House Tour

(In case you were wondering, I am taking a break from Angel Word this week. Sometimes, a momma needs to think about something else for a change!)

When I was posting the pictures of our dining room yesterday, I realized that I haven't done a house "AFTER" tour on my blog. At least not one I can find. So I decided that I would do one today! My house was picked up because we had company last night, and therapy wasn't until after lunch, so I got up early and took some pictures after Cole left for work. I don't know about you, but I am really nosey and LOVE to see pictures of other people's homes. So I hope you enjoy taking a peek into our home today!

First, let's start with the master bedroom and bathroom....
Here is our bedroom, as seen from the doorway. (Sorry- I made the bed in a hurry!)

Bedroom from the bathroom door. Our bedroom isn't a huge master, but it is perfect for the way we live.

Across from the bed is the dresser. We have a mirror that attaches to it, but I was a sweet wife and told Cole we could put the tv up there instead. Truth is, I like it too! Cole has something hooked to the tv- normally all the cords are hidden!

Cole's Iraq map still hangs in our bedroom like it did at our old house.

This was in our old living room. Now it is on my side of the bed. It is too small for the wall and ceiling height, so I want to beef it up with some candle sconces or something.

Here is our master bathroom. We still have a lot of updates we want to do in here. But for now, it is pretty much just like it was when we moved in. :( I am trying to be patient- the longer I wait, the more money I will have to put into it! Hello, heated floors! :)
Other side of the bathroom. I will spare you the water closet (aka toilet room) picture!

And while we are looking at bathrooms, here is the hall bath!

This is how it looks typically.

And this is how it looks when we have guests over.

Vanity area. I love that it is a nice big room with a lot of counter space! So all of our kids can be in there getting ready for school someday!

This is across from the vanity. I love that picture of Ava!
On the vanity. I love this frame (thank you HobLob!).

 And now lets look at the Living Room...

I like using photos as art, but this is an actual painting that my mom's cousin Sherry did! I love it! She did a matching one that is a little boy. My sister (who has all boys) has it, and I have this one. It is on the wall behind the love seat.

Looking in from the hallway.

Cross wall has survived Ava so far, and looks the same as it did when I first put it up.

This house is so much brighter than our old one. We have a lot of windows here, and I love it! And I still love my painted curtains!

Looking in from the dining room.

Several people have asked me about the fireplace tile, so here is a closeup picture. It is from Lowes in-stock selection.

Fireplace (sorry the picture is off centered. I am a horrid photographer!)

Looking in from the eating area/kitchen.
 And now the heart of the home (and one of my favorites), the kitchen!

Roosters for the French Country feel...
More roosters...

My pinterest copied sign above the door to the pantry.

Range area.

Sink area.

Bar area, looking in from the living room.

Standing in our bedroom doorway. I thought I would hate having the bedroom right off the kitchen, but the door is in a little nook and it is actually really nice! We are away from all of the other bedrooms, and close to the kitchen for coffee and midnight snacks!

Eating area from the right.

Eating area from the left (living room).That doorway there in the background is the entry into our bedroom.

I hope you enjoyed the tour!
