Our house! Before we move again...
We did some projects right away, but never had it "done" enough for a housewarming party. Now, I just got a job in Portland, and while our house is on the light rail line, it's an hour-and-ten-minute train ride to work, and it's cutting into my day too much. And, my fiancé goes to school in downtown Portland, so he has a long train ride, too. So, we're moving to a sort of blah 1980's townhouse in NE Portland, less than a mile from my work!
It sucks to be moving again. Especially since I never really finished working on our current place. But before we move and start packing (today!), I wanted to take some pics of the house as it is now, and keep them for our memories as well as share them with you. So take a look at the house I'll be leaving--you'll probably recognize some decor items from previous projects I've done!
Dining room: (I finally got the lovely grey I wanted for the walls!)
Kitchen: (I always dreamed of painting the cabinets white but they're oak and I never wanted to get into such a big project...)
Sewing room: (I'm not showing you the other wall! It's such a mess!)
Bathroom, which you've seen before:
Stairwell: (More of the pale grey I love, and I always meant to paint the handrail white... oops)
Our bedroom: (Charming but limited sloped attic ceiling)
Jason's office: (Also very messy, so here's just one wall)
(This room never got any of my decor attention but I thought I'd include it anyway)
Yikes. We're moving by the 1st of the month, so I'm doing lots of packing today and after work this week. Moving sucks! So much anticipation and everything gets packed away and you don't know where it is anymore, and you just want to get settled already!
I don't know how fast I'll get the other place decorated but I think we'll go ahead and have the housewarming party before we finish, because who knows how long it'll be before it's "done." I'd love to hear your moving and black-slate decorating ideas!!
