I like how I’m calling this post “before” when I know full and well that it’ll be years until we see an “after.” I have been meaning to take pictures for you guys for the past several weekends and it just hasn’t happened, so I have decided to reside on the side of lazy and just use the pictures we took with my iphone when we first toured the house. The previous owner had the house in great condition, which is always lovely, particularly after one of the last houses we looked at had a basement that I’m pretty sure dead people were buried in. Yay for no ghosts. Some of my favorite things are/were the little nook off the master bedroom which I showed you previously, the front living room which has great light, and the outdoor fireplace, obviously. We have big plans to hang bistro lights and have many outside game nights over the summer.
Corey and I are painting the family room/dining room area this weekend and I am having my own personal battle of finding the perfect gray. I remember when Megan painted her room gray a couple of years ago and was having such a hard time and I thought she was crazy. No longer friends. No longer. To be honest, I am a little overwhelmed with the task of decorating when Megan has really always been the decorator. Obviously I have been asking her advice here and there, but this is the first time it is all me, and I am pretty terrified I am gonna mess it up. Just my perfectionist tendencies I suppose. I typically know what I like when I like it, but I am a little unsure of how to make sure things blend from room to room. And don’t even get me started on my confusion with all things rugs. I’ve pretty much changed my mind every day. Let’s hope I don’t go buying 52 rugs that I don’t like because those things are expensive. I’ll update you guys next week on how the painting turns out.
