Let's not drag this out any longer.
This post is full of pictures
and the home decorating is not
but it does finally feel like home.
The living room is a difficult
room to photograph
because it's narrow and
it really doesn't get a lot of
The large windows in the front of the house
are under our patio cover
so the light doesn't always stream in.
I realize I should have taken this picture
with the television turned off.
I just don't feel like retaking it..
I am loving my new floors.
I love the fact that
when I clean them, they are really clean.
Unlike the nasty dog hair carpet
that was in here before.
The rug is a a cheap Target rug and
it is probably temporary.
Right now it serves as a place for the dog to lay on
and it's easy to clean.
I like the pop of color it adds to the room.
The living room is open to the dining room.
So far, this is my favorite room in the house.
I love my new red Karastan rug.
It was a splurge for us but I love
how dramatically it changes the space.
I originally had it in the living room
but that's where the dog spends most of his
napping time and this rug and
a white dog don't mix.
How is my dog not bald?
I can't believe how much he sheds this time of year.
I moved the liquor into the dining room
and set it up on my Great Grandma Pearl's
(You can see my new baseboards pretty well in this pic)
Not sure how she would feel about that.
Next to the booze is a
sign I made out of wood slats I had in the garage,
painter's tape, and spray paint.
(It May Just Be The Booze Talking But I Want You To Know That I Love Booze)
That sign cracks me up
almost every time I walk into the room.
The reading nook is right off the
The coffee table has been in my family for years.
When I was six,
I wrote my name in crayon on the underside of it.
The bowl of antique wooden apples
was given to me by Sally.
I've been looking for large wooden apples
forever and couldn't find what I wanted
so she gave me hers.
She's like that.
The kitchen is just to the left of this area.
When we were talking about doing something
about the flooring a year or so ago,
we were going to do it in stages.
I am so glad now that we did the entire house
all at once.
I don't think I've ever owned a home
that had one consistent flooring material.
It makes my life so much easier.
So there is my mini home tour so far.
Again, there are more projects on the back burner.
I need to work on my office.
I work from home and have my computer set up
on a fold up camping table.
My files are in a litter box.
A NEVER USED LITTER BOX, thank you.
Thanks for stopping by!
