Without giving away the bigger projects we've completed so far, here's a few photos of what a difference the paint makes in the house! The white in the living room is SO much brighter than the Swiss Coffee that it was when we first got our keys. It feels so open and airy... Granted, the photo below is from this morning and all of our stuff makes it feel so homey, but the white paint definitely makes a huge difference!
The bedroom, oh the bedroom. I wanted SO badly to have a gray bedroom, and I got it. It's perfect. It's our little cave at night, so dark and cozy, but the white and green accents definitely pull it all together.
We're still working on getting some art for the room, and hanging some of our photos. But for only being here 2.5 weeks, it's' pretty perfect. We both have slept so well in this house, it was definitely meant to be.
So, it's coming along. If you follow me on Facebook, you know the mess that we had with the real estate agent that was selling our last house for our landlord. She was horrible, rude, condescending, and unconcerned about the fact that we still LIVED in that house. After a month of hell there, dealing with her attitude, her unprofessional staff that tracked dirt and dog poop into what STILL was our home, we are so grateful to have found this place. Our landlord is awesome, he's been nothing but accepting of anything we wanted to do in the house and we couldn't be happier.
I'll be posting soon about some of our favorite projects that we have done so far, that have helped to make this house feel like our home.
