Guest Bedroom Reveal!

I have a long to do list for my home. The problem is trying to priorities that to do list. Every item in my home was purchase, from the farmhouse chandeliers in the upstairs bedrooms to the doorknobs. All the door knobs. Furnishing a new home is quite expensive. Even though I am giddy and excited to get this home completely furniture and renovated, I have had to take a step back. I have had to just learn to live in a minimally furniture home.I love it. I love the bare walls. I love the space. I love the feel of not having clutter.
On my last blog post, I showed some pictures of my kitchen and dining room, Today I want to share a few pictures from some of the other parts of the home.

It's not perfect. I still need a dresser and a mirror but those will come in time.  In the meantime, this is what it looks like.

Kitchen Dining Room Reveal

I moved into my new house in January and since that time, I have been slowly decorating and making feel a bit more like home. well, today I can finally reveal my kitchen dining room area.

My dining chairs I got for sale for $119 for two. The dining table is actually a writing desk that I purchased from Amazon. However it arrived damaged and the company sent me a replacement desk that also had broken pieces and damages to it.

I think we've hidden it well, but you can't really tell that it has broken in places.

It's a small space with a comfy feel. Let me know what you think.

My Urban Cottage

I’ve finally moved into my first home.  I’m bursting with excitement and happiness to share all my design and décor ideas that I’ve been pinning from google images and home décor magazines for many years. I am now the proud owner of what I’m calling my “urban cottage”, a small three-bedroom, two-bathroom ranch house in New York.  I’m so excited to make this home my dream home.  
For the past several weeks the cottage has been under renovations. Within days after closing we realized that there was leaking behind a wall in one of the bedrooms (which wasn’t noted on the home inspection report). Apparently, there was an issue with the gutters and instead of falling away from the house when it rained, the water was seeping through cracks in the brick façade. Thankfully we were able to identify the source quickly and fix it.
Initially, the renovation work was estimated to take about five weeks, however it’s ended up at nine weeks. And as I’m writing this now, my kitchen is still unfinishe…
