“Move into our home and finish decorating” is on this year’s bucket list, but it’s a much bigger undertaking than I anticipated. We have an entire house to fill and too many ideas floating around to make concrete decisions. Whew… it’s a real challenge! We did manage to design and create a few amazing pieces that we are truly proud to have in our house. Some projects came from craigslist.com and we added our own touches while others came from scrap wood that we found around the community; that’s one of the perks of living in a newly developing area. We have a long way to go, but we’re starting to feel like we’re home.
This armoire came from craigslist. Originally, it was dinged up and outdated, but with a few coats of primer and paint, it’s now the centerpiece in our living room.
Our table and chairs were a similar find. The 80’s wood stain is a thing of the past. The new colors tie the breakfast area and the living room together and add color to our lives. Our side table makes me proud of Darren’s creativity. We found a used piece of wood in the dumpster across the street; add a few nails and left over paint and we have a spectacular place to put our wedding photos.
What to do next? Paint the walls? Buy more art? Work on the office? Finish the bedrooms? The list seems endless, but when you’re having this much fun it really doesn’t matter. We’re making a home for our family.
