We’ve been in our house for 2 months already. Several of you have asked (nicely!) to see some pictures of the place, and I’ve been putting it off because OMG I NEED TO DECORATE! THE WALLS ARE SO NAKED! but then I realized I’d probably be 50 before that ever gets done. Also nearly the entire house is painted the exact same (boring) color of peach/beige/taupe and while it’s not offensive, it is a bit monotonous so I’m currently working on finding some new colors. But if I waited for THAT to be done, I’d be 90 for sure.
So! How about a tour?

In addition to Mucho Cabinet & Counterspace, off to the right of the butler’s pantry is the laundry room. With my sparkly new washer & dryer! (which were a totally unexpected but necessary purchase because, um, we forgot we had an electric dryer and whoops! no electric hookup. And we had my uncle come to put in an electric line but ran into issues with location and no more room on the electrical box and blah blah blah, long story short: I convinced Dan to let me buy these babies and you know what? Doing laundry is almost not sucky now!)
(See that centerpiece on the table? FIFTEEN BUCKS AT COSTCO. I love Costco.)
(Those bar stools? $25 a piece. Which, if you’ve ever shopped for bar stools, you know that is Dirt Cheap. Holy crap are bar stools a ripoff. Almost as bad as garbage cans.)
It’s more of a balcony at this point- small and no steps going to the yard. But we’ve got some ideas and plans, baby.
That’s Inksplash Designs Headquarters there on the left. Impressive, I know.
Her room is gigantic. My Childhood Self is extremely jealous.
She also has her own bathroom. (well, she WILL eventually have to share it with a sibling, but I had to share a bathroom with a sister, a mom, a dad, and a washer and dryer as a kid, so really: not a bad deal for her. Plus there are TWO SINKS.)
The office/current storage room. The room has been unpacked since I took this picture, but there is still that stack of pictures and miscellaneous wall decor sitting there. I can’t wait to finish hanging everything so I can put some fluffy pillows on that window seat.
It’s not finished, but it’s big and clean and great for storage and the BowFlex for now. Someday we’ll finish it and made it into a game room, and probably add another bathroom down here as well. (That door on the far right goes out to the backyard.)
And that completes the tour! Stop by if you’re ever in the neighborhood, we can share some cookies or something.
