We've Been Here for Months...

And I am just now getting around to posting pictures of our new apartment. I know most of you probably don't care what our place looks like, but I plan on eventually getting my blog printed into a book for our family to keep. It is easier for me than scrapbooking and I want to keep these memories! So skip this post if you want! You can see before and afters of the different furniture pieces down at the bottom.


 Living room
 Other half of living room. We have so much more space!
Huge kitchen!

Our bedroom. My aunt Paula helped with the wall decor!


R's office which is still a work in progress.



Other side of the office. Once again..work in progress!

Before/After
Before/After






I loved stenciling this table and can't wait to stencil more when I get the chance!


Spray painted this piece that my aunt, Mary Beth gave me, a deep purple and love it, somehow didn't get a picture, but there is one up above of the after.


These chairs I painted the same as the table and my aunt, Paula had the brilliant idea of using table clothes to cover the bottoms! They are easy to clean, don't absorb spills and it was such a CHEAP DIY!!

We love our new place, Sunny has a huge backyard, Milo has kitchen cabinets to climb all over, and we have no neighbors at the moment!
