<<< psst! you can see a full list of my diy projects here! >>>
i hung a plastic shoe organizer inside our hallway closet door to store all of our household medicine and first aid supplies. i especially like having the clear pockets so it's easy to see what's inside each section.
while unpacking, i came across my collection of books by michael crichton, my most *favorite* author EVER. i displayed the books i love most (( and you can really tell on some of them! )) on the glass block windowsill in our staircase.
the previous homeowners completely gutted the kitchen when they remodeled so i know for a fact the grime inside the oven can't be more than five years old. how does it get to this stage in less than five years???
we had our final walkthrough today. it was sweet seeing lil' archer K run through the house for the first time and watching him explore the backyard - a completely new concept to him. i'm already imagining our lives one year, two years, five years from now...in this house.
BBQs in the summer.
snowmen in the winter.
bringing our first dog home.
K learning to ride a bike in the driveway.
family game nights.
sounds of little feet running up and down the stairs.
because there's so much other stuff to do in the three days between closing and moving in, we've decided to paint only the necessary areas for now: lil' archer's K's room and the sunroom.
i decided a long time ago i wanted white walls in K's room since it will be chock-ful of colorful toys. i can hardly believe this is me talking. eons of apartment living have made me CRAVE color. yet...for K's room, i'm set on white walls.
have you ever shopped for white paint? there are about a hundred shades of white...blue-based. red-based. green-based. creamy white. grayish.
