The Master Bedroom
Since moving into our new bedroom waaaaay last June, it's been a very long haul to get the finishing touches completed. It's still not perfect. I need to put up window coverings, paint the end tables and find better paintings for the walls, but at least it looks good now, not like we just moved in. We hung temporary paintings on the walls until we find the "perfect" pieces. I love it. I could stay in there all day and night. Now that I have my very own bathroom and a nice closet, my life is complete.New Bathroom
In comparison, the rest of our house looks kinda' dowdy, especially the kitchen. After the expense of our bedroom addition, we cannot afford to gut the kitchen and start over, but at least we can do a cosmetic upgrade. A new floor, painting the walls and cabinets, cheery curtains and a little furniture re-arrangement will do wonders for the space.
Icky Old Kitchen
Now that we have a laundry room near our new bedroom, our current service porch has room for the refrigerator. THEN, I can get some sort of cabinet/counter-top next to the stove.

That should free-up the shelves in the breakfast nook. I'd love to have a classic, vintage looking black and white kitchen....something like the photos below.Dream Kitchens
Oooo.....a chandelier in the kitchen....classy!
It's all a dance of furniture choreography and we have lead feet! I haven't even mentioned that we have to paint the exterior of the house and build new front steps and walk-way! Yikes!
