Musings of A Beautiful Mess
 The back deck and our housewarming gift from Dirty's parents.
 The front room and our new couches. Love them, SO comfy!
 The landing to the front door. Don't love the color of the stairs or the linoleum, but that'll change in time.
 Where the stove WILL be in a few days. Thank GAWD for the grill, otherwise we'd all be eating pizza. It is NOT easy not having a range to cook on.
 The ugly curtains that are coming down as soon as I have new ones. I can't even describe how much I don't like these. We have them in the front room too.
 My kitchen ;o) Love the counter tops, they're stone. So easy to clean and match the floors nicely.
 The pretty floors we have in the kitchen and the dinning room. We are ALL in agreement that we HATE the cabinets, but once again, all in time. We'll be here for awhile, so no hurry.
 Our bed, where the magic happens, yo! Notice the no headboard or foot-board? Classy!
 The master bathroom! Not so much in love with that cabinet, but we haven't figured out what to do with it yet.
 Our sink, don't love the dark counter-top, but there's a Lowe's right down the street ;o)
 Nae's room. It's normally the cleanest room in the house, but she has a friend over and they got all wild and crazy. She has all kinds of fun ideas for her room. Can't wait to see the finished product.
 Zilla's room, by far the messiest room in the house. I swear there is NO way we're going to be able to make him keep it clean. I'm scared of the teenage years..EEK!
 The front yard, this was a few days before we got the keys. They have since taken down the post. We're thinking of putting a tall lamp post there, but we have some yard work to do first. That's Dirty's job.
 The kids' bathroom. It's VERY small but has a nice deep tub that will have to be refinished or replaced in a few years, the color is awful. And the cabinets! What the hell is with the single handle in the middle?!
Part of the backyard. The backyard is HUGE, as is the back deck. We're thinking about getting a big pool and putting it in this area and a hot tub under the deck. Just throwing out ideas right now.

And that's OUR new house. We love it and are looking forward to putting some work into it to make it OURS.

Wow, so exciting! Welcome home!

Regarding the cabinets, sometime just repainting them can work wonders. My mom had her kitchen cabinets repainted (from dark wood to white with an accent color) and at the same time had the "handle in the middle" like you have moved to the corner. Just a thought in case all those changes get super expensive. ;)

(And yes, all hail the awesomeness of the Lowe's down the street! Saved us from the ugly/broken a number of times!)

Woo hoo... congrats on the new digs!

Congratulations (once again)!!!

You are correct...those curtains don't look too good...I would term them 'dull' have greenery around your house, and you should add some of that brightness inside as well.

But I kind of like the dark counter top in the master bathroom...I think it would be easier to clean?

Anyways, I am so happy that you are in your own house and you can make as many amends as you want!

Take care!
