Almost in for 30 days.. PICTURES! :)

I thought of writing an update post several times but honestly; I didn't have any pictures and I know everyone wants to see pictures! We still have a lot to do but we have a lot put up so far. Here we go!

My 6 year olds room. I will be making the curtains. Eventually. At least the rods are hung (thanks to my dad!) The frames I just hung up last week and I need to print some pictures for them. I have more wall art I just haven't hung it up yet. The dresser was an ugly 40.00 craigslist find that I painted with annie sloan paint. The frames in Lanie's room are from "The Organic Bloom" & you will see many more throughout my house;)

The girl's jack and jill bath. 

My 3 year olds room. I just hung her frames up and I need to switch out the pictures. I used these frames in our old house in my other daughters room. I still need to finish painting her dresser, you can see the top drawer is different in color than the others ;) There is still so much empty space in her room! The frames in her room are from "Poppy Tree Frames".
 Oh and yes, she was napping during these.

Finished upstairs...The girls rooms are at this end.

The master.
I made our headboard a few weeks ago when my sister in law flew in from Houston and surprised me! We made hers back in the fall and she helped me with mine! We have to buy a king size mattress so that's why the headboard seems so tall right now; we only have a queen on the frame. I made the curtains for in here. I want to get another panel to put behind them, maybe something sheer? They are the same material that's on the headboard... it's a linen type of material.

The chaise is from Ikea but I found it on a facebook local for sale page. love it!
The frames are " The Organic Bloom" and are my favorite.

Downstairs full bathroom

Office into dining room. I will be updating these pictures soon because I purchased a Steel Case Desk off of craigslist and I've had it painted...I'm waiting to pick it up now! That bookshelf needs a new home too. Those random things lying against the walls are our window screens that we are STILL waiting on the builder to install.

Outside deck; it's been so cold we haven't been able to use it yet.

This is the mudroom space that I will start working on this summer. I want to make built ins.
The garage is to the right, the kitchen is to the left and I'm standing in the pantry.

Breakfast table will go under the light, we have found a table we like but we are waiting on it to go on sale . The builder lost our vent kid for our range hood so it's just hanging out like that until the replacement parts come in. We will be doing a back splash ourselves...eventually.

I still need to show the living room, guest room, media room and master bathroom. I will hopefully get to that next week.
The builder has a TON of stuff to correct still. Some things were things they should have done before we moved in but are now being pushed until our 30 day. Overall I love our house and I'm excited to use the outdoor living space when it warms up. I'll post some exterior pictures soon; I forgot to take some today.


  1. Your house is so gorgeous! You did a great job with your daughter's dresser too! Was there any sanding involved with the chalk paint?

    1. No sanding! I love Annie Sloan paint because you don't have to prime or sand before starting... (unless you need to smooth it if it's really old) That paints sticks to almost anything! Thank you so much :)
