We are all moved in to the new house! Mostly, at least. There are still small things and plants at our other house, but the bulk of it is here. It's really been kind of comical to me in some ways—moving things from a new, basically pristine house into this old one. Leaving a new bathroom to a tiny one with blue tile ...you know, things like that kind of make me laugh and question, "what in the world are we doing?" Only for a split second, though. We are so ready for the adventure this home will bring us. I just hope it brings us a new kitchen and master bedroom/bathroom soon!
Here are some random snapshots of the house and moving process so far.
This is the formal living room—basically the first thing you see when you come in the front door.
The room below will be the guest room.
...and this will be Baby Boy's room!
The kitchen. The plan is to take this room down to the studs. We will change the appliance arrangement, get new cabinets/fixtures/counters, and make the space flow a little better. We went ahead and bought new appliances over Black Friday weekend and it seems as though our measurements may have been a smidgen off. AKA, we have a refrigerator hanging out in the middle of the kitchen until Brandon can take a saw to the counters/cabinets tonight.
This is the back room. It's going to be our casual living room. I'm home waiting for the sofas to be delivered today.
I want to try painting this red mosaic tile floor a light gray color before we just go and replace it. Brandon says, "It's beautiful the way it is. I honestly love it.," but I just can't believe he truthfully believes that, can you?
We are also going to paint the fireplace all white and the wooden beams white, too.
I'm so excited about that room above because it's going to be full of baby toys, comfy sofas, and will have a really laid back vibe that the rest of the house might lack ...and it leads off to a screened porch that Winston's going to love. It's going to be a happy room. But I need to get my hands on it first.
First two nights in this house are down! Hope you're ready to follow along on a lot of home improvement projects. There will be a. LOT.
