Home Sweet Home

Well, the time has come, we can finally post pictures of our house!

Here's the view from the bedroom door. It's hard to tell but there's quite a bit of room between the bed and the window, so we'll be putting a small loveseat or chair-and-a-half there in the (hopefully) near future:


The bed - those are the paintings I did on the weekend. I think they work pretty nicely in the space.


Obligatory bathroom photo - note the cool inside of the medicine cabinet - one of my favorite ideas put into action!


The entranceway - it was too narrow for a console table, so we installed a small wall shelf - it's perfect!


The view of the main area from the entranceway. Hm, who's that on the TV?


The living room area. Note our awesome new rug, and the chaise part of the sofa under the stripey throw - very decadent! Also, my "photoscape" makes its appearance on the wall that we painted ourselves. The color looks a little light in the picture, but it's a lovely shade of minty green. And zeroing in on the TV, why, it's Rose and Dorothy, a couple of Golden Girls!


The view out of the living room; in the foreground is our "window bench" made from Brian's old coffee table and some of the cushions I have:


My desk/office area. As you can see, we still need to buy a new office chair. The lone kitchen table chair that Brian brought with him suffices in the meantime:


The breakfast bar. Brian's favorite place to sit in the morning with the paper:


The inside view of the kitchen:


And one last shot, of my very fun sock monkey slippers:


That's it! I hope it was worth the wait. We love it.

Brian and Michelle,

I can't believe how much you guys have done in a month, since our visit. You did such a terrific job, much better than our first little nest. Can't wait to see the improvements in person.
