After all of that house drama, the home we made an offer on finally became ours while I was in China. And what’s more, is we’ve been living there for about two weeks now! As I mentioned before, I went kamikaze on the painting in the living room but thankfully my husband followed along willingly. We still don’t have all of it painted , but I have some pictures of what we have painted!
They’re not the best quality since they’re with my camera phone, but you can get the picture!
(we want to paint the wall with all the windows, we just know it will take forever so we’re taking a break for now)
From the other angle. Our future plans include staining our table that I got from an ex-graduate student and more difficult, painting the kitchen. I really have no idea what to do about that kitchen. What color goes with green? What about that area underneath the bar, should it be green or kitchen color? What’s tricky about the kitchen is then, do we paint the huge wall on the stairs the same color as the kitchen? (you can see it in the picture below…)
Husband siting! I’m of the mind to just paint everything green just to keep it simple, but a little voice in my head (my husband’s) is telling me that’s probably not a good idea. I really need one of those reality shows to help me out right about now! I can’t even pick matching clothes, let alone paint colors!
Oh, and just so you know, that tiny little TV in the corner? The one with bunny ears?Its my husband’s dream to replace that with a giant 52in. flat screen upgrade. The funny thing is, that since our time in this home (Oct. 1st officially) neither one of us has even plugged that little guy in. And we don’t have cable.
I can see us getting a mattress first, because this is what our masterbed room looks like right now:
Ouch! Splinters in my back!
