The last time I posted updates about the house, we were moving in. A few weeks later we had done most of the unpacking downstairs and hung a lot on the walls.
The morning we were leaving to go on our road trip, I quickly snapped these photos. They aren't staged or styled in any way.
The biggest update since the April photos is the ancestry gallery wall. This wall is Sam's relatives and my ancestry wall is the one you can't see in this photo. We also put another leaf in the table. The dining room has come a long since the before:
Even though this photo was taken in June, I think we painted the door in May. The rest of the stairwell (going up the stairs) hasn't been painted yet. We hope to do that this month since we have several visitors coming this summer.
And here's the before with dirty tan trim and spindles and a boob light fixture:
Other than moving in our stuff, not much has happened in the kitchen. We're still trying to figure out the best layout for everything. Future plans include painting the cabinets and removing the railing on the upper cabinets.
The before, yellow walls, dirty tan trim, a ceiling fan, and almond appliances:
The library is coming along, and it feels much more like home with the gallery wall. I'm currently working on green velvet curtains for this room and I also want to get new chairs.
The before had disgusting carpet:
Here's the living room. We finally get to use the $50 sofa I got from Final Cut (anthropologie outlet), and I just bought a new rug from Rugs USA. I'm still trying to pick out curtain fabric. Future plans include painting the brick fireplace white, installing the light fixture, and (way down the road) getting a love seat.
We hung the gallery wall the night before we left on our vacation.
The before had popcorn ceiling, a brass ceiling fan, and everything was tan.
