So I’ve had NO time at all to read anything or watch anything worthwhile to write about. I have New Scientist stacking up in my kitchen and CNN crying tears because I have momentarily ceased the stalking. I have no choice though. This move has been hectic! I’m hoping that after thanksgiving things will finally be settled down. I just wanted to put an update on what’s been doing on with the house. I’ll attach some pictures too, but at the moment I don’t have time. We finished the kitchen. We painted it a green color and got all black appliances. It took FOREVER but we finally have them all in. We haven’t finished the family room yet, and we decided to leave the living room an open space for when we want to get new furniture. It’s right around the entrance way so for now it’s just clean and big.
We had an incredibly hard time with the bedroom. We painted the top a sky-ish blue and the bottom a light sandy brown. We have a white 1 inch stripe in between the paint and it looks really nice. I have conveniently deemed it the “beach” with the sand on the bottom and water on top :) Those colors are extremely hard to match things with, because I’m not a real fan of brown and didn’t really want too much around the room. I was trying to think of complimentary colors but I couldn’t without making the room look outrageous. So we went shopping around, and found this bad ass bed set that would match perfectly!
We found a matching shower curtain too for the garden tub!!
AND! Since the family room isn’t finished yet, we set the TV up in the bedroom, which is AMAZING. There is nothing better than watching a movie at midnight, in HD, cuddling on a really cozy bed and not having to get up to fall asleep.
We had to have new carpet put in, because the previous owners had some ugly brown shag in the bedroom and ugly blue shag out in the hallway. I have no idea what these people were thinking but it was like walking into the 80′s. I expected to see our time machine in the corner so we can go back to our decade. We also have our office setup, and I got this amazing desk/bookcase thing so it’s an all in one. I will have a picture of that up soon.
