I've wanted to do this post for awhile now, a little show and tell of our first home.
The year was 1997, we were newlyweds with no money, but were excited to own a home and I was excited to decorate it.
Remember- it was the time of fake plants (I had tons), frilly florals, and hunter green (so don't judge).
I look back and realize how much my style has changed, yet things that I really loved I still have and use today.
We brought all four of our kids home to this house and LOVED it. It was full of great memories and fun times, and we were sad to pack up and leave, even though we knew we'd outgrown it.
So.....for your enjoyment, I'll show you around the place.
The front (fancy huh?)
View of the family room from the foyer.
Dining room, man I had a lot packed in there.
Kitchen. I painted the cabinets myself
Kitchen windowsill. Country anyone?
Foyer looking into the downstairs bath.
Downstairs bath. I told you I had a lot of fake plants.
I was probably the most proud of this room. I copied the paintings and stenciling from a Pottery Barn catalog.
I have no memory of decorating this room. Strange huh?
The Boy's room
Whew! I'm tired.
Thanks for looking!
