House Progress: Entry & Living Room

Happy New Year! I'm back sharing a few more photos of our house progress. This past weekend my cousin hosted a baby shower for baby girl at our house. She lives a bit further away, so we decided this would be closer for the guests. It was a nice push to put a few more things together around the house...especially since baby is coming in around 8 weeks!

Also, the nesting is definitely kicking in here and there these days, so it was nice to put the energy to good use. We are not doing a nursery for now since we know baby will sleep by us for a long time, so I'm organizing and decorating other areas of the house.

First up was the entry. The entry still needs a rug and lighting, but it's nice to have a mirror up and a little console. This desk was my great grandmothers that she passed to me years ago and was sitting at my dads house. I decide to strip, sand, and paint it for this space.

The little bench was an antique Japanese chair that had an extremely high back. I found it at a thrift store for about $5. We removed the back and covered it in a stripe fabric.

Oh, and if you need lemons, come on by! We have about two buckets worth :)



Here is the before: 




In the living room (which was clean for the shower!), I finally put something up on the walls and got a mirror for over the fireplace. I've collected prints over the years from different antique shops, the Alameda Flea Market, and most recently I shopped Chloe Warner of Redmond Aldrich Design sale where I was able to grab a few more. I also picked up the mirror from her sale. 




I mentioned this in the last post, but we are still working with all our previous homes furniture other than the coffee table. This window area drives me nuts right now, but it'll get done eventually! And I just noticed our coffee table is too far over, we probably moved it for the shower :) 


I'll continue to share more photos as we make progress. I might take photos of where we are at in the bathrooms, kitchen, and living spaces as well. Although not all shots will be pretty, the blog is a nice place for our family to have a little journal of progress!
