What I've been Up to In My Home

As I have mentioned, we purchased our first home a few months back.  Here is a peak into what I have been working on. 

This is a shot into my kitchen.  We needed a set of counter stool badly.  
(And new paint, but we are not talking about that today!  
Not to mention, a new back splash in my dream world!) 

Because I am working on a budget, I turned to and purchased this set for an awesome price.
They met all my requirements: 

* Had to be COMFY...well this was more of my husband's requirements!
* Had to have a modern flair without going too overboard...I love the square cut-out in the back.
* I really wanted white...These are more of an off-white but they work.
* Had to be able to wipe down...My daughter + ketchup fingers.  You know what I mean.  These look like leather, but are vinyl.  Very easy to clean up!

Also, we have gotten our dining room painted.  To find out how I made sure I picked the right color, take a look at this post.

Here is the BEFORE:

And here is a peak of the AFTER.  I still have work to do in here -  such as recover the roman shades, put artwork up,  & hopefully get a new light fixture.  So far though,  new paint makes all the difference.  I love how it is coming along!

We are also working on making over our 1990's wallpapered bathroom.  Hopefully, I will get those pictures posted soon!  Thanks for stopping by!

  1. The stool that you have bought complemented the wall counter top shape and color. It's as if the stool and the counter top came as a package. Vinyl covering is low in maintenance and can last for a very long time, so great pick on that. Congratulations for having such beautiful house, by the way!
