First Anniversay

Today marks the one year anniversary of us moving into our house!  This year has gone by so fast and we have done so much.  In honor of this day I am going to share not one but 28 pictures with you.  They are before (Mickey quickly took these before stuff got moved in) and afters (my attempt at a similar angle) of the rooms.  Most of them have dramatically changed.

Walking in the front door you enter the foyer.

To the left is the living room.  (still needs paint and...something)

To the right is the dining room.

Straight ahead from the front door is the kitchen/breakfast/family room.

Off the kitchen is a hall with a bathroom...

...and the studio.  (still needs decor on the wall)

Upstairs we have all the bedrooms.  The master.

And its bathroom.  (I need a brave painter to reach the high ceiling and walls.  It will be a lighter shade of the master.)

I am happy with the progress we've made thus far.  As you can see most of the walls are blank.  I have a few ideas of what I want to try.  I'm sure I'll post those as they happen.  As for right now I'm loving the minimalist vibe we have going on.  It's totally changing the way I look at things too.  I was at Hobby Lobby with Mickey a while ago and I kept pointing out all the things I liked but then I'd say, "Oh, I don't have anywhere/any room to put that."  Which is hilarious since the house does have plenty of room but we were crammed into the old house for too long that I don't want that to happen here.  At least not for several years or decades.

I hope you have enjoyed the tour of our house.
