I haven't even had a minute to post about my house progress. And I barely have a minute now, so I'll make it brief. But I promised some photos, so here they are.
My mom came down to help me this weekend, and I don't know what I would have done without her help!
I painted the living/dining room and left white edges going around the walls. I saw it in a magazine somewhere and thought it was really cool. Plus, not having to paint the edges was a nice bonus!
My office was painted in a Tiffany blue with a chocolate brown accent wall. I really like the way it turned out! That bench is a new Expedit bookcase at IKEA. Hopefully I can get a few little cushions for the top. A perfect window seat!
And I finally got a big Expedit bookcase! Seems like a staple for all crafty ladies. The only problem with this room is the small closet. I put up some more wire shelves, but I'm not sure it's going to be enough.
This is what my living room currently looks like. Rob made so many trips back and forth with my mom's SUV. I'm hoping we can put most of the boxes away by the time we move the furniture in on Saturday!
This is my favorite part of the house...the kitchen! Kind of ironic since I hate cooking. But look at how cute it is! I was worried about painting the walls purple initially, but I LOVE it!
And this is the cute table we got from Craigslist. Perfect for the room! We picked up the chairs at IKEA last weekend. And that milk bottle came from ebay.
That's it for now! We also painted Rob's room last night but I have yet to take any photos. I love my home so far! The only issue I ran into was the oven. I tried to preheat it and after ten minutes, all the smoke alarms in the house went off. Yikes. I guess I have to look into that.
Let me know what you think so far!
