We’ve been here for a little over a month, so I thought it was time to share a few pictures!
We really love how our living room is shaping up! We are fortunate that the house already came with those beautiful handscraped wood floors, the crown molding and even the paint. We didn’t need to buy a single ceiling light because the house already has built in recessed lighting all throughout. But the other day, when I reached home to a place like that, I couldn’t resist myself from embellishing the house with some items I had on my wishlist on that website.
Eventually, we plan on replacing the TV stand with a plug-in fireplace and a mounted TV, but that’s down the road a bit. We want to put some custom molding on the wall of bookshelves to make them built in. We also want to use the white Ikea bench as part a board and batten mudroom when you first walk in. But, again, that’s all down the road.
We were able to host and entertain 12 adults plus their kids this last weekend, so the set-up is really working out for us. We are so grateful for this little house!
And, for next week, a sneak peek into our dining room!
