We're officially moved into the new place! You don't realize how much stuff you truly own 'til you move! The place is filled with boxes and boxes ready to be unpacked. I personally don't enjoy the process of packing, loading the truck, unloading the truck, etc., but I do enjoy the process of unpacking. Probably because it involves organizing!
Now comes the process of getting settled in and making it feel like home. I can't wait to transform the place. This is what the living room/dining area looked like on the day we got the keys:
It's a nice open layout. From the front door (which you can see on the right in the second photo) you step into a tiny entry and then into the living room. The dining area is adjacent and a sliding door leads out to the patio. Both the living/dining areas are visible from the kitchen. The floors are in good condition and there's a working fireplace (yay!).
The color of the walls wasn't bad, however it didn't really work with our existing furniture and since it's a relatively small space, I wanted it to feel as spacious and bright as possible, so decided to paint the walls a lighter color. I went with Olympic no VOC paint in Horseradish which is a lovely creamy beige. I didn't get a chance to take a good photo of the freshly painted room, but as soon as I get some of the boxes out of the way, I'll be sure to take one and share with you.
Off to catch up on some work then get a start on the unpacking. I'll share some more updates later in the week!
