Our NEW home!

Wednesday, May 11, 2016

As usual life has been wild, although, I can say our normal is really close! I can feel it and I'm just so thankful. 
I'm excited for y'all to have a mini little home tour! There are some things mostly cosmetic we are having done ;) BUT I would love your opinion on anything in the house you see!

Front view! I'm taking out all the lava rock! And changing the front door color ;) 

Front door ;) this is getting painted and a new glass door is being installed. I have picked an old fashioned looking screen.  To the right is the sitting room or formal living room and dining room.

Formal living and dining. I wish the pictures did it justice! The dining room is huge and it fits my huge farm table and chairs AND my kitchen hutch. I just made curtains for these beautiful Windows and all that's really left is paint. I eventually will change the carpet but it's not high on my priority list.  The doorway from the dining leads to the kitchen. We are planning to widen the walk way just to give it a bit more of an open feel. 
A white kitchen! I love everything about this kitchen minus paint colors and lighting. All of that will be changed by summer, we are also getting a farm sink installed. 
This is the walkway we are going to widen, you can see the dining room peeking through. Just needs to be a bit larger!

I did change the curtain and the lighting will be done this week! Through the walkway you can see the playroom!

Sweet little playroom. I love this room and it is really coming along. I'm searching for a child size farm table with a good rug. And it will get painted! 

Also new lighting. I am going to keep a fan though because the airline movement is good with little ones playing!

Laundry room. Only things are new paint and also re-paint that cabinet! Also I'm relocating the clothes rod away from the pretty window ;) 

Family room! Solid hard woods and beautiful cabinetry. I'm currently working on curtains for those windows. The tile is being removed and replaced with hard wood. The floor is being stripped and re-stained to a lighter grayish wood color! Also lighting and of course paint! 

I'm considering white washing this stone. And the door you see is being changed to a white garage door.

The white door is being changed to a beautiful French door! And the tile is being replaced like I said. The doorway you see leads to the kitchen/ laundry area!

Backyard ;) you can see the playroom siding glass sore, and also that whit door from the living room that's being changed to the French door. Also that covered back porch.... Swoon! I'm looking for a good porch swing. 

That's the door being replaced on the left. And the other door is actually our garage. Theirs hall been painted a beautiful white! And now I have the sweetest hanging baskets of flowers in between those posts. The trees are pecan trees and we have had lots of wild children climbing all over! We are sitting on half an acre, I wanted more but I can argue that this was the perfect house!
Let me know what you think. And any ideas you have!
