Janurary 2017 | 6 month house progress

Posted on 1/16/2017

Since we have had seven snow days, and I realized today that I have been moved into the house for six months (in two days,) I thought it would be interesting to see how much it has changed! Though we didn't really move in till the start of October since the floors were being re-done, a LOT has changed! And a lot more is on the to do list.  But we have made great progress!

I have basically done nothing here - but I have plans! New floor, new cabinets, I am almost convinced to get new appliances- coming Spring 2017! :)

We totally re-did this room, which I love now. I can't wait to do the kitchen now. White everything... light wood... *sigh*


We did A LOT of work in the bathroom right when we moved in. That was like a 'phase 1' - there are definitely plans in the works for new flooring in here. I do like the flooring that is there now BUT it doesn't fit with the house and that drives me crazy every time I go in there. It feels too modern for the house.
Luckily, the bathroom is pretty small so I don't feel bad about forking out some more money to change it to something that will go with the house better. I already know exactly what I want! :) Hoping that will be an (early! :) ) summer project.

We painted the walls, ceiling and the carpet was all ripped up and floor re done (it wasn't stained, that is the natural color, which I love!).  I played around with the furniture arrangement, and initially just moved the table in for Thanksgiving, but we both really like it so it has stayed! I also am really feeling the Christmas lights, which I don't think I will me taking down anytime soon.
It feels so much more cozy now. We also just recently moved Nella's crate into the living room from the kitchen (we thought it would be warmer), and I want to build one of those cute pinterest covers for it or something. It's kind of an eyesore.

Bedroom One
This is actually the larger room, but since it's at the front of the house we decided to make it the TV/ quilt / study room instead of the bedroom. I think it was a good idea. The house is only 800 sq feet but neither of the rooms seem small, which is nice.
This actually has become my favorite room! Though there is some work to do. Those exposed cables. I can't look away... I need to problem solve that asap.

Bedroom Two
Our room. Basic bedroom status. IDK why the plants are looking at little sad right now. I blame the weather. 

Bonus! Hallway!
I want to get a really cool light for this hallway (the single bulb is creepy, right?) but I have yet to commit to one. 

And that's it! Can't wait to see what it looks like after the summer!!
