This part was such a satisfying transformation for me!! I'm not sure why, but this was my favorite part for the renovation!!!
That mostly completed our projects as far as changing the physical structure of the house... I mean, we had plans to renovate the master bathroom, but we got a $9K quote for that one :( So, needless-to-say, that "little" project had to wait!!! As we were finishing up the bathroom, our furniture started to arrive... And that's when the work ended and the fun began... Getting to decorate a newly remodeled home is that absolute BEST part!!!
Coming from a 900 sq/ft house that was completely decked out with IKEA furniture, I was absolutely ignorant of the fact that when you order NICE furniture, it usually takes about 8-10 weeks to be delivered... Ouch... So we were without furniture for the entirety of the construction process (insert about 12 crying emojis here)! It ended up being a good thing in retrospect, because the couch I wanted wouldn't even have fit in the house with the wall still up, but it was hard for sure!!!
So, here's what I've done with the place so far:
This gallery wall was the very first thing I did!! I hung those pictures just a couple hours after that wall had been painted (and just a couple hours before we hosted small group at our house)... We had nothing else in the house other than our dining room rug, and somehow I convinced myself that adding some pictures to the wall would make it all better LOL!!!!
