So I’ve got one of those long skinny townhouses so popular in the DC area. The good news is, we’re on the end, so we have a few extra windows instead of just the ones in the front. Yay for us! I’m still unpacking, but it’s becoming home-ish.

Looking towards the kitchen, before:

Living room, looking toward kitchen, after: (Bean is eating— wait for it— peanut butter toast!)

(Can you believe those are thrift store couches?! Me either!!)Hideous sky-blue kitchen, before:

Ahhhhhh…. much better! I can almost ignore the blue counters now!

The aqua-room, before:

The Aqua Room, now. Very pleased with this photo array, btw:

Loft at the top of the stairs, which will become the play room— they really liked that sky blue paint…

My room now— Montpelier Grey, with cream curtains brought from Little House.

It’s good what a little paint and some sweat will do. Still have a few boxes to unpack, but we’re just about ready to call it home.
