This post has been a long time in coming! Ben and I have done a lot of work on our little home, but our bedroom has been a slow project. To be honest, we still have 2 walls that need a lot of work, but since we are moving this May, we will see if it even gets done!
I’m happy with where we are at now, and it’s so comfy,cozy & tiny. I promise it won’t take much time. 🙂 And just accept that the photos won’t be Pinterest perfect! They were taken on an average camera, in a tiny box room, with blah lighting. 🙂 HERE GOES!
This little table will greet you as you walk in the room. We placed it in the tiny corner, adding a little more depth to the little box we call our bedroom. Shhhh...I know things need a good dusting. Be a polite guest & don’t mention it. 🙂
And that is our closet to your left. We fit almost everything we need right in there. Let’s be real, folks, it’s a tight squeeze. But we manage!
Yes, I’m 21. And yes, that is a Lisa Frank pencil case in the basket by our my bed. What?! It’s lasted since elementary! Anyway, above that, we have our little picture collection + the sign my brother bought for me the Christmas we got engaged! He picks out really good gifts. Read more
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.
I enjoy the extra decor surrounding our radio! Those two signs sitting on the radio stand were made by my Dad and are good reminders of truth and of him!
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? Read more
