♥ home sweet home ♥

Now that we’re finally {almost} done getting our new house decorated and feeling like home, I thought I’d post some pictures.

But first, I'm starting to panic! Just seven more weeks until the baby’s due, which means less than seven weeks to get her room ready. {You never know when she'll decide to make her grand entrance. It could be tomorrow, for all we know!} Jeff assembled the crib last week, we’re painting an old dresser white this week or next, and we’re organizing tons of clothes and bathroom stuff daily. Of course we’ll want our Christmas baby born into a home with a Christmas tree and plenty of Christmas decorations, so before she arrives, I also plan to deck the house in red and green and everything else “holiday” I can get my hands on. {I’ve been waiting for my nesting instinct to kick in—and suddenly, BAM! It’s pretty much in full swing.}

Without further ado, here’s the current state of our humble abode…

living room

our bedroom {homemade comforter and pillows}

distressed dresser {just paint it white, sand it and whack it with a hammer!}

bedroom windowsill {freddie's favorite spot}

our office {my desk + jeff's music studio}

baby's room {still in progress}
hallway + stairs

kitchen {fresh flowers from saturday market}

dining room

laundry room {chalkboards make even the most boring rooms fun, right?}

leave a little note!
