A few before's, afters and a work in progress!

It has been almost two months since we first moved into our first home and we have been quiet the busy bees. So much has changed from the moment we signed that stack of never ending papers. Our first task was the hardest and I can now say that I will not pick up a paint brush any time in the near future! With all the work we have done I am so proud of how much we have accomplished in just the past two months. I can't give it all away before the house warming party but here are a few before's and afters.

keep going down...
My new heaven!

Still so many accomplishments to be made in the house but I don't think that feeling will ever end. It's been so much fun setting up our nest to reflect our style and personality and so look forward to seeing what it all looks like a year from now!

Now here is my new inspiration:

There are so many other ideas from that post that I must have!

I love the fabrics and how they all flow but really make a statement. I am beginning to envision my front sitting room in these patterns! Ok now I am getting ahead of myself but soon enough it will happen!

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend and may your week fly by so another weekend can approach!
