Thinking Out Loud

We sold the dining set, and I was strangely relieved. It's still here, they are picking it up next week, but it means that we are at least starting on our switcheroo project. Here is the dining room right now...

This room looks incredibly yellowed in this photo, even after I adjusted the colors! I need to learn a bit more Photoshop, obviously. Anyways, room really isn't yellow, but more of a light tan. I think the paint may work with our bedroom colors, but I am itching to paint it anyways. Maybe a fresh start sort of thing. I doubt I will still feel that way after I paint the three rooms upstairs! Here is what we have in our bedroom currently, furniture and bedding wise...which also looks very yellow, but is not.

Wondering about the white curtain behind the bed? Before we bought our bed, we just had a bed stand without a headboard. There is a tiny closet behind there that needed to be hidden. When we bought actual nightstands, the bed would no longer center with the curtain (they were too wide). It's been on my to-do list to move the rod over. Sometimes procrastinating pays off! At least no more holes to fill from moving it!

Hello Darlin', it's been a long time...

Nice to see ya..
Haha, well enough Conway Twitty, sorry about that.
Wow, it has been a very long time since we have posted anything. Nothing much house-wise has been going on, but our kids have certainly been growing and changing. Maybe that is why no posting, ha!

If you have an old house, you understand that there are times you love it, and times you are pretty sure you hate it. We have had it on the market once when we thought we were going to build. Luckily, we didn't, as the economy took a dive and it might have been hard to pay for said house. Then we thought about it again, and then the weather warmed up and solved most of our grievances. So here we are now, it's winter again, but a mild one, everyone is warm, but we are out of space and feeling the need for more bedrooms, bathrooms, and room to grow.
We are not moving houses though, we are just going to move things around in this one and someday add a master bathroom of our dreams. Hopefully, someday soon.

The baby is now almost three, so we moved him out of his baby bed and into a twin size bed. He's only fallen out a couple of times, no injuries, and now we are onto potty training (my favorite-not). His room is the smallest in the house, so we will start there. I think it will be less tiresome for you to just see the swapping around, rather than read it. So here it is...

The current office will become the master bathroom/closet, and the downstairs closet and tiny bathroom will be completely reworked and a new powder room added.
