Home Sweet (Tiny) Home

IMPROVEMENTS!

I have been wanting to do this for quite awhile, especially since Ben and I will be moving soon. There’s nothing quite like the first home. I couldn’t ask for a better one!

Folks, it has its quirks. Let me tell you! You can’t run too many things at once, if you shut the door too hard, some of the electricity goes out, and not all the kitchen cabinets close all the way.

So, our first home is certainly not without its faults! But it’s been fun to make it ours, to live in it, make memories, and strategically use the small spaces that we have.

Today I’m going to share the living room/kitchen improvements, and then later, I will share how we crammed everything into the smallest master bedroom (can’t even be called that!) ever.

Let’s start with the living room! Since last time I blogged this, we’ve added the TV stand, installed an aquarium, put the lights back in the ceiling, added a decorative pillow, hung more pictures, set up the radio more attractively, added decor, and removed our coffee table.

We received our wedding photos in September, and it wasn’t until December that I got a handful of them printed to give to family & hang in our home! Procrastinate much?Β  Read more

Tiny Bathroom Makeover

IMG_8772If you have read any of my earlier blog posts, than you know that we have been in the midst of making a worn-out trailer look fabulous! Well, at least our style of fabulous, anyhow. After taking a small break from our home improvements, we put even more work into our bathroom and bedroom this weekend. And I have to say the outcome has been lovely! Very welcome, indeed, since the rooms we started with were scary and that’s to say the least.Β However, it is with great enthusiasm that I tell you our bathroom is just about finished. Ehem…it still needs a door, but like I said, it’s just about finished and I couldn’t be more happy with the results! So, let’s get this bathroom tour movin’ along. Oh and a warning, I am a writer, not a photographer. An inexperienced photographer with an old 4s iphone can only do so much, folks! Excuse the picture quality, and you’ll enjoy yourself just fine. Here we go! BEFORE: BeforeBathroom
