it’s about time i got a few house updates here on this ol’ blog, wouldn’t ya say? it’s hard to believe we’ve been here a year already.
speaking of house updates…in case you were wondering, our kitchen project was put on hold (it never started), but more on that later.
i’ve had a few requests from some of you to see more of our house and i’m sorry it’s taken so long. hopefully you didn’t give up on me. i thought i’d start out small and share our little entryway…
ok, so the pics above are what the entry looked like right before we bought the house. there’s actually a little tiny vestibule you come through first, but i’ll save that for it’s own post another day. we ripped out all of the carpeting in the entire house before we moved in and had the original pine floors refinished. and when i say “we”, of course i don’t mean me and the hubs. we saved that job for the professionals. they know what they’re doing. if you’d like, you can read a little more over at my old blog. here’s a few pics of the exposed wood and the freshly sanded floors. Mmm. i just love fresh sanded wood.
as for paint colors,
we I had a different idea than what we ended up with, but it’s hard to get the yellows right. and of course, now i wouldn’t even choose butter yellow, but it’s just paint. i lost a little sleep over it though. don’t judge, yellows are tricky! my brother stephen, also professional painter, was patient with me. he has no other choice, ha. here is his prepped work space…
back in may, if you recall, we added a new light. it’s a little different, but we then again we’re different. we love it.
and finally.. here is our entry an entire year later. it’s simple and we’re happy. i love the sunlight that pours through here in the afternoon (hence the blown out pics). anyway…
the antique cherry desk was passed down and for now it’s working great and super functional. i love the glass knobs. eventually though, i’d love a low console table for this space. the rug was the first thing we purchased. all of the mirrors and artwork are vintage and found at flea markets or goodwill for next to nothing, except the fern prints. the little black windsor chair is my new favorite piece…found at the re-uzit shop.
i hope you enjoyed this little tour. thanks for looking :)
