Sneak Peek!

So I am not even close to being finished with our house...really haven't done a lot with it at all lately. But here are a few "after" shots. The dining room used to be a bright red (see before picture below). I picked out a light cream/tan damask wallpaper for the top and had the bottom painted a chocolate brown. Still no dining room furniture so hopefully I'll have more after pics complete with furniture one day soon!

Also have worked a little bit on my Craft/Wrapping room. I had in my head I wanted to use candy apple red and lime green in this room since it's more of a fun, smaller space away from the rest of the house. So I took an old dresser I had and gave it a face lift with new paint and drawer pulls. For the walls, I found a gallon of "oops" paint at Home Depot for $5 and it looked close enough to lime green for me! And I also put a candy apple red monogram on the wall. Finally, my dad made me a piece to put my wrapping paper on for easy dispensing (on the back he wrote the Bible verse, "It is more blessed to give than to receive" which I think was very cool and a great reminder! Still have lots more to do with this room too but it gives you an idea of what I want it to look like one day. I think it will be the perfect place to wrap gifts and other creative stuff I hope to learn soon like sew!

And finally, even though I am a beach and summer girl, I have to admit that the fall is beautiful! Here are some pics I took this week outside our home.

Outside our front door

Beautiful colors!

Creek full of fall leaves

Happy Fall Ya'll!
