Some Photos of the Chaos!

Photos of the chaos! Well!  We've been in a month and I feel like I've been on a roller coaster ride.  With teaching starting up again, my photography business busy with weddings and senior portraits, my daughter's new swim lessons (for babies), and oh...I don't know..MOVING INTO MY NEW HOME!!!! ...things have been chaotic.  So....here is some of what we have accomplished in the short month since closing.
Mums the word!  At $30.00 for an awesome looking flower box...I couldn't resist!  The lawn is thanks to my AWESOME husband!  For one month of growth from seed...it's pretty spectacular.  :)

The "formal" dining room.  We are making it into a study/piano room.  That photo has to be hung up and those boxes gone...but I'm liking it so far.  Maybe throw in an nice area rug on top.

My mother's contribution to the home.  Kaylee's bathroom.
I found some great bath photos that matched!
Rug just inside the front door.  Sorry!  I just didn't feel like rearranging the photos.  I'm TOO BUSY!

Kaylee's Sleeping room.  Yes...she has two rooms!  The rocking chair that goes in that corner is currently in my messy office.

The area that receives the LEAST amount of attention...but we did manage to get a painting and the ceiling fan up.

Master Bath...with a little mess and a paint swatch. 


"Hallway"

Family Room.  We splurged and got a plasma.  Dustin built the cool frame that we will stain or paint at some point.  Love it!

New AWESOME table from Sheely's.  Couldn't beat the deal on this so I got that too. 

Here is the bed that my Aunt bought us for the guest/playroom.  It needs some nightstands and definitely a different bedskirt color...but I like the price of FREE....so this is how it will stay for now.  Oh yeah..and all the blinds you see....that's my aunt.  She showed up like a tornado of blinds...came while I was at work and finished then whisked away to do something else.  I don't even know how to begin to thank her.  Now...I just have to think of window treatments....not privacy.  That's AWESOME!

Another view of the playroom.  I love the owl paintings.  Another Ross bargain.

Hallway decor.  Can you tell I love nature?


 So that's all for now.  The other rooms are too scary messy to share...but I will get around to decorating them and sharing that too.  In the meantime...check out these flower shots that I took at our old house.  I'm thinking of blowing two of them up and putting them in our stairwell:

  5. I'm looking at these and all I can think is I NEED PAINT!!!! But...I'm going to wait a year. I just might go insane if I add another thing to my to do list.

  6. No matter how tiring and stressful things can be, I'm sure it’ll all pass once you move into your new house because of all the excitement.

  7. Random question, but, we are building a Venice Elevation L as well in Pittsburgh, not many of them have ever been built I think because it's impossible to find one to look at in person but, we are closing on Friday and my trim around the windows look like CRAP, it's crooked, and chipped, scratched, and pieced together, not whole pieces, I was wondering if yours looked like mine at any point or if you are still happy with how your elevation looks now after been in it for a while, I'm so regretting not getting an elevation with shutters now because of how horrible my trim work looks!
