recently i had a 2 hour period where the whole house(excepting the pit of despair that is the garage) was mostly, almost, pretty close to clean. i know! i thought it was the apocalypse too!!! since we've lived here almost 2 years this august, here is the long awaited house tour that no one has been begging me for!
the library. christened this by the big kids because this is "where the books are". makes sense enough to me. i would call it the "puzzle pieces with the tabs ripped off room" or the "broken crayons shoved under the bookshelves room" or most likely "where old cd cases go to die room" for reasons unknown to them.
and the other side of the room. i really want to get this deskset for in front of the window for afterschool homeschool time(sounds so much more fun than homework time!).
the entry way or the police forensic fingerprint collector's dream. paint like chalk so everything shows up! especially if you've got a kid who sneaks cheetos and then slinks away up these stairs. my dream if i lived alone would be to paint every wall white and then have large colorful artwork everywhere.
thomas' home office:
scarlett's almost ready room. more pics of the final product after this weekend!
our master bedroom, which is oddly enough, the smallest master bedroom we've had since law school, but best neighborhood. ironic, don't you think?
would it be weird to have this gigantic picture of us hanging over the bed? how about 2 gigantic pictures hanging over the bed? what if i finally broke down and got a headboard? i found a lady who upholsters them in any style you like and i got one for scarlett, but for me(and i guess thomas since we are bunkmates), i'm having a hard time committing.
looking down into our living room. thomas had me order curtains specifically to counteract all this beautiful natural light during football season.
reagan's room. he wants me to paint it green.
our table has been covered for the last few months with a gallery wall in progress. i've been trying to located important family pictures for a while and it's not an easy task.
my 1997 dream kitchen complete with blue countertops and hunter green flooring. every tornado that passes through, i pray that it will destroy just the kitchen.
i love this breakfast nook, it only need about 10 extra feet to make it workable. and a pantry about 5 times the size. someday....
i forgot to take pictures of blythe's room.
