We finished painting the office and it looks AMAZING. It was so much work since previous paint jobs were crap and it took a ton of prep & scraping, but it is AMAZING!!!!!!! It was like a dusty eggplant purple (terrible. not my taste) with outdated dingy off white (more like yellow) trim. It made the room look so small. We chose a 50's aqua mint and painted the trim pure white. Totally new room. All the details will be white, black, or red. It's a really versatile color.
I still haven't taken photos of my new house, but that's mainly due to the fact that we've been so busy doing improvements. I've never put so much blood, sweat, and tears into a property. It's REALLY starting to show, though. I'm kicking myself for not taking before pictures because it's so drastically different. I'm really starting to love the house.
This weekend we're going shopping for more stuff to organize & arrange the office. Once the office is done & functional, we are moving onto the bedroom and the basement.
Bedroom needs to be rearranged badly. I'd like to paint it, too...it's this terrible shade of blue that I call "polygamy blue". Like this lady on the left:
Since I feel like typing up my home improvements...here's my list....seriously...
Create storage for office
Buy comfy chair for office
Buy rug for office
Re-organize kitchen cabinet
Put up magnetic knife holder
Possibly create magnetic splash for spices, utensils, etc
(our kitchen is small!)
buy new linens
buy new rug
buy new curtains
Iron thermal curtains
Finish houndstooth pattern on bathroom door
Make new crate for Bella (SO looking forward to this!!!!)
Create garden in basement (in the works)
Buy carpet for rehearsal space in basement
Make kitty scratch post (in the works)
Make entry way table
Fix electricity problem in basement
Find new light for dining room (requires approval from Landlord, probably won't happen for a while. We have an art deco chandelier in our dining room that is super long and doesn't create a good atmosphere)
Okay, so that's what i've been up to and will be up to. School, go to the gym, cook, making kombucha, playing with animals, house stuff.
