I want a new/old home badly. I have lived in my current home since 1998, before husband and kids. I am more than ready. I want my stuff out of storage. I want my own bathroom. And space...oh how I want space! Not that I don't love and adore my family...but I am sick of putting my makeup on at the kitchen table and blow drying my hair in the dining room/kitchen/bedroom.
I know, I know, first world problems right, boo hoo for me. Anyways...here are just a few of the wish list spaces on my hodgepodge of a list. In case you are wondering...wood paneling is also on the list...let's save that for another post!
A garage! Oh how I would love to have a real garage that a car could fit in! Not just bikes...and mowers, and shovels and small wild animals and stray cats!
Look at those beautiful floors! Their before is my after.
Space...room to breath.
I wonder how many cotton balls can be shoved down that drain?
I hadn't noticed until now...but under that cute green little side table there appears to be an unused toilet...with a baby in it. I like everything...except that part. Not that they aren't making exceptional storage use of it...I prefer to put the babies in a basket hanging over the tub.
I can't wait for my daughter to have her own room. I never had the chance to decorate a true nursery for either of my kids. When my son came along, the extra room was my step-daughters. In order to keep things as peaceful as possible, I just put a crib in it, and kept the rest the same. I cannot wait to create a space for my little girl!
And, more importantly...a space for me and my husband. Every morning we end up in different beds, usually with a child next to us. I'm not sure if that typically happens with small houses...or just with us. We never fought for our own space so now we don't have it. Our kids almost always fall asleep in our bed, and one of us ends up sleeping in the kids room. Our own space will be a dream...and by ours...I mean mine...but he can have the remote and his very own end table. But that's it.
Enough said. This is beautiful. And I love the Bon Ami soap. It's made here in Kansas City!
Did anyone else spy the Katie Daisy print?
I still can't imagine a real laundry room. Right now our laundry shoot is throwing your clothes down to the bottom of the stairs. If you haven't clicked through this link yet...do it. Life Made Lovely has some home tours.
I will have a mural...a mural and wood paneling...a mural, wood paneling, and my own bathroom and that's all I need!
Friday Saturday Lovelies!
