If you hadn't noticed, I haven't exactly been forthcoming with "after" photos of our new house.
I have selfishly been waiting for all of our furniture to be moved in (meanwhile, it is "staging" our home across the street), all pictures to be hung, all decor to be in place, a perfectly clean and in-order house plus some great lighting to take photos with the "good camera" before I was going to share the final product with you. All in a detailed photo strip with 'before' and 'during' photos, naturally.
But then I came to my senses: none of these things will be happening in the foreseeable future!
Meanwhile you have been following along (perhaps by default) with our project since October, patiently waiting for an end result, and I have failed to give you a proper finale.
Shame on me.
So, selfishness aside, here are a few snapshots. With my cell phone. Still settling in. No prior prepping (okay fine - I windex-ed the fingerprints off the glass door and wiped down the stainless steel...for the millionth time).
|and our soon to be master bedroom / mattress on the floor college dorm room.|
|Along with the second bathroom...|
|...and the laundry room (my second favorite space). Seriously. Our new washer does not have an agitator and can wash towels and quilts without sounding like an earthquake. It's amazing.|
|We love the large backyard and a garage sale playhouse was the first white trash, I mean fun, thing to adorn the yard ;)|
|I have big plans for an outdoor living room of sorts complete with a farm table, hanging lights and shade sails. Chris tells me to hold my horses for a while before any new projects... We shall see.|
|Future "urban garden" perhaps?|
Needless to say, we are enjoying the fruits of our labor. Thanks for following our renovations!
And three cheers for simultaneous uninterrupted nap time to get this post done!!!
