We moved into our home a year ago yesterday and it feels like I have a child turning 1! So, please go with me down a little memory lane. In some ways, as is any passage of time, it feels like we’ve been here forever. And then other times it seems like just yesterday. I think that’s just how life feels when you get older-ish (or almost 32!!).
The living room hasn’t had a ton of updates yet, but I’m about to go kung-fu on this room … as soon as I get my saw fixed. (I know you’re so tired of hearing about that … me too! I just wish it was fixed.) I’ve been taking measurements for board and batten. And also testing out new walls colors. More on wall colors on Wednesday.
This was the living room in all of it’s Christmas glory. I can’t wait until we get new paint, board & batten, and more of us on the walls!
The breakfast nook hasn’t been through a whole lot yet either, but I did paint and just recently added a chalkboard.
I hope to hang some curtains soon. It just needs a little warmth and some fabric will take it a long way. I have some ideas rolling around in my head, but just haven’t pulled the trigger yet.
The kitchen has had very little change, so no need for before and after photos. We’ve only painted it, but you all know I have big plans for this room.
Miss A’s Room is definitely the most completed room in the house. Of course she’ll be moving into a big girl bed sometime in the next year, so it’ll all change around at that point.
And then there’s our bedroom, which we’ve spruced up quite a bit. I still need to work on the other side of the room. Maybe we’ll get to show it off before the house turns two!
This was how it was set up when we first moved in and had only painted …
I still have a ton planned to do. You can check out my home goals post for some ideas of what I’ll be tackling. We actually went and bought trees for our front yard yesterday, so once we get those planted
we can cross it off the list. Yay!
I think it is so fun to see how people decorate and build their homes because it is (or should be) a reflection of who they are. It tells our story in a way, which is why I love what I do. I love telling stories through our home and I hope that keeps those we love coming back time and time again.
Don’t miss out on the behind-the-scenes fun!
