We were lucky enough to have been able to buy a fairly nice home (especially for a couple in our mid-twenties who just got married). Our living room even has crown molding! Yeah, it's sagging in one spot, but I'm sure I can fix that.
This post has been a long time coming. I just knew it was going to be massive, so I kept putting it off. Oops.
Just a warning, this post is extremely picture heavy.
When Tyler and I started dating, he showed me his massive book collection (lots of graphic novels, mostly), and mentioned how much he would love to have built in book cases big enough to hold them all one day.
I'm one of those people that fought Pinterest with all my heart and soul for the longest time... And eventually succumbed to its glory. Seriously, Pinterest is dangerous. It makes me say things like "I want to hang an antique chandelier in the laundry room." Where does that even come from?! I really do though...
One of my first posts was showing how I whitewashed our brick fireplace. However, I didn't paint the mantle at that time because I wasn't sure if I wanted it white or not. After living with it for a few months, I decided I wanted to paint that white too. So now, here is phase 2 of our fireplace makeover!
Phase 3 involves getting rid of the insert.. but I'm nervous about trying to move that, so it's staying for now.
I'm so glad to be able to put this post up. This ol' beauty is where I keep all my fabric and other sewing notions (at least, the ones that don't go in the desk). And it's got a history to go with. This cabinet was my great grandmother's (possibly my great-great as well, but I know great for certain). My mom said she remembers her grandmother rolling out biscuits on this thing. How awesome is that?!
