House Updates

I realize I haven't posted any pictures of my house yet. It is still very much a work in progress, but I have never had so much fun decorating and making a house a home. I am so in love with my house, despite the fact that my dishwasher is broken and I still haven't come up with a solution for the back fence. I haven't finished all of the decorating, but I have a pretty good idea of what I want to do in each room but the bathroom. I have to say, it feels amazing to have a place that I look forward to coming home to!

This is the table by the front door - I made the flower arrangement myself. The little white door is the mail, I think its the coolest thing! (Ignore the blob of brown at the bottom left - that's Tia, she didn't want to move - go figure!)

A picture of my new rug (thanks mom!) - it's an indoor/outdoor rug, so it has a really interesting texture, and according to the packaging, you can hose it off if it gets dirty - a definate must if you have three dogs in the house! Mimi and Beta felt the need to make cameo's in this picture as well!

The fruits of my labor this evening - I recovered the cushions on the chair. The curtains are from IKEA (reason #3,203,202 why I LOVE IKEA!), the flower arrangement I made myself from the clearance aisle at Wal-Mart, and the cool candle holders on the right wall were a Christmas gift from my cousin. This area of the living room has been accumulating a lot of junk/to-do items over the past few weeks, so I'm glad to have the chair covered and my little sitting area completed!

Final picture - the chairs in the kitchen that I recovered. The cushions were originally white, but after being stored in a garage for a few years, they were disgusting and I didn't feel like cleaning them, plus who wants white chairs in a kitchen? I covered them black because, well, I like black in my house, and they match everything else!
Ok, that's all for now. I'm finishing working on my wall art project for the Living Room, and still brainstorming other parts of the house. Stay tuned for more pictures.
