She's a brick...HOUSE

She's a beautiful brick house that needs so much love and attention, but we love her already.  So that's where I have been the last few weeks (ahem...month).

Dave and I had a fun closing day.  We got off early from work and went to Chili's for lunch.  Then we headed over to the title company and signed our lives away.



Then we had to go see Coral. Yes, we named our house...and our car...and the computer.
She is named after the street she is on.

It didn't take long before we started putting paint swatches up on the wall.  And maybe we got a little bit carried away...

The Family Room

The Dining Room - which is open to the kitchen and family room
(can you spot the Rudy's cup???)

My Office
And here are a few shots of the backyard

 So what did we do with alllllll those left over paint samples?



We mixed em together and painted our master closet!  But just be sure that you have enough to do the whole thing (if you come visit, you might notice one of our closet walls is a little different than the others). 


Many future blog posts will be coming up about house renovations including:
  • Gardening
  • Painting my kitchen cabinets a creamy white (with my amazing mom's help)
  • Getting all stainless steel appliances (on a tight budget)

BLANK CANVAS! Awesome. I love that you found such a cute house that you can make totally your own.

Now you need a cute puppy to really enjoy that yard...

Oh my goodness! Coral is so so cute! I already have ideas spinning in my head of what you will do! Love the deep windows in the dining room that I saw. Also like the openness and the "look-see" from your office to the dining room! Can't wait to see which colors you chose - all of them were so you! love you guys! enjoy the projects!
