You guys have been asking and asking to see our new house, and I finally have a room "done" enough to share! :o) The living room is the first room you walk into from outside, and so far, it is my favorite room in the house. It has lots of large windows with gorgeous wood trim, a beautiful staircase, and tall ceilings, which make it feel nice and spacious. It opens up to the learning/play room, which is intended to be a dining room, but instead we opted to make the living and dining rooms a shared space, since it's so large. (And this way we have somewhere for kids to play when guests are here-so nice!)
All we really did to this room was paint the walls and ceilings white. Which took forever! I don't think my shoulders will ever forgive me! Then we added furniture and decor that we (mostly) already had. We wanted to keep things very simple, so the beautiful wood and beveled glass windows would be the focal point of the room. The framed verse art (Hobby Lobby) and the Ocean themed paintings (thrifted) bring a little of our personalities into the space. I'm always on the lookout for more of that! And my neighbor (We have the best neighbors, you guys!!) says we need more family photos...I definitely think she's right about that. :o) Some day we will take up the carpet and restore the wood floors, but for now, the kids are enjoying sliding down the stairs way too much for that.
So, I don't know, basically...this house in the bomb.com and I have no idea how we ended up with such a blessing! We surely do not deserve it.
Hopefully I will have more rooms to show you soon! I'm almost done with the learning room. :o) Yay!
Love you, dear friends!
P.S. I just wanted to let you know that I have been trying to take these photos and write this post for weeks, but just haven't had any will or passion to motivate me. But the comments you all left on my last post, and the prayers you've been offering for me and my family have encouraged me so much, and given me a such a spark! Thank you so much. :o)
