Anyways, I was thinking, I never posted pictures of the new house. The house is still nowhere being close to being finished (even though it has officially been ours for 8 months). With every thing I have going on, its hard to find the time... and its hard to find the money with all of the new bills we have acquired.
Anyways, I hope you enjoy...
Living Room Images:
The only real change that we ended up making to the living room was painting a different, but similar shade of green (without the diamonds & stripes!) and we added a ceiling fan.
In the bedroom, we ended up painting the walls a light, smokey purple... I like to call it Spa Purple, but I really don't remember what the name of the paint was. We also painted the trim an off-white shade.
The closet is still a work in progress. We tore down the entire frame and inside walls. We put up pallet walls on the inside and I found this amazing nickle-plated wire closet kit from Rubbermaid and Menards. We have most of it up, but we are still working on it. I think I may go out and purchase some of the drawers that they have available.
We repainted the bottom of the walls more of a milk chocolate brown instead of the dark color that was there before. On top, we covered the stripes with a real light pinkish white. So far, I have blue accents in the bathroom... eventually it will all be decorated in blue & brown.
I think the kitchen will be a never-ending process. We painted the cabinets green and the walls a light smokey grey. The paint color actually ended up a lot lighter than we had anticipated. It was quite a pain with that bright orange underneath, and some spots still need a little work to be covered entirely (walls were textured, making it even harder). We added a light fixture and changed the globes on the fixture over the sink. We actually made this from candle holders and just drilled a hole in the bottom. All of our appliances are black.
Eventually, I would like to tear out that bench and put in a coffee bar. Especially so I can eventually take out one of the existing cabinets to put in a dishwasher. :)
