I guess I'll mention how big of a change this place is from our last. Our last apartment was brand new with plush carpet, a brand new kitchen with granite counter tops and mahogany cabinets, tons TONS of space... *sigh*...So while the kitchen is about half the size and a lot more work (cleaning, storing etc..) we do have a lot more space throughout the rest of the house which makes up for it. It's also nice to pay a little less rent and be close to downtown. So Besides the moments when I see spiders, cockroaches and I about s*** myself, and this kitchen, we're very happy with the place and hope that we can fix it up enough to stay here for a couple of years. :) Oh and we also get to practice for our real house someday.
Brian killing a cockroach.. My hero...Yes that's a curtain rod.
Look at that totally awesome fruit printed liner too! Oh and can you see that "smoke alarm" hanging on the wall- to the right? It's hung by a nail, how nice. Makes me laugh.
And that counter top there, it's the same tile that's on the floor... I'm not sure how I feel about that because it's better than other tan counters behind you, but it's just the concept. weird.
Here are some after...
Okay so I know what you're thinking. It's not that different right? But you see what I mean about the general feel of the room? a little more cozy, a little more likely there is something yummy baking in the oven, more hangout-able...and a little less I just poisoned your cookies... ok a little far, but you get the point. What do you think about the blue/turquoise? are we crazy? are you scared to eat my cookies now?
