace my nemesis color...pale yellow ;)
