it is overwhelming to try to have the house showroom ready in a short amount of time. since i am not exactly susie homemaker, it'll probably be a while before our home looks close to perfect. i'm trying to take it one room at a time (that's what the lady at the jcpenney home store told me). tonight my friend melissa and i hung up curtains over the sliding glass door in the living/dining room. this was top priority so creepers can't look in at night when i am home alone (come back from mexico soon, james!!), and i am very proud of us for successfully using a level and drill.
here are a few pictures. for some reason they are blurry and have spots on them, so next time i'm going to try taking them with sunlight instead of the flash, but this gives you an idea.
before picture of sliding glass doors that lead to our patio.
voila! someday i will steam the new curtains, but the important thing is that they're up!
window that looks down from upstairs into the living room. sometimes i look up from the couch and think the light in the window is a person's head, but i'm trying not to freak myself out so much.
dining room. thank you lady on craiglist--your table is functioning well until a new dining room table jumps higher on our priority list.
pretty place settings. i love them. thank you target, pier 1, and wedding gift card givers.
