Let's start with the downstairs, shall we?
And our "Christmas" kitchen...eek
We started small, with new cabinet hardware...
And then I got really brave and painted our backsplash.
(it's just primed here)
Close-up shot--I love, love, love how shiny and crisp it turned out.
...And the big white instagram progress reveal!
I'm less stressed just thinking about it
And the pale green continued into one of my favorite little spots, the kitchen "nook"
So, out came the white paint...
And then two of our favorite visitors came...
And mom helped me make a window seat!
And two thrifted chairs later (need a third!), here we are.
More to do, but still, so much better.
Next up, the living room! Which looked like this for a really long time.
But back to those visitors...
And new furniture!
And a little bit of paint and pillows later...
Plus some curtains...and we're moving along nicely.
And "the den" prettymuch still looks like this.
But we might have something fun in store for it later...
Ok, part II coming soon...!
