We’re in!

OMG WE LIVE HERE.

I mean can you get over this backsplash???

There were times when I honestly did not know if this day would come. There were a few nights after the movers came that we and the cats slept on an Aerobed in the empty old apartment while some plumbing issues got sorted. But we live here now.

The craziest thing is that it looks pretty much exactly as I imagined over 6 months ago, only a million times more vivid and beautiful.  We still have some work to do – I need to wallpaper the powder room, the office is a mess, and of course there’s the whole backyard. I’ll do a separate post with side-by-side before & after (and maybe during) shots, but for now, let’s focus on the beauty of the after. I love this house.

Master vanity. So many decisions that somehow came together.
