In Progress!

Hey! Looks like we found our new home! And I am pumped!! Our good friend and real estate/landlord extraordinaire just bought a sweet little home one town over from us. He's ripping out all the old carpet, wallpaper, cabinets, appliances, fixtures, etc and making it all pretty and new to rent out! And it should be done just in time for us to move in a few weeks. Yay!

It will be the first time in our married lives that we've had a house all to ourselves...our own yard, own laundry, our own garden!

I snapped a few quick in-progress pics. I'm excited to share the moving, decorating, home making journey with you all as we move into this place and make it our own!

In Progress: Living Room...




In Progress: Dining Room...



In Progress: Kitchen...


In Progress: Master Bedroom...


In Progress: Bathroom...
(I'm no plumber but that does not look right.)

In Progress: Sleeping Nooks...
The house only has 2 bedrooms but it has giant closets. So we're going to get creative with the closet spaces. One closet will have the boys' bunk bed in it. I'll make it cute and cozy....like a fun hide out!

And another closet (below) will be the mother-in-law/mom/Grammy sleeping nook for when my mom comes to stay.  I'm thinking shabby-chic cottage feel?

And another (not picture) will be a tiny, tiny studio for me : )


And here's the backyard! It's pre-removal of giant dead tree and pre-planting of flourishing vegetable garden ; )

That's your little "in-progress" home tour. It's amazing how much of a transformation this place will have over the next two weeks!  Our friend is a rehabbing machine!

Well, I've got to get back to our giant packing list!

I love it. I think the sleeping nooks will be adorable. Can't wait to see them. You are so creative. Have fun!
