Around the house.

IMG_0236 IMG_0237 IMG_0248 IMG_0249 IMG_0251 IMG_0255 IMG_0257I know I haven’t posted many pictures of the house yet, mostly because I feel like it’s been one never ending project. Every time I take a picture of a room, it changes a week later. Basically nothing is in it’s “done” stage Instead, we are still fully immersed in the “currently under renovation” stage. But a few things we have done lately…
1. We finally hung the shelves in Leah’s room which houses all her “these are not things to play with” items.
2. My EXCEPTIONALLY talented husband built me gorgeous open shelving in our kitchen. I have been pining after open shelving for years. My “Home” Pinterest board is FULL of open shelving ideas and, since we’ve been married, I’ve talked to Brett about one day having open shelving in our kitchen. So, when we moved into our new home and totally gutted the kitchen I saw a perfect opportunity to make my dream a reality. Luckily, I married a man who is gifted when it comes to woodwork so I just told him what I wanted and how I wanted it to look and BAM, suddenly I’ve got my gorgeous dream kitchen open shelving. 🙂
3. Animal crackers are such a staple in this house that I decided to house them in a pretty glass container. Which only makes me eat them more often.
4. Over 2 years after getting married I finally found the perfect frames at IKEA to house some of my favorite wedding shots. I now have 2 of these frames hung in our entryway, welcoming guests into our home with our love pictures.
5. Brett and I spent two very long Saturday’s painting our entryway, family room, and dining room a perfect shade of greyish/blue. I LOVE the color and I am amazed by how much brighter the house now looks.
Up next…we want to tackle painting the floors. If anyone remembers me mentioning this before, we have terrazzo floors throughout the house (minus the bedrooms which we carpeted when we moved in). Although we eventually want to put in hardwood floors we have a LOT of square footage in this house which equals a LOT of $$. So until we can save a little more to tackle that project, we were thinking it may be fun to paint the floors! Some of my inspirations:  d86e260105964115ad31fe544b590aa321fee6527ed0c4fe7e513b69717d41aa df00afce918516ffabc238debbebf87e ec7174649249094c248c9708ddc852bfObviously this would be a lot of work, but it would be a ton cheaper than putting in hardwood. And I love the look so we are going to research more on how we could do this on top of terrazzo floors!
I’ll keep posting more pictures as our house continues to come along!

    The house looks great! I love that you hung up wedding pictures (finally) and the kitchen is really coming together! The animal crackers in the jar is my favorite decorative piece though.

    Where did the scrolls on the bottom of the shelves come from? Did you get them with the rest of the kitchen? They match so well!

      Haha snacks always look prettier in glass containers, right?? 😉 I love how they look, just sitting on the counter, always readily available for a quick snack!! And yes, the corbels came with the kitchen cabinets. It came with a big shelf, but we couldn’t use it because we didn’t have a wall long enough to put it on!
