Tuesday Topics: Six Favorite Things in Your House

I am loving my house and have yet to show you guys all that we have done, but I promise I will!

I am also so sorry to be posting this so late. I have caught some sort of bug and have been sick all yesterday and last night. Here is hoping today is better...

In no particular order, I love my:

Tomorrow my couch will be delivered! Soon our bedroom mirrored side tables will arrive. I love my rugs that I have gotten (still mulling over the living room one...long story) I love my bed, I love my chairs...I love it all! I still need to find a dining room table. I really really do. Anyone have any ideas? I would be eternally grateful...

Cabinets and Backsplash and Countertops
We really changed the look of the cabinets for cheap and it added so much! Then we got the granite and the backsplash just tied the whole thing together. Kevin even created his own under cabinet lighting system that looks fanny fan!

It is a lot of work, but I love that in my front and back yard I have trees in the desert! I have even started planting some new plants and making it ours!

My Doors
I love my door hardware. Taking it from brass to ORB really made the door look more white and crisp and higher end looking! Such a cheap and somewhat easy process!

Hear me out! My mom and I painted the house and I loved being able to pick my own color to make my space. The two guest bedrooms I didn't paint. One day I will most likely paint them. Paint can change a space and inspire you. Okay, love fest over.

Our House
I love that Kevin and I have our house. It is a roof over our head that we have made our own and I love having it as more then a house. It truly is a home.

  11. It's so exciting to wait and get new stuff. hope you feel better. Relax as much as you can. and enjoy your new furniture! :)

  12. You're gonna share pics of your new furniture, right? I love decorating but painting always intimidates me!

  13. I want to have a house of our own too! Houses are so expensive where I live! That's why a lot of people never leave their parents' house.

  14. I live your house too! I'm so super jealous! You need to send a picture when those mirrored side tables come in. Feel better!!! We gotta be ready for our double date this weekend!

  15. i can't imagine ever owning a house (and i'm 30)... must be nice!

  16. This is awesome. Being a 1-bedroom apartment resident with my hubs I'm totally jealous of a house! Show some pictures :)
