Remember our sad kitchen? (It's still a little sad.) Here it was before we moved all of our junk in:
The old kitchen fan had to go immediately and even though our new light looks a little funky with that swag (it had to be centered on the island or I would've gone nuts), I'm super happy with it. Still not my favorite room but it's definitely looking better.
+make fabric roller blinds *next project!! wish me luck!
+get kitchen rug
+hang wine rack
+tack up cords under the cabinets (looks so goofy like that)
+hang knife rack
+hang shelf above coffee table
+get/make cabinet for under pot rack
+hide all of the ugly appliances under the coffee table/island
+get new pots for our plants
Here was our bedroom before we moved in. Note the nasty light which is thankfully gone:
+paint closet doors like M.N. (jk, landlord would kill us)
+get rugs for sides of bed
I hate our bathroom (double faucets?!) but I have to admit that it does look better now than when we moved in. The plastic drawer thingy quickly went away, as did the frilly vanity thing above the toilet.
Note to self: never never never install white floors in a bathroom. Gross.
+get large bathroom rug
+paint red trap thing under the sink or cleverly hide it
+put art in frames
+paint walls if landlord ever lets us
Living area before (again, note the nasty fan):
Oh geez, what I'd do for that weather though...
Living area progress:
I am most happy with this room and spend most of my time here. It just makes me so happy with that beautiful window and currently awesome tree in front. :)
LIVING AREA TO-DO
+hang artwork above couch
+get bench for by the door, like this one
+get pretty plants
+hang plates above credenza
+get more rugssss
+dye curtains? probably not.
I'm not even going to show you the guest room or the office because they've gotten nowhere since the last time you saw them. We did move the blue sewing table into the guest room to make room for a new desk, but the desk won't be arriving until January 19th. I'll take a few pictures of those rooms then.
Slowly but surely...!
