Here is a little bit of an update on our 1170 sq foot house since we moved in a little over 4 months ago. I constantly get overwhelmed with alllll the things that I want to do to our house. Sometimes its a good thing to sit back and look how far we have come. I tend to be a glass is half empty kind of person unless I remind myself otherwise, which is essecially what this post is all about.
Truth is, I wouldn't be happy unless I had a TO DO list of projects anyways!
So to make myself calm down about all the things I would like to revamp...here is a little update of how things are looking since we moved in.
Our humble little hand me down living room...
New ceiling fan from Ryans parents (it was in his little sisters room but when they put in a canopy bed, the fan had to go.)
Ryans brother Brandon and sister in- law Misty gave us our couch & coffee table/ottoman, which was a hand me down from Ryan & Brandons parents.
I found two white chairs from ikea on craigslist for only $15
My makeshift end table between the two chairs is obviously two baskets from target stacked with a tray on top. =) Ghetto fabulous, I know!
And that AMAZING rug (one of my fav things in our house) I found at Goodwill for only $15 still wrapped up from target.
Hopefully this will be our next Before pic in a year or so. =)
Our dining room when we moved in looked like this, the table came with the house which I revamped up in this post. The first thing to go was that wood and brass nasty chadelier.
I replaced it with this great pewter antique looking tear drop chandelier that I found on ebay for only $80 including shipping. Can't beat that. I was playing around with some window treatment and had that dark wooden shade to see how I liked it, but it was too dark. I opted for white panels from JC Pennys on sale for only $19.99 per pair.
