Lucky for us the previous owners had already moved into their new home and had done a wonderful job of patching, repainting the whole house neutral and putting in nice carpet. It was like moving into a new space. At first I was like urgh....it's all khaki pants! But now I totally appreciate it because it has made painting over the khaki a breeze! No holes to fill and since I buy really good paint, one coat has done the job! Woohoo! I've since painted just about all the walls our color palette...this just happens to be the first project I tackled. And it was the smallest, but has made the biggest impact! This is the little hall that connects our kitchen to the garage, the laundry room (to the right) and the half-bath (to the left). It is of course khaki pants here.
Our little half bath was a
little dark really dark and totally out of character for our creative explosive house. So......after changing just about everything, we now have a bath that makes us all very happy while going....umm...potty.
The over the toilet cabinet was just too much. It is in the garage sell pile now. I'm not exactly sure what you'd call the painting technique in this room. Faux something....that was covering a world of faux pas! This wall, if you look carefully at it, will find all sorts of ick. That's why it now has a giant camper painting on it!
I happened to have the cute wooden box in the basement. It's perfect for holding toilet paper! I've started a collection of robin's egg blue pottery and found this room to be a perfect spot for it until it grows. I wanted a shelf to hold other nic-nacs like our Little People Family, silly kid pics, more pottery and mirror I found at Lakewood years ago.
It's just so....so....not us. And now....
So, there it is. The first nesting project tackled and completed. It started a snowball effect. Yep.....just about got the house nestled. There will always be projects on the to-do list. It's just my personality. And makes the house fun to be a part of.
