Speaking of the little apartment (and the rent house... remember that? The one with pink walls and green carpet? That was fun... *shudder*), it was half the size of our house. While the rent house was bigger than the apartment, it had the strangest layout. So when we moved here, we suddenly had 4 bedrooms instead of 2, and a massive living room that needed more furniture.
This is my moment where I vent for a second... I promise it won't be that bad.
It's discouraging for me to see blogs of homes that are fully decorated. They claim that it cost them just $200 to COMPLETELY redecorate their living rooms. Uh, last time I checked, the paint alone is going to cost that much, if you're lucky. While we have a neutral color in every room of our house, it's a very dark neutral. And I'm not loving it. It will cost us well over a thousand dollars to repaint our house- and that's if we just do it ourselves. It will take forever.
So here's my promise:
I'm going to post pictures of the house very, very soon. I'll show you pictures of what it looks like right now... ya know, without stuff hanging on the walls, no furniture in one room, everything. Then I'll show you the (extremely, painstakingly slow) transformation. Be prepared for this to last several years. But hey, I guess blogging is all about the process, right?
