Ladies, please accept my sincerest apologies. I am sleep deprived and high on home remodeling chemicals. Fact. So I purchased a house and maybe it just happened to slip my mind to let you in on it. I like to get all of my ducks in a row before I start spouting off pipe dreams. So here is the reason I have not been 100% on top of my blogging game. Just insert a coral door and an antique brass lantern and I can call this place home.
It is so incredibly cozy. Below you will see the MLS photo of the living room. I suck at capturing before and afters, so thankfully MLS made up for my negligence. I will get better during this process, I promise.
So what has been done so far? My dad and I buffed the floors at 3:00 am two nights ago. I couldn't bear to live in a house with pecan colored floors. Couldn't do it. Once the floors dry, you will be getting updated pictures of the beautiful walnut finished floors. Let me just tell you, DIY refinished floors are a bitch. Do not let anyone else tell you otherwise. I am not sure my body will ever recover or forgive me. In addition, all of the painting has been done. Disclaimer: this is not the color in this space. Uhhhh no.
How about a little of the pretty? This fixture will reside in my hallway but obviously not as is. Can I leave anything alone? Seriously. A little rub and buff and metallic gold spray paint to cover the chrome base.The new antique brass chandelier to go over my breakfast nook area. Yes. Breakfast nook area. I have one.
Annnnndddd the true kicker and big finale to this post, the runner. I am finally fulfilling my dream in life. A leopard runner. Insert the bottom left hue of the leopard pattern and there you have it.
I have been burning the midnight oil the past 72 hours. Today? I am giving my body a break and going to get caught up on work. Like my design aunt Linda with My Crafty Home Life said, I am now part of the house poor club. At least it will be due to a fabulously stylish home. So many ideas and projects are floating around and I will be sure to keep you updated through every single project. Promise. XOXO
