We got the TV up and the shelves decorated. I am sure I will change them over the years, but this is what they are now. I can't wait for Christmas so I can decorate them! SO fun!!!
If you remember the green granite that was? Yeah, it is gone. :) We got new carpet, and we wanted a small tiled area in front of the backdoor to keep the dirt off the carpet. But I didn't want two tiles in the same room, so we re tiled the hearth in the same tile we used for the back door area, and used a long glass tile/travertine mosaic laid on the vertical for the fireplace face. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the way it turned out!!! Excuse the pink step stool. And the cabinet door I can't close until we get the cables ran behind the door. Ahhh, moving. ;)
Here is for those of you who can't remember or never saw the before picture of the fireplace...MUCH better now huh?!
Now on to the kitchen. The wallpaper is just a distant nightmare!!!
Yes, the green countertops remain still. :( But I have been looking at granite. I am just not 100% sold on what I want, and I would like for our poor bank account to recover from the moving expenses a bit before we off and spend 3k or more on countertops! But it will happen soon. I have faith. ;)
By no means do I like or want to keep the green. But it doesn't look AS awful without the horrid wallpaper.
I fell in love with these pictures at HobLob (50% off too! SCORE) They are french country and just perfect!!!
Now to the fun room- the room I did very first thing! AVA's ROOM!!!
