Our New House

Here are a few pictures of our old apartment. It was a one bedroom with a small living area and one bathroom.

This is our old living room :(

This is our old kitchen, dining room, office area :(

This was our bathroom area :(

And our bedroom :(

Now we have a 3 bedroom 2 bathroom house with a huge kitchen, living room, entry room, laundry room, walk in closet and a little yard (not fenced). We love it! We can actually relax when we get home rather than trip over each other on our way through the door :) And we can have people over because we have 2 queen size guest beds.

This is our kitchen.

This is the other side of the kitchen and you can see part of the dining room.

This is the laundry room, which has another door the outside behind the hamper.

This is the door off the living room.

This is the living room, with the free entertainment center we got off of craigslist again.

Here are the curtains I made for our front and side doors. They let light in, but do not let anyone see in:)
This is our extra room in the front, this is all that is in it besides my new piece of furniture I made, tools and leftover wood.

This is was an old cork board we got for free from craigslist with a queen size bed. It was pretty beat up, so I decided to cover it up with fabric and put some ribbon on it so we can put up pictures and cards we get.

Here is the view from the front door looking into the kitchen before we moved anything in.

This is looking at our front door before we moved anything in.

This is a head board we got for free also with the bed and I reupholstered it. Before it was a mustard yellow velvet form the 70's, it was ugly. I found some cheep fabric and changed it. I have never had a head board before, it looks like we have a real bed now, even though it is on the floor :) Dan and I tried to have it up on just a metal frame, but that lasted about 5 min. Just lying in bed if you moved your head or hand it squeaked loud. So we took the bed apart in the first few minutes after getting in bed. Some day we will get a real bed frame :)

This is our master bathroom! I think with this and our walk in closet together it is as big as our old bed room :)

Well that is our new house. Dan and I love it so much and are so comfortable now, it is a million times better than our apartment.
