It is about time that I share a few “In Progress” photos with all of you! As I walk around our house shooting mediocre pictures ( throwing piles of laundry, dirty dishes and the like out of sight) I realize that our house is never in a state that is “perfect” for picture taking. The reality is that we Live in our house. We like to cook (A lot), we have a filthy little creature who likes to roll in the dirt/cement piles and track it back into the house and we spend a lot of time working on “projects”. So with no further ado, or excuses I will show you the current state of 1508.
The Family room:
The walnut credenza on the right was my First major woodshop undertaking. I designed it based on a lot of my favorite mid century furniture. The only thing missing are the two sliders that will hide the right and left compartments. I have a habit of finishing things to 95% . Andy will be happy when I finally complete this piece and prove I can finish a project. I will be happy to hide the Wii fit boards and yoga mat
Another piece of furniture near and dear to my heart is this stainless steel table dinner. I welded up the frame with my dad and bought a remnant piece of travertine for the top.
Now looking the other way towards the front door:
Now for the kitchen:
The laundry Room:
Can you see me trying to hide in the photo…hehehe… I should probably start learning photoshop
To finish off the downstairs we will take a quick peak in the office. Prepare yourself for a complete disaster…
How amazing would it be to have a charcol accent wall behind my flea market find London Bridge painting?! Oh…and to have the DIY plumbing pipe shelf finished and organized…a girl can dream!
On to the upstairs:
One day when I take the time to print pictures from our recent Southeast Asian excursion this picture wall will grow. Moving on into our Bedroom:
Currently working on convincing Andy that a patterned duvet might be a nice change from our three year old white one…No luck yet, and duvet’s are SO expensive! Maybe I can work in some new pillow shams
As I said, we “Live” in our house ( proof above on the nightstand)…
Off our room is the giant rooftop patio that is in need of some TLC. Once we finished the downstairs we are moving on to this outdoor space. I want a Jamie Durie style outdoor room up here
So many plans for this space…never enough time or money!
Back into the house we have the middle bedroom to show off:
So… this bedroom was supposed to be our “workout” room…hahaha…ever since our move in November it has turned into a complete dumping ground for everything and anything that needs a home. I tell myself every week that I am going to take the time to organize this space. Install a “california closests” type closet organizer so I can find everything a home…Instead we shut the door and hope that our minions show up to clean our mess. No minions yet, so the mess continues to grow!
On to the guest bedroom:
And finally the upstairs bathroom:
I admit that the bathroom is not “that bad”… It is just that it is not us. One day I will follow through with my grand plans in here, in the meantime I will keep trying not to drop my hair dryer in the sink!
So friends, that is it! An overall inside 1508 house tour. I hope you enjoyed and I can’t wait to show you what it morphs into. Please feel free to comment on the good, the bad and the ugly…Any organizational home office advice would be greatly appreciated.
BTW - I am working on getting myself one of those fancy Nikon/Cannon cameras…until I save up enough pennies please keep putting up with my “medicore” photos.
