i figured it was about time i showed you our little place. we absolutely love it. slowly, we have unpacked boxes and boxes, and then packed up all those boxes with all our extra junk to donate to DI. As you scroll through the pictures, you’ll notice that most of our newly acquired junk comes from ikea, and no, we are not advertising for them. As for a color scheme, there really isn’t one. Once upon a time I had one, but it just morphed into whatever I deemed cute and necessary. :) Without further ado, welcome to our home!
our living room is quite cozy and i love our fireplace, even if it doesn’t work. we have a huge window that looks over our cute little culdesac. the big chair in the corner is my favorite to curl up on with a blanket and a book….and maybe some cookies too! sometimes i’m a little like monica from friends, there are certain things that have to be “just so,” like the remotes for the tv and playstation. they have to be in alphabetical order. weird? oh yeah.
the dining room is one of my favorite rooms, its so colorful! monica’s kitchen table was the inspiration for ours. we bought the table for $25 on KSL and refinished it (what a chore!), and purchased all the chairs at DI for $10 each. The yellow dresser was also purchased second hand and it serves it’s purpose as extra storage. the drawers are stuffed with extra pots and pans, camping gear, coupons, and other randomness. and yes, kramer does hang on our wall in the dining room. :)
our kitchen just makes me laugh. first, our apartments were built a long time ago, so we have really ugly dark brown cabinets. it also serves as our laundry room. don’t worry, we think it’s odd too! i call it our dollhouse kitchen, because everything is so miniature! the cupboards are so small cereal boxes can’t even fit in them! most the time we use the washer and dryer as counter space because well, there really isn’t much! the sink is half the size of a regular one, and if you turn on the garbage disposal you are at risk for getting hit in the face with water. hee hee. we love it though. we’ve had many water fights, mushroom and spatula baseball games, and dinners gone wrong in this little kitchen.
the studio is my man’s room. complete with too many guitars to count, a drum set, keyboard, microphones, and more equipment than i know what to do with. husband is quite the talented man. and in fact, he’s in a band. swoon. the little red chair, i picked that one out. for cute. we technically share the desk that’s shoved in the closet for extra space, and i’ve completely taken over the shelf on top with all my craft goods.
teeny tiny. yellow linoleum. temperamental toilet. that pretty much describes our bathroom. i’m in love with our striped shower curtain and overjoyed that we have a bathtub so i can spend hours reading magazines and devouring chocolate icecream while sitting in suds.
i love our bedroom. we got all our furniture at rc willey’s for a dang good deal. and that mirror? ikea baby! complete with love notes, a closet that is 98% mine, 2% his, and my laundry all over the floor (not pictured).
for those of you who are wondering, the letters above the bed were custom made by a friend of mine and given to us as a wedding gift. i'm trying to convince her to sell them. they're just too darn cute!
Now, come one, come all! We need some real visitors! I promise a real tour and freshly baked brownie cookies :)
