This is a picture of our house taken over a year ago- it’s now empty and we are working with a blank slate, I am going to try and blog about the progress because I love decorating! David just finished scraping all the popcorn texture off of the ceiling and we are getting ready to refinish those. The next step would be installing the new flooring which is pictured on the bottom right. It is from Lumber Liquidators and it’s called mudslide birch. Online it looks a lot lighter than the sample we have. It’s a deep brown and the planks are really wide. The chandelier we are going to purchase is from the ZGallierie, I went to see it the other day and it is amazing in person, and it is extremely large. The couch pictured is also from the ZGallerie but we are still undecided, it was our favorite so far and is really comfortable to sit on. All the paint colors I picked out from The Benjamin Moore West Elm collection, what is your favorite combination for the space.
Our monogram above the fireplace is gone so I thought about adding a few strips of removable wallpaper I found some that I like from Sherman Williams, Oh Happy Day has an awesome blog post about this wallpaper. As far as the actual fireplace goes we are going to leave the brick and just deck out the mantel with some reclaimed wood. Ohhh and did I mention that David wants to hang a deer above the fireplace, so we came up with a nice modern compromise! haha
Progress!!! Ceilings are patched, the ceiling fan is gone and ready for the new light! We have our floors in and the are ready to go in… as soon as I pick paint colors, so GIVE ME SOME FEEDBACK!!!!
The girls were enjoying sitting outside in the beautiful sun today! Every time we pull up to the house Ava screams with excitement “that’s my house” it’s so cute!!! To the right is our bathroom haha– totally gutted, but trust me David and his dad have BIG plans for it!
That’s all for now! I hope you guys will enjoy this journey home with us!!!!
