I know I told you all that I'd only take pictures of the house after it's all put together but I'm feeling more and more that it may be months...even YEARS before that actually is the case. SOO instead, I'm giving you a tour of the rooms so you can see the BEFORE. This way you and I both know how things look NOW and we can use our collaborative imaginations to work some magic in these rooms and make them FABULOUS! I can't wait. I know I sound annoyed in these videos but you know how those weight loss pictures people take always have them with greasy unfixed hair, no makeup and big frowns? Well I'm trying to give you that mindset with my voice so when I video the FINISHED rooms, I'll be all happy and excited. Got it?
So first we venture to the boys' room. This is my favorite room in the house, it's every one's favorite room. I think this room has GREAT potential to be Pottery Barn with the slanted ceilings and (fake) wood floors. I want to start on this room FIRST but I feel that in order to make my house presentable for guests I should start downstairs.
(ps...I'm out of breath because me and Izey and Miah just had a dance party downstairs to Womanizer.)
Next is the girly room. I DO love this room, I just wish it was bigger. Kora has such CUTE room furniture and I know if she had more space it could really *sPaRkLe*! Either way though, I love the direction this room is going. Paint would add a lot to this room but I'm not sure I'm ready to delve into that just yet. It needs LOTS of fun stuff on the walls and an idea for the stuffed animals. Oh and don't tell me to get e net and string em across the corner of the room..that's so ghetto and if you're doing that in your house, take it down. Just kidding. No but for real...that's ghetto and she wouldn't be able to play with them if they were up high.
Oh brother, this room makes me wanna puke. It's Izey's room and the poor child really has no hope for improvement in here...at least not for awhile. All the furniture is miss matched because it's from all different places and I can't paint any of it but the dresser because the crib is someone else's and the shelves go to Kora's suite. Amber's sweet sister is letting us borrow her crib but it's taking us quite a long time to get it put together. I keep LOOKING at the crib but actually WORKING on it is not happening. I have to give the current progress credit to Austin...I really didn't do it. But maybe I'll finish it. Or maybe not.
My room. My face is turning red as I show you this room. I really have no comment. I'm hiding my face with my hands. I'm sorry you have to see my "I wanna be a grown up but don't really know where to begin" room.
Here's the living space. It WILL be my first project because I want to have guests over soon and they need a nice place to sit and visit in that's presentable. BUT, this is probably the most overwhelming room too because there is SO much space and it needs SO much decoration.
Kitchen which needs major surgery and the Dining room. Not really much to say but "hello walls!" This room will be worked on simultaneously with the living area. SO basically the entire downstairs will be first so I can invite people over without being embarrassed.
Fun times ahead and lots of creative juices will be needed to fill all these "wide open spaces" which means a lot of time spent at antique malls and Pottery Barn ONLINE for ideas ONLY.
So Amber...I just uploaded 6 videos in less than 30 min. You still workin on yours?
