Yeah I've been absent lately...sorry. We have been tied up with the house.
We got CO on Tuesday!! Oh my gosh guys I seriously wasn't expecting it. We have some minor things to finish but we get to move in and start enjoying all of the hard work. It will be a slow move as we will still have things at our current residence while we complete the tasks there.
Good news is that now I will have much more time on my hands to work on my furniture projects.
Today I was there all day because we had our new couches, beds & rug delivered. I've been trying to figure out a chair option for the living room. We bought the leather couch but wanted a chair for additional seating. I was killing myself over this decision. I just couldn't find a chair that I loved at a reasonable price. Well today problem solved... When the guys brought the couches (both are the same) guess what happened???? The couch that was to go upstairs wouldn't fit through the rather large stairway. WHAT?!?! I almost had a panic attack. They guy says well what are you going to do? I said well I guess we will have 2 couches in the living area. And, you know what? I love it! It is such a large open area & it really provides some great seating for many guests (which I LOVE).
I am sitting on one and look at that view. The other one is facing the fireplace & the TV will be mounted above fireplace. Sorry for the crappy phone picture. The couches are cramped up right now because I had them on the rug since I don't have felt on the feet of the couches and don't want to scratch the floor. I honestly love this layout and so happy it worked out.
I also put the girls room partly together. How cute is this?
I need a rug for them. Those bunnies I got at Home Goods and they are burlap....so adorable. I will be doing headboards for them once I can find ones I like. In the cubby I purchased a little cedar chest that has a bottom drawer that I need to redo. Such a cute little girls room.
I can't wait to show off every room as it is finished. I think I will try to do a blog with a tour & paint colors. What do you think?
It is all finally coming together....and I couldn't be more ready or excited :)
With much love, peace & happiness!
