(Please ignore the mess. Keep in mind we are basically updating a whole house all at the same time, so it's a little hectic around here)
Here's a few pictures of the kitchen along the way, so you can see what the whole thing looks like!
First, the dining room table came from my parents. While we were in Korea they got a new table and chairs, so they gave their old one to us. The table is glass and the chairs were a bright coral/orange color. Those did NOT match our color scheme, so i did a quick fix and "reupholstered" them with some new fabric from the discount bin at Joann Fabrics and a staple gun.
This room is actually clean! But I still have some disclaimers. We have not gotten around to buying curtains yet. Also, we have not even started decorating in here, so it's very bare. Although, there is one piece on the mantle that I'll point out in a bit.
The couch will eventually have some more pillows; white and blue, but for now we just have yellow.
You can only see it in the second picture, but there is an end table next to the couch that I picked up at a garage sale for $3. It was falling apart, but it's nothing a little wood glue can't fix. That's getting painted too. Eventually. Before we move.
On top of the mantle is a piece of artwork that I found at a thrift store for $6. It originally looked like this...
The next room! The downstairs bathroom. This is one that I envisioned all on my own based off of a $300 mirror I (almost) bought from Bed Bath and Beyond.
Here's the bathroom. We are still working on repainting the tiles on the wall, but we're half way there.
It's a crazy life right now. So much going on, so many new things, new places, new people. I pinky promise you all that I won't be so absent on here once we are all settled in.
In other news, if you haven't yet, head over to our reception page to find out all of the details about our wedding reception! There is also a song request form that I would LOVE for everyone to fill out! Even if you can't make it, we'd love to know what songs you think we should play!
Miss everyone, no matter where you are, and can't wait to see you all (hopefully) soon! That's all for now!
