Our New Home: Main Living Area Before Paint

Happy Monday!

I'm excited to share more of our new to us space with you today, as promised!

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!

My oldest came down with a high fever and nasty cough.  She can have pretty fierce asthma episodes when she's sick.

I had planned to go to Junk Barn Girls on Saturday but had to cancel and stay home with my baby.
Now little sister is getting it too... yay.


If you follow me on instagram, you've probably already seen a couple sneak peeks.

We'll be painting the walls and ceiling white.  We chose to buy our paint at Sherwin Williams, they were having a 40% off sale so we couldn't pass that up!

They matched the white that I had my heart set on, Restoration Hardware Right White, actually they already happened to have it in their system.  

Yay for us!

I believe it was 3 shots of gold or something like that.

The white we chose is very similar to Sherwin Williams Westhighland White and we almost went with it.

Right White is the top one in the image below, but I don't think its a great representation.

What do you think? White to highlight all that gorgeous wood?

Who doesn't love a kitchen with a big island!?

Quite a change from our current tunnel like kitchen, so open!

Oh yeah, this is the loft.  

There is built in bookcases on both sides of the loft.

There's also a bedroom up there, a play space and a potential craft area.



Yes, I just said that.

...moving on.

I'll share more of the upstairs soon.

But... here is a sneak peek.

Well hello there gorgeous milk glass lights! I love these pendants.

 ...and I'm going to use the heck out of this stove!

Oh la la you pretty thing you!!!

I plan on hanging sheer linen curtains for a little bit of privacy.

This house is closer to our family business, as in... its practically right outside the door.  

Family, employees, UPS... yep.  Curtains.

That's it for now!

I'm going to share progress updates every Monday so don't forget to subscribe.

You can also follow along on instagram.

Thanks for stopping by!  Have an amazing day!!
