Our Humble Abode

This is for all you that have requested to see what it looks like inside my house. We have lived in our house for almost a year now. I have been really hesitant to post pictures because I am SO picky about how it looks. It takes such a long time to get things looking how you want them to. Oh and...cash. I have really tried to put some things together on a very tight budget. I'm sure I will continue to change and add along the way.



Originally the table was maple and the chairs were brown. It was a huge project to paint them and finish them.
I found these bamboo chairs at a second hand store and re-covered them.



My grandma made my kitchen valance out of an IKEA pillow case.
She is so talented. The shade is from IKEA too.
















The vintage sign in our kitchen was given to us by Trav's grandma. His great great grandpa used to sell food from his farm. The chrome and glass shelves used to be in my grandma's house.
