The House- Bathrooms

Bathroom4

Sorry I missed posting this last week, time got away from me.  We had a shower for a sweet friend Saturday, so I was busy working on getting that done. When we moved into the house we knew we were going to have to redo the 3/4 bath, but the guest bath (though ugly), was in good condition and didn’t need much work. Here is what we did in the guest bath: Yup, blue walls, an ugly light fixture, ugly shower curtain and old sink fixtures. To update the room (without doing a complete makeover- yes I know that new […]

Kid Room #2- Pottery Barn Kids Inspired Nursery Knock Off

Mason’s room.  When I started looking for bedding for Mason I looked for a room with a classic, clean feel.  I didn’t want anything super babyish because we needed his room to serve as a guest room also. Here it is: Before and after:  Yeah, those orange walls were nasty! (picture on the right by Courtney Miller Photography). I found my inspiration from a Pottery Barn Kids catalog.                             Here is a picture of the in between (Asa’s nursery) Here’s a fuller picture of the one above […]

Cochlear Update

I’m planning on posting another room this week, but we had friends come over last night so I didn’t get it done. Anyway, I just wanted to update you all on my Cochlear progress.  In March we did testing and my word recognition scores improved from 44% to 62%. I was supposed to start my homework (listening to simple words and learning what they sound like) and I failed. Miserably. I *sort of* forgot I had homework until last week (what can I say? We were busy with the house). Anyway, I started my homework last week on Thursday (sit […]

The House: Kid Room #1

I know I said I wanted to go in order, but honestly order can go one of two ways.  I can show you the dining room, living room and playroom, or I can show you the kid’s rooms and guest bath.  I decided to go with the kids rooms first then work our way back. So…Asa’s room.  Well, he originally started in what is currently the nursery/guest room, and when we had Mason we moved him to what was the guest room.  My inspiration (or blatant rip off) came from Thrifty Decor Chick (for some reason I can’t get a direct […]

The House: Office and Kitchen

Kitchen1

Happy Monday! It has been a long week. We have had a fair amount of showings for the house. Can I just say, it’s exhausting getting the house ready before every showing! Making sure everything is “just so” with two little boys in the house can be trying.  But I’m praising Jesus that people are coming through! So I promised more before and after pictures.  Well, here they are! This is the office space before (when we bought the house-the one on the left) and during is on the right.  We used that table for games and small dinners for […]
