House Pictures

I've had lots of requests for house pictures, and the truth is that I wanted to wait until it was all decorated up and pretty. But let's be honest here. That just might never happen!

So after spending Christmas Eve making everything all sparkly and clean in preparation for company, I snapped a few pictures. And then never shared them. ;) And now we've spent the last several days actually hanging pictures on the wall and making some changes so I thought I better post them now as a kind of "before" and then in the next couple of weeks I'll hopefully post "after" shots.

And just a general disclaimer: we clearly don't have things decorated, and the poor kid rooms still have boxes because Camden doesn't have a dresser and poor Rory doesn't have a toybox or bookshelf. We have a 3 day weekend coming up, and we're hoping to do some rearranging and more unpacking. Oh, and the house is not nearly as dark as these pics make it look - it was after dark and I just used my iphone and did no editing.

Our unfinished bedroom, but the first room to have something up on the walls.

The kitchen (standing in the hall outside our bedroom); there is a bathroom/laundry room camera left.

Living Room (view from the dining area). Until 2 days prior to this picture, we didn't have end tables, but Brian found two mismatched ones at Goodwill that are solid wood and fit exactly into the open slots. We're currently painting them an incredibly bright color.

My first attempt at decorating a mantle.

Camden's room, which is much larger than it looks here.

Tiny bonus room area that houses the desk (a.k.a. where I live).

Rory's little room. She's the only one with curtains hung; and I actually have everything to decorate her room, it just has to be done.

And that's it! I am full of decorating ideas, but my budget is nil right now so we're living with clean and simple. Hoping to finish up a few simple projects this week that I'm really excited about.
