I will be continuing my house tour today. First, I have to apologize for these poor quality pictures. It's before I went digital, and my scanner decided to go out on me. So, it's a picture of a picture, I know-terrible. I just want you to have an idea of what we were working with before. When you walk in our front door, this is the wall to the right. There were slate rocks concreted on to the wall. It was a bear to remove. I'm so glad my husband was encouraged and excited to do home projects back then.
Here is the wall with the slate removed.
Here we are 6-7 years later. We have not done much to it since our initial remodel. I find my style has evolved a bit and there are things that I want to change, but it will stay as is for now. I don't want to spend money right now. My first Christmas gift was Barcelona Chairs from my husband. I love them. (In retrospect, I would probably want less of them, but they are gorgeous chairs). This view is the one to the right of our front door where the slate used to be. dining room. The entrance to the left is into the family room and the one to the right is to the kitchen.
family room. It seems larger than it is, but our door is kind of in the way. My dad wants us to convert our front porch into a glass enclosed foyer. Maybe, one day.
This is one of the things I plan to change in the near future. We bought this coffee table from Ikea because it was super cheap. We thought we would keep it for a couple of years until we found what we really wanted...um, yeah, it's been 6 years. I want either a mid century medium toned coffee table or something ultra rustic to break up so much modern in the room. I'm on the hunt.
