Surely you remember when I posted about moving to a new house... in MAY 2010? You remember seeing photos of the new place after we moved in?
Well that's because today I realized I hadn't posted any. No house tour, no brief photos of a living room or a bathroom. Nada. And it's not because I didn't take any (is that a double negative?). I took pictures when we looked at the house the second time and then pics again after we moved in. I wanted to write a post on choosing paint for the interior when I realized that would be the first pics you would see.
This. Will. Not. Do.
I realize now looking at the pictures that there's a reason I didn't post them... they look like absolute hell. Worst pictures I've ever taken in my life. They give you no idea about how big the rooms are and I didn't even photograph two of the bedrooms. Whatever. At least I'll feel better that there on here and in my mind I'll be convinced you're not confused (however anyone who reads this blog is going to be confused, this I do realize).
We moved in May before the store opened and I went back to work full time in July (do you even know about the store? BLOGGER FAIL.) I mentioned before that the house is a 3 bed 2 bath built in 2009. It's a generic house in a generic subdivision, which makes me miss the bungalow. But rejoice! for two bathrooms and a master bathroom big enough the whole family fits inside.
You walk in the front door (and stand in the corner of the living room to get a pic of said front door):
And see this giant wall and vaulted ceilings that remind me of a barn. Our TV has to live on this wall:
Straight ahead from the front door is the door to the backyard and these windows (the only in the LR):
Just to the left of the back door is the dining room with little (and I mean little) bump out and single window:
And then our kitchen. It has WAY more counter space and cabinets than the bungalow. That is awesome. Two thumbs up also for the open floor plan:
If you walk to the oven and look left, you see the door to the garage, the pantry on the right:
And the laundry room on the left. I thought the laundry room was HUGE... until we got all our dirty clothes in there:
Walk back through the kitchen and dining room, into the living room and see the doorway to the right in the picture below?
It takes you to a hallway which has the doors to the two spare bedrooms, the master bedroom, and the hall bath:
I told you these pics were capital B-A-D. The hall bath has it's own linen closet and lots of storage space:
In the next pic, you can see the doorjams for the two spare beds that I didn't photograph. In my defense, they are hard to photograph and whatever. Excuses. So here's the master bedroom:
Two windows on the west wall (at least I think that's west...):
And the wall where the headboard goes:
On the headboard wall, is the door to our master bathroom which is the greatest ever. Two sinks, lots of cabinet space, linen closet and TWO count em' TWO walk-in closets:
The toilet has a privacy wall, which Justin thinks is awesome (for whatever reason):
And here is a terrible picture of one of the walk-in closets:
Now I realize I don't have pictures of the front of the house. I totally could take a pic now and say it's from last May though, because we've done nothing (other than have it re-seeded TWICE). Maybe I'll do that today when I get home...
The house is now full of all our crap and few things have changed and I blame A) the wedding and B) my laziness and general decor indecision. But here's something I can promise you: this spring & summer, I'm going decorating crazy. I have so many ideas and plans and just need to DO IT. My concern though is that every time I do start decorating, we decide to move.
I'm kinda hoping that doesn't happen.
But I DO love a good move and a new-to-us house.
Now that you've met the house, it's time to bust out the design ideas! Any suggestions, or general ribbing of my craptastic pictures? Let me have it!
