getting there!

As promised, here's a little update on our house progress!

The front living room...still have some wall space to fill, but it's coming along...

I love our new tripod lamp from World Market and the armoire is from my parents' house! We are going to replace those footstools with a coffee table at some point...

And now I want new throw pillows. They're too bright and don't really go with the rest of the room.
I put together this little project yesterday! I need to move the E up just a hair, but just pretend, okay? ;-) I'm happy with the way it turned out, though. It's an inexpensive way to fill up a large wall...thank you 50% off Hobby Lobby sales!

Here's the dining room...obviously. I was worried about our tall table fitting under the low chandelier, but it looks pretty good!

I love this little hutch! Full of dishes my parents' gifted us with when I got the "Jackson" house.

And this case holds my grandmother's china. So sentimental.

There's a tricky corner in our kitchen with no cabinets or anything. It's not quite big enough for a little breakfast table, and that would look funny to me anyway because of the island/bar. Anyway, my brother had a desk in his apartment that he and Nicole weren't going to use in their house, so I put dibs on it! It fits so perfectly in the corner. I got that cute cork board at Home Goods (that places is AMAZING), and I need to hang the little key holder on the desk underneath it.
I may decide to paint the desk in the future, but for now, I have enough projects on my hands!


Moving right along...
Here's the hall bathroom (AKA my bathroom)
Can I just tell you how difficult it is to find a long shower curtain? Good grief. I ended up having to order that one because I couldn't find a single curtain in Abilene longer than 75 inches. I needed one that was about 86. It's nothing fancy, but it works!


I need to figure out what else to put in these little shelves.

And frames to fill, oy.

I'll keep the pictures coming as we get more done around here! As you can see, we've got a ways to go, but it's definitely feeling more "homey" every day :)

You've done such a great job! I love the litte cubbies in your bathroom! And the "HOME" above the couch...I have those letters from Hobby Lobby too! :) We used some in our wedding and covered them with moss. I bought a "B" for our last name and it's on our entry table!
