A little humble home tour

     I’ve been putting off doing my home tour simply because I wanted to finish some more projects and get more things hung up on the walls, but it is just too cute not to share. I am getting ready to decorate for fall so I wanted to capture my yellow-summertime feel before it changes. We are renting from a couple who built a studio{ish} apartment for their aging mother. She eventually needed to go to a nursing home for around the clock medical care so they decided to rent it out. We absolutely love it- It has vaulted ceilings, two light blue walls {we picked out the color-our landlord painted before we moved in}, lots of cabinets in the kitchen, and a very spacious bathroom with a walk in shower with two shower-heads. The best part for me is all the beautiful, natural streaming light. Also being able to see so much green outside our windows and not being in an apartment complex.  It is just a one bedroom so we are thankful for the walk in closet and very large linen closet. Check it out!

The lil’ baby entryway..

Now imagine the two shower streams from opposite sides. Sigh. No, we don’t have two bedrooms but we have an amazing shower. Marcus would like to live in here.

To Do-

Hang up floating corner shelf above our bed. Put wedding photo canvas on it

Frame maps and hang in bedroom

Hang up the rest of our engagement & Wedding photos

Find awesome old huge frame and have Marcus cut a mirror for it to put in entryway

Light sheer for window treatments for the windows in living room

Paint entertainment center white. And get rid of the T.V. then install shelves.  We want to do other things in our evenings.

Big fuzzy white rug for our bedroom

Possibly put desk in the attic

Full size couch

Declutter kitchen counters

Finish decorating ceiling shelf that runs along the living room & dining room-with either birdhouses/cages or mirrors or something. Still brainstorming

Make cushion for good seating on top of hope chest
