My new favorite room

My house may be only a mere 1,000 sq ft, but I love it because it's mine.  Shem and I have been working very hard this summer to remodel our place to our likings (aka. mostly my likings) and we're finally at point where we can live downstairs again!  Good thing too because school starts tomorrow for Shem and Tuesday for me and we'll be busy teaching again.

We're not finished, but here is a sneak peak of my living room.  Remember the space ship?  Yeah, it's gone. :)  I hated that thing so much that when we decided to get rid of it for free on craigslist I don't think I fully understood it's worth because we got call after call for it!  A few people even offered us money for it! 

A nice brown paint will adorn the wall with the doorwall.  You can see a patch of "cafe latte" to the left of the doorwall.  The brown will also be in my kitchen with nice white cabinents and a new countertop hopefully by next summer...kitchens are big and take time for beginners like us.
Yes, I am reading Mockingjay and so is can see the dust cover on my ottoman.

Thanks for commenting on our blog. I was able to find yours. I love your photos.

Rachael said... can I read Mockingjay when you are finished? Richard and I borrowed it for a few days from a friend in Utah, but I am only halfway through! YOur living room looks pretty great though. Good job! I can't believe you guys were able to do that all yourself!
